Buddy Reading Returns!
There was great excitement in St. Laurence’s N.S. today when Buddy Reading returned for the first time since February 2020. The children from the Senior Building visited their reading buddies in the Junior Building and read wonderful stories to the children. Some lovely picture books were shared with the children – Maybe by Chris Haughton and There’s a Ghost in this House by Oliver Jeffers. Everyone is looking forward to the next Buddy Reading outing before our Hallowe’en break.
Happy reading everyone!

Maybe by Chris Haughton
Ms Kelly’s Junior Infants read and listened to the wonderful picture book, Maybe by Chris Haughton.
The children really enjoyed the story and even drew their own interpretation of the illustrations afterwards.
The lucky children even had the story read to them again by some of their older reading buddies!
Well done Junior Infants!
We were very lukcy to get Olympic Swimmer Darragh Greene to visit our school recently.
The boys and girls loved listening to his stories about his training, and the Olympics. We thank Darragh for taking the time out to visit our school.
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.
