We celebrated Seachtain na Gaeilge from Monday, March 15th to Friday, March 19th.
A ‘Siúlóid Dúlra’ (Nature Walk) was held in our lovely school grounds.
‘Lá Glas’ (Green Day) was celebrated where children were encouraged to dress in the colours of Lá Fhéile Pádraig – green, white and orange. A virtual parade took place in the Junior building too!
Knowledge was tested in a ‘Tráth na gCeist’ (Table Quiz) and plenty of ‘cluichí teanga’ (language games) were played in the classroom.
Some classes took part in 10@10 as Gaeilge, keeping the children fit and healthy!
A ‘Tóraíocht Taisce’ (Treasure Hunt) was organised for all of the children and St. Patrick himself must have blessed St. Laurence’s with the lovely sunshine for the week of Seachtain na Gaeilge!
Maths week was celebrated this year from Monday October 12th to Friday October 16th where the children had great fun engaging in mathematical activities and games throughout the week, even with the Covid 19 restrictions. The children put great effort into having a very fun week.
Children participated in maths games in their classes, maths stations, answered mathematical puzzles and riddles as well as participated in various outdoor maths trails around the school.
On Friday, all children had to dress up in clothes that had a mathematical theme and there were some very imaginative costumes. A very enjoyable day and week for all!
Tuesday 23rd of June was Graduation Day in St. Laurence's NS.
This isn't the type of Graduation Day that any of us had hoped for or imagined but we hope the 6th class enjoyed everything planned for them.
First of all the boys and girls were invited to come down to school, at their designated time slot, to collect their graduation certificates, a t-shirt and some goodies.
Next a graduation video was uploaded to their Google Classroom at 3pm with memories of St. Laurence's and some messages from their past teachers.
Finally their Graduation mass was live streamed from Sutton Church at 7pm.
We hope all the boys and girls had fun and enjoyed the day.
Massive thanks to all involved in getting this prepared - it was a massive undertaking.
