We had a great day today. We loved visiting our buddies in their costumes too!
Each week we will have a ‘Student of the Week’ and they get a trophy for the weekend.
Today we raised more for the Peter McVerry Trust to help the homeless by having a ‘Dress Up for Santa’ day! Great fun and a very worthy cause as we think of those who are less fortunate in the lead up to Christmas.
Our teacher Mr Ó Broin and one of the Dad’s from our class Keith will be dancing in Strictly St. Cronan’s on 14th November to raise money for our school.
You can vote for them at www.stcronans.ie/strictly.html.
Mr Ó Broin will be dancing with Ms Daly who is teaching 2nd class, and Keith will be dancing with Joan, who’s son was in Mr Ó Broin’s class a few years ago.
Today we said goodbye to Sergio who has been a part of our class for the last month. He is going back to his own school in Spain.
Today, we took advantage of McDonalds giving away free breakfasts, as a treat for how well we performed in the Mermaid at last weekend’s concerts.
When we got back to class, we had a good discussion about healthy eating and eating fast food in moderation. Lots of the boys like to treat themselves from time to time, but on the whole we all agreed that our class are a healthy eating bunch!
Today we got to experience the eclipse in school. This was a pretty special event considering that it won’t occur again until 2026. Deirdre Kelleghan from the St. Cronan’s Stargazers Astronomy Club came along with large filtered telescopes and eclipse glasses.
The Bray People photographer was there, and she even climbed up on top of our teacher’s car to get the best photo of us all!
Ar an Aoine, beidh na buachaillí in ann éadaí glas a chaitheamh le haghaidh Seachtain na Gaeilge. Beidh an rang ag bailiú airgead do Bray Cancer Support / Purple House.
On Friday, all the boys will be allowed to wear green to celebrate Seachtain na Gaeilge. We will be collecting coins for Bray Cancer Support who have recently been renamed Purple House.
