Good Luck Ultan!

Good Luck to Ultan Dillane playing with Connacht against Ulster on St. Stephen's Day.

He also played 12 minutes against Leinster last weekend.

Ultan visited our school 2 years ago to raise our Green Flag.  He spent the day in the school making pottery, playing rugby with the children,  and enjoying the day!

We wish him all the best in his rugby  career!

Santa Claus

In school this month Aaron and Carina made a papier mache Santa Claus. Carina blew up 2 balloons. One for his body and one for his head. They stuck strips of newspapers all over the balloons using glue. They did that 6 times. They then put on 2 layers of plain white paper. Aaron painted the body red and his head skin colour. Carina then made hands using paper and stuck them on the body. When the paint was dry they made a belt and stuck it around his body. Aaron stuck cotton wool on santas jacket and Carina helped Aaron glue Santa's beard, eyes and nose on. They finished Santa by making him a hat.  Carina then made a chimney for Santa. Aaron had great fun making Santa and now wants to make an elf!

The Three Little Pigs

On Tuesday the 9th of December the pupils from Shrone N.S. and 
Pre-School children went to the Ivy Leaf Theatre in Castleisland to see "The Three Little Pigs". We liked all the characters, but I think the Big Bad Wolf was the favourite! We were delighted at the sight of Santa coming down the chimney. He added a special twist to the story. We were delighted that we were all on the nice list but especially Sarah and Jamie who got a special mention. We had a great day out. We are looking forward to our next drama!

Rathmore Seniors visit Shrone with the O'Donoghue Cup!

We were delighted today when some of the Rathmore GAA team visited the school to bring us the O'Donoghue Cup! They beat Legion on Sunday 1-11 to 1-10. Most of the pupils were at the match to see the nail-biting finish into extra time. 

Well done Rathmore - We're very proud of ye! We were even more delighted when Mark Reen gave us off homework for the evening to celebrate!
