St Peter’s Post #23


Welcome to another edition of our online weekly newsletter – the St Peter’s Post! This week, we’ve been looking forward to the next few weeks – 2nd and 6th class are preparing for Communion and Confirmation and we’ve started recruiting for the choir for the Communion ceremony. We were also very busy on Twitter this week!

The main headlines from this week are:

  • We were sent the video marking our win at the Junior Spiders from the organisers during the week. If you haven’t seen it yet, we’d love you to watch it here.
  • Our new student council had their first meeting this week. Check it out here.
  • 2nd class have been busy preparing for their First Holy Communion this week. They made recordings of their prayers to help them practise. You can find them here and here.
  • 4th class recorded their Irish story ‘Mamó’ and described the process of recording it here.
  • Well done to Adam and Nathan O’B from Ms Mitchell’s class. Adam’s work was chosen as ‘Work of the Week’ this week and Nathan was student of the week. Keep up the great work!
  • Over the weekend, nine of our 5th and 6th class students took part in the Leinster finals of Mathletes (expect a post early on Monday morning) the boys were fantastic representatives of the school and we were really proud of them! Well done to them and thanks to all the families for coming along to support them – read the post about the preparations here.
  • Our ‘Wednesday for Parents’ this week focused on feeling good for Summer – you can read all about it here.
