We are a very busy school! Each year as a treat, we all go to the cinema at Christmas. This is kindly paid for by the Board of Management and we have a fantastic day. Sometimes we hold a Carol Service or Christmas Play in St. Mary’s Church just before the Christmas holidays and then come back to the school for a party. All the parents are invited back for tea/coffee and to see our Christmas art and craft.

On Wednesday, 13th April, the Infant Classroom had an eggstra special  P.E. lesson to celebrate Easter!

Here are some photos of the Egg & Spoon Relay!

We had to be very careful not to drop the egg!

 

There were also hens laying their eggs in the Wandesforde Hall!

 

At the end of our P.E. Lesson, we played a Co-operative Game called “Rotten Egg!”. The children had to pass the egg over their head to the next person without dropping it! It was great to see the children working together as a team!

Wandesforde Open Day and Coffee Evening

The Open Evening was a great success.  Parents enjoyed looking at the children’s art work and class work. The Seniors did a wonderful job serving tea, coffee and cake. They made  €373 on their cake sale which was donated to the Susie Long Foundation.

 

Past pupils came to see the school again and helped announce the launch of the new prospectus and website.

Future pupils came and enrolled!

 

Photos were taken for the local paper:

Councillor Maurice Shortall came to visit the school and partake in the celebrations

And then there was the tidy up!

Our Christmas Party

Date posted: 27th December 2010 | Category Blog, Christmas |

After our Christmas Carol Service, we all went back to the school. The Parents Association had brought cocktail sausages, sausage rolls, chicken goujons and sandwiches for us and other parents had brought yummy cakes and chocolates.

Tom Byrne, chairman of the Parents Association, thanked all the teachers and other staff for all their hard work. Each member of staff and Canon Sherlock were presented with a lovely hamper.

The 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th classes watched a DVD and the 1st, 2nd, Infants and pre schoolers played games in the hall while the parents washed up and looked at all our art on display.

Then Santa came, each child got a goody bag and had his/her photo taken with Santa.

Miss Wilson got a hug!
