Grandparents Day 2017

On the 7th of December we celebrated Grandparents Day in our school.  We began our preparations in the classrooms, with the children preparing wonderful projects all about their Grandparents, we displayed these fabulous projects in the halla for all to see.  The children along with their teachers also prepared music, readings and prayers of the faithful for a special mass, celebrated in Canovee church at 10.00am by Canon Bernard O’ Donovan.

After mass children and their grandparents returned to the school where volunteers from the Parents Association provided refreshments for everyone.  While everyone sat and enjoyed their cuppa, chat and biscuit, the children in Mrs O Brien’s classroom treated everyone to a beautiful rendition of the Bruno Mars song, ‘You can count on me’.
