The joy of school is June was evident this week as some classes enjoyed a local school tour. Senior Infants had a wonderful day in Loughtagalla Park with their classmates and teachers. It’s hard to beat a picnic is the sun with your friends!
This week the girls in 6th class enjoyed a visit from Gabrielle Jim who is a Presentation Novice. Gabrielle, who is from China, is based in Portlaoise with the Presentation Order, but has recently been staying in the convent here in Thurles. She spoke to the class about her life journey and her decision to join the Presentation Order.
Ms. Gleeson’s Second Class have been busy preparing for their First Holy Communion. This week we found out that Communion will take place on Thursday, 8th July. To celebrate Fiona Connors generously made each child a communion queen cake for each girl in the class.
