Our Christmas prayer service, featuring pupils from all classes was broadcast live from Carras Church which looks absolutely fantastic and is a credit to all involved. Happy Christmas everyone.
Follow our Christmas elf as he spreads the festive spirit throughout our school. Happy Christmas to everyone and best wishes for the New Year.
Stable Manners is a musical packed with humour and great songs. It tells the traditional nativity story from the point of view of the animals in the stable. Neddy, the horse, has sadly passed away and the animals in the stable are fighting over getting his stall for themselves.
The two angels, Luke and Gabriel, are planning the arrival of baby Jesus and become very unsure about the location with all the fighting. The shepherds and wise men are led by two stars to the wonderful sight in the stable.
The animals see sense after Jesus is born and apologise. They become friends again and decide to celebrate the Christmas spirit. The children performed so well and we were all very proud of them on Friday night. I hope they enjoy looking back on their great performance in the video below.
Philip yawns all day long! Why? Because he can’t resist gazing at the stars all night! The other children complain that his sleepiness ruins their games. But one night when Philip is busy stargazing he spots a moving star, and he can’t resist following it. While everyone else is asleep, Philip is busy meeting shepherds, sheep, angels and wise men – and then a baby king! It was one exciting adventure.

The middle room went on their school tour today. We went to the Museum of Country Life in Turlough. The children were split into two groups and took part in two activities. First we got a tour of the Museum, learning all about life in the past. We saw lots of old objects and tools from life in rural Ireland years ago. We even got to try on some clothes from the past which was great fun!
We enjoyed lunch in Brambles Café.
After lunch, we had a ceramic painting workshop. We learned that cups and plates are made from clay, dried in a kiln, decorated with special paint and then glazed in order to make them shiny. We designed and decorated our very own ceramic plate with special ink. We really enjoyed this workshop!
We had a great day!
