First Holy Communion.
On Saturday 10th May last at the Church of The Assumption, Knockaclarig Fr. Anthony O'Sullivan PP. celebrated First Holy Communion Mass for the six first Holy Communicants in our school. It was a great occasion and a massive congregation thronged the church for the ceremony. Splendidly prepared by teacher Mrs. Nash and ably assisted by our SNA, Helen, the candidates were a credit to their parents, families, community and school. The ecclesiastical artwork which graced the walls of the church, the procession of the gifts,the prayers of the faithful, the choir, the music, the commentary and the reflection prayer showed everybody the amount of work that was invested and added to and enhanced a landmark day in the lives of these children.
Afterwards everybody adjourned to the school where the catering group made up of our parents served up refreshments setting the tone for a convivial and social post script to the morning.

Modern European Artist.
This week, as part of our study of European modern artists, we explored Cubism.We selected Nederland artist Piet Mondrian and perused some of his works.
Later we decided to interpret his ideas and style by completing some paintings of our own in the Piet Mondrian medium.
As we worked onthe pieces we noticed the atmosphere of the strong primary colours

Dress-up Day 2014.
Once again our annual Dress-up Day was a tremendous occasion. All classes entered into the spirit of the day inspired and motivated by Mrs. Nash. Original and creative costumes featuring the most intensive detail were sourced as the participants left no stone unturned in their efforts to portray their selected characters. These characters were sourced from the classics and modern day readers. The presenters were brilliant in their composure, engagement, interactivity, humour and oral delivery.
As part of this important day we integrated the fortnightly visit of The Cork County Mobile Library. Our two librarians entered into the atmosphere of the plots, locations, dilemmas and solutions as with the rest of the audience they tried to unravel the simple and cryptic clues in the identification of the complex characters that were unveiled before them.
