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.
On Wednesday 4th March the boys and girls got an opportunity to go to a performance or a workshop by the CBBC Ridiculous Rhyme Show hosts. This was greatly enjoyed by all.

Our school celebrated science week from Monday 10th February to Friday 14th February and a very enjoyable week was had by all!
Every daya science riddle was called out over the intercom with students competing with each other to be first in their class with an answer. On Friday we held a table quiz over the intercom.
The teachers carried out various experiments in their classrooms during the course of the week much to the enjoyment of the children. On Friday in the senior building, classes moved around to different classrooms to see different experiments carried out by different teachers while in the junior building, there was a display of various experiments in the hall for all classes. Predictions were made, questions were asked and results were achieved!
All week there was a CSI forensic workshop for both buildings. Children had to find clues, examine footprints and fingerprints to find the culprit!
On Friday afternoon many classes watched a science movie or played interactive science games, a lovely end to a great week!
