Follow our Christmas elf as he spreads the festive spirit throughout our school. Happy Christmas to everyone and best wishes for the New Year.
We would like to wish all our new entrants for the school year 2020/21 a big warm welcome to Gortskehy NS! These are the gorgeous girls – Ruth, Emma, Shauna, Mackenzie, Leona, Laoise and Mia. Alongside the brilliant boys – Aaron, Dylan, Niall, Conor, Avan, Michael and Harry. I hope we share lots of stories and giggles over the coming year. Mammy and Daddy should be very proud of you all, as you are all doing so well so far.
To complete our Christmas concert in @Garrymore the pupils sang Daidí na Nollag, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Do You Hear What I Hear?, We Wish You a Merry Christmas and Merry Christmas Everyone. The children performed so well and we are all very proud of them.
Our Christmas play was called ‘I’m Gonna Shine’. This play was all about journeys made towards Bethlehem by various travellers in a search for true treasure, the newborn King! Gloria the brightest star of all, had a really important job to do – she needed to shine, shine, shine so that the three wise men could follow her to Bethlehem.
The angels and their heavenly choir helped the shepherds on their way. Meanwhile, a very special couple Mary & Joseph were also making the long journey to Bethlehem. This culminated in everyone gathering together in a humble stable where they all celebrated the arrival of baby Jesus.
I am very proud of all the Junior room pupils who worked hard over the last few weeks to learn off all their lines, songs and actions. The pupils and I thoroughly enjoyed making and performing this play for you. We hope you enjoyed watching it and we wish you and yours a very peaceful and happy Christmas.
