A Lovely Lamb Visits our School!

Mrs Meehan had a little lamb, it’s fleece was white as snow and everywhere that teacher went the lamb was sure to go!

It came with her to school one day, it was against the rules.

It made the children laugh and play to see a lamb at school.

Today we were learning all about Spring with real life creatures and items.

Thanks so much to Mrs Meehan for bringing such excitement to the school!

Happy Easter from St Eunan's!
We have such a fun morning making Easter wreaths and on our socially distanced Easter Egg Hunt. Pictured are some of our prize winners. Special thanks to Jody for organising this. The smiles tell their own story!! 
The school got an Easter egg for each child - the Infants were very excited when one of the teachers spotted the Easter Bunny in our sensory garden!!!
A total of €300 was raised for Down Syndrome Ireland so thanks to everyone for your kind donations.
Wishing you all a very safe and enjoyable Easter break.

Oh What Fun We Had Today!
World Down Syndrome Day took place last Sunday the 21st March. This holds a special place in our hearts as we remember a past pupil, who was taken from us far too soon. In her honour today the children wore their own clothes and odd socks and brought in generous donations. We don't have a final count yet as more money is still to come in tomorrow. Thanks to everyone for your donations. #downsyndrome
As if a no uniform day wasn't enough 3rd and 4th Class also enjoyed a pizza party! Liam in 4th Class won the Supermacs Halloween Colouring Competition and his whole class got to enjoy some yummy pizza!

As you can see from our video our children were really busy making St Bridget's crosses. Normally our grandparents come into the school to show the children the tricks of the trade. However we had to trade this for Zoom calls this year! We absolutely love the variety of crosses made. Well done boys and girls. We hope you had fun!

Supermacs and a Movie!!
Each year, the children go on a cinema trip as a Christmas treat. Unfortunately, this year we are unable to do this so we thought we’d bring the cinema to our school. Today was movie day and each class watched a film of their choice.
As well as this, the Parent's Association very kindly arranged for each child to get a Supermacs meal in school. The happy faces speak for themselves!! Thanks so much for our wonderful Parent's Association.

Our Elf Harry
Harry the Elf has arrived in First and Second class. He appeared in a glass jar and left a note to say he was in quarantine. Yesterday he made a dramatic escape from quarantine on a tight rope and surprised the class after lunch break! He has already messed up the storeroom but was captured by our art snowmen! He has informed us that he will be reporting back to Santa every day!!

Look at our animations!

The children loved their Zoom workshop with animator John D Ruddy. He presented key topics such as the 1916 Rising and the War of Independence in an entertaining animated form.

The children then sketched a scene from the Irish Civil War playing close attention to detail such as they type of clothes the soldiers wore (imagine wearing 3 piece suit!), their ammunition.
I think they turned out really well.

Thanks John we really enjoyed your inspirational workshop!
More of his animated history videos are available on https://johndruddy.com/videos-2/

Children in 5th and 6th Class are very lucky to be taking part in the “Echoes of the Decade” history project which examines life in Donegal from 1913 until 1923; a decade of huge change.
