First Holy Communion and Confirmation

May was a busy month for St Joseph’s as we had Confirmation on the 17th May for the girls in Sixth Class and First Holy Communion for the girls in Second Class on the 28th of May. The school choir sang on both occasions.  Everyone participated meaningfully in the ceremonies which were very well prepared. The weather was beautiful on both days.

Easter eggs and Easter bunnies

The day of the holidays some children went on an Easter Eggs hunt in the school hall. They searched very carefully and were delighted when they found their easter eggs.

Some girls from Russia and Lithunia brought painted hard boiled eggs to school. In their countries they roll them, and try to crack the other eggs. The winner is the one whose egg is not cracked. They have to eat the hard boiled egg!!

Mrs. O’Callaghan’s Fourth Class made some Easter bunnies in their art and craft class. They were very clever as they made them from old plastic bags !
