A final farewell to Shannaghmore! What a fabulous 3 days and what a great group of children...and instructors! So much fun and life experiences had by all.

Day 3...after another great nights sleep, the children were ready for their final morning of activities. We were bouldering and on the low and high ropes course! Again some of the children were able to overcome their fears! We are all so proud of your effort and attitude!

Day 2 at Shannaghmore. After a good nights sleep we are all set for today’s activities, high and low ropes course and canoeing! We are all have a great time overcoming some of our fears,

We are all having fun at Shannaghmore! Yesterday some children tackled the bouldering and the other children were scrambling up the rocks! All children put in so much effort and amazed themselves at what they were capable of. Well done!!

Today we celebrated World Book Day - 16th March, due to adverse weather conditions on the 1st March. The children enjoyed dressing up as their favourite charater and telling their class friends why they were their favourite. We also enjoyed a story telling session from Janet Compton from the EA Library. P5 and P6 learnt that picture books are for all ages!!

World Book Day will now be celebrated on Friday 16th March. Please dress as your favourite character and bring your book with you.

Please remember we are off school on Monday 19th March for St. Patrick's Day. Children also go home early on Thursday 22nd March at 12.30pm and school finishes on Friday 23rd March at 12.30pm for the Easter holidays.smiley
