Valentine’s Disco

We had a fantastic time at the Valentine’s Junior Disco. There was dancing, singing and jumping for joy. We all picked our favourite songs and the DJ was busy with the special requests. Our end of the month disco after Cruinniú is becoming one of our favourite events in school.

Special Olympics

We are embarking on this journey together. Students and their families are completing their Athlete Participation Forms. Staff are completing their volunteer forms. School leaders have visited Scoil Aonghusa for ideas and advice. We’re on the road!

Hermitage Green Dec. 20th

We were so delighted when our friends Dan, Darragh, Griff, Dermy & Barry joined us on Friday morning to share music and celebrate the season. We showed them how we sing and sign Let it Snow using Lámh (having been well taught by Teacher Níamh & Teacher Jen in the previous weeks). We laughed and danced and sang together. The bodhrán and didgeridoo were particualar favourites with our students!

Dec. 12th was Christmas Day at school

It was a privilege to be at school today and be involved in one of the best celebrations of our whole year! Everyone came together to support each other and make the day as fun and exciting for our students as it could possibly be. We have to thank soooooooooooo many people….

Our students. They inspire us and challenge us and are the reason we come together with hope and ambition for themselves and ourselves each day.

Eileen, who minded us all and kept the tea and coffee flowing.

Deirdre, who is always organising us and doing so much that we never even notice.

Santa himself, the beautiful Mrs. Claus and the fantastic little Elf who arrived and knew all our students and how to make them smile!

Our Parents’ Association reps who brought cheer and recipe books AND beautiful food cooked from recipes in the recipe books!!

Rudolph! What a performance.

Kate and her buddies from Music Generation. Your connection with our students grows each week, Kate, and it is important to all of us.

Our lovely parents who came in for the fun and the craic and the photo op with the big man and Mrs. Claus.

Our wonderful staff, who tirelessly go about their work each day, doing whatever they can to support and help our students to engage and live enriched and fulfilled lives.

Feeling very grateful this evening…
