Our Trip to Russborough House

Our Trip to Russborough House

We went to Russborough House on Wednesday 22nd of March. We arrived at Avon Ri and started walking for 1 hour and 30 minutes. It was a 5km greenway, which Mr. Cassidy told us about.

On Wednesday the 21st of December all of the school gathered in the hall to watch the Fifth Class play and the raffle. Every year we do a raffle but this year was different because the Fifth Class play was before it. The play was called “I AM THE NUMBER ONE”. There was also dancers this year. They were amazing.

Some children took DIFI to visit Santa Claus and others brought him baking in the school kitchen. DIFI helped us put up a Christmas tree and decorations in school and to post our letters to Santa.
