It’s all systems go in Presentation Primary School for our Christmas Concert 2018.
The boys and girls put on a fantastic show this morning for the whole school, including our two pre-schools and the pupils of Seoidín.
The pupils are now buzzing with excitement with the thoughts of tomorrow’s evening show for their parents, grandparents and friends. See you there!
It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!!
Well done to the 40 girls who sang so beautifully live on the Tipp FM Christmas Breakfast Show in Stakelum’s Office Supplies on Friday morning. The girls were treated to a fun-filled morning which seemed to kick start the festive season for all present. The girls, led by Ms. Lorna Healy, Mrs. Margaret Healy and on keyboard by Mrs. Mary Everard, sang three songs live on air as Tipp FM talked about some of the most popular toys to appear on Santa’s list for this Christmas.
The girls were each given a very generous bag of treats by Stakelum’s Office Supplies and skipped back to school happy in the knowledge that they had represented their school very well and brought to Christmas spirit to the whole of Tipperary.
The football season came to an end recently with our U11 team competing in a blitz in Dúrlas Óg. The girls were beaten in their first game but recovered well to beat Ayle NS in the second game.
A big thank you to Ms. Ralph and Mr. O’Gorman who kindly trained and coached the girls for the past couple of months. The sporting focus will now switch to basketball and we encourage all the girls to get involved.
Today we celebrated Presentation Day. This day is the feast day of the Presentation of Our Lady and is the day we celebrate being part of the Presentation family.
Sr. Mary Paul kindly spoke to the children about Nano Nagle, founder of the Presentation Congregation, and about the first Presentation Schools,
The children sang two beautiful hymns which remember the work done by Nano Nagle. You can listen to Liam Lawton’s hymn, Who Will Light the Lantern by clicking on this link.
The children were delighted to hear that they had homework off to mark this special day and we hope they will have learned something of our history on this Presentation Day 2018.
