Catholic Schools Week. Tuesday.

Today in the Senior room we discussed diversity and spoke about how we are called to treat others as we would like to be treated.

 We did an activity where we paid a compliment to each person in the room and we received 12 compliments back. 

In the Junior room we spoke about when Pope Francis visited Ireland last August. He reminds us to say Please, Thank you and I am sorry and this week we will try to use these words every day.

Catholic Schools Week. Monday.

Today we started to celebrate the beginning of Catholic Schools Week. Today’s theme was Living Tradition. Pupils from Junior Infants to 2nd class explored how we belong in our school. We  recalled our favourite Bible stories ..... Zacchaeus and the boy Jesus lost in the temple. We spoke about our favourite prayer and we wrote it out. We then concluded with a prayer. 
The pupils in the senior room explored the theme of dignity and it’s meaning. We prayed for ourselves and our school community and we learnt Pope Francis Five Finger Prayer.

Visit from Bishop Ray Browne.

This morning we were honoured to welcome Bishop Ray Browne to Shrone N.S. It is exactly 16 years since a Bishop visited our school. 

We spoke to him about the themes of Catholic School Week.... Living Traditions, Welcoming Diversity, Grandparents Day, In-service to the Community and Supporting Faith. 

In keeping with tradition we showcased some of our Sliabh Luachra talent. Junior and Senior Infants performed a poem and older pupils performed a three hand reel and a half set. Padraig played the accordion to accompany them. 

We concluded with a little prayer service and a blessing from the Bishop.
