The final few weeks of term have been busy ones here at the Prep School as classes prepare for Christmas. There has been plenty of artistic activity as the boys have worked on their Christmas masterpieces. The 6th Class boys helped the Junior and Senior Infants make Christmas cards during a craft session under the expert guidance of Alec’s Mum and granny, Tanya and Trudy. The senior classes enjoyed an active afternoon at Cork on Ice, all classes performed beautifully at the Christmas concert (along with the newly formed “Prep School Band”), the Senior classes completed their Christmas tests, we enjoyed a trip to the cinema to see “Nativity Rocks” and the Junior classes ended the term with a visit to AIB Bank at 66 South Mall to perform Christmas carols for staff and customers. We also welcomed Fr. Tom to the school for the last school mass of 2018. All of the students (and teachers) are looking forward to a well deserved Christmas break before returning in January ready for the new term ahead! A sincere thanks to all the Preparatory School Parents for all your support and help during 2018. Special thanks for your very generous donations in our recent charitable activities. Every blessing for Christmas 2018 and New Year 2019.
