Free Breakfast

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!

Eclipse !

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!
