On Friday the 7th of May we celebrated Intercultural Day in St. Laurence’s National School. The children and teachers dressed to represent their cultural background.
Some classes enjoyed a world music dance party, other classes paraded around the school waving the flag of their country, whilst some classes made food associated with different countries!
The Junior Infant classes were busy learning some songs in different languages. We learned about inclusivity and embracing difference.
We are all so proud of the diversity in our school! Well done to everyone for their wonderful efforts.
On Wednesday May 4th, Ms O’Callaghan’s 3rd class and Ms Faughnan’s 3rd class both welcomed Irish author, Natasha Mac a’Bháird to St. Laurence’s N.S.
Both classes enjoyed a very entertaining and enlightening morning with Natasha. The children were very curious to learn about the life of an author and there were plenty of interesting questions for Natasha in both classes!
Natasha read from her novel Shay Given (Great Irish Sports Stars) and she showed the children some video clips of our former Irish goalkeeper in action.
In preparation for the visit, the children from 3rd class wrote a piece about their own favourite Irish Sports Star and shared this with Natasha.
For more information on Natasha Mac a’Bháird, please visit the O’Brien Press website at www.obrien.ie or visit our local library in Baldoyle.
