Our First Holy Communion Retreat

On Tuesday we spent the day in Knock Shrine to prepare for our First Holy Communion. We played games, talked about Jesus in our lives and we heard all about the story of Knock. We had a tour of the museum and watched a short DVD of the story of the apparitions. We were lucky enough to visit the Carmelite sisters who make the bread. They even let us cut our own! We will use this bread on our big day. Here are a few pictures of our visit to Knock!

Colouring Competition Winner!

We were thrilled to hear that one of our classmates won a prize in the Barna Waste Easter Colouring Competition! She won a yummy Easter Egg-lucky girl! Well done, Keila. :)

Easter Egg Hunt

It was all about the chocolate today in Derrywash NS, and the Junior Infants went out in search of chocolate eggs that the Easter Bunny may have dropped along his way. If anyone needs help finding chocolate treasure this group are pretty good at sniffing it out! Happy Easter everyone.

Easter Bunny Excitement!

The excitement was magical in Junior Infants this morning when they saw that their Easter Baskets were full of chocolate surprises from the Easter Bunny.

Art Workshop at the Linenhall

Today we visited the Linenhall Arts Centre to see the exhibition, 'As Above, So Below'. We looked at the paintings, talked about them and then took a part in an art workshop where we got to paint our own abstract art. We really enjoyed the experience and everyone created something special. Thank you to the Linenhall for having us!

Easter Basket Display

We made some beautiful Easter Baskets today and left them on our Easter Table. Hopefully the Easter Bunny will drop into Junior Infants some day and see all the work we have done!
