So it's grandparent's day, and majority of the students in Scoil Mhuire's grandparents have turned up! Tea and buns are being eaten in Mr. Shortt's class (a teacher at our school, check 3rd and 4th class page,) by grandparents. 6th class have been working their hardest, at helping to serve the elderly, and say hello to parents that have arrived too. All the classes have been preparing for the day with art pictures and songs. The songs (such as our Shepard is the Lord) were sung in the church mass, in our parish's church. Father Desmond led us in our prayers for our grandparents. The classes also did special pieces of art for grandparents who have passed away. All the art was displayed on the school walls. The various buns and cakes were also shared with the staff and students. Everybody definitely had a great day!
If any art wasn't included in the pictures, we're very sorry, but thank you to all who contributed to make this grandparents day so special.
