Rathpeacon school celebrate in style!

First Holy Communion 2After waiting for a long time, our Third Class really enjoyed their First Confession and First Holy Communion Days and you can see from the sunny smiles on Ellie, Kate and Katie’s faces just how much the day meant to everyone! Thanks to Fr. Gabriel and Fr. Fitzgerald who put so much work in to both occasions.

Fifth and sixth classes have been working hard to create some fantastic autumnal displays. They have experimented with line and colour to create these fantastic leaf aentangles, and painted burrows, dreys and nests for a range of autumn animals. Third and fourth Class also got imaginative with colour and created these autumn trees in a cubist style.

We are very lucky to have gymnastics teacher Ally visiting the school again and we’ve been working on making human pyramids.

Ms O’Neill’s fifth class took part in a webinar given by author David Walliams, part of an ‘Inspiring Ireland, Inspiring Students’ interview series organised by the Education Support Centres of Ireland. The children had a chance to submit questions beforehand and were delighted to hear all about David Walliams’ inspirations and life as an author.

Ms Buckley’s fourth class worked on a piece of 3D art and made stunning hot air balloons using multi-coloured strips of card. Mrs Coleman’s Class drew portraits with a difference, as well as portraying the children’s faces, they also showed an insight into what’s going on in the inside. The boys and girls included pictures of their favourite things giving a more rounded impression of each person.
