Sunday 7th January

The Three Wise Men, or Kings, or Magi, arrive to pay homage to the baby Jesus bringing their gifts of Gold Francincense and Myrrh.

We were also told that the prayers and intentions written on the stars on our Christmas Prayer Tree would be taken to Lourdes next week.

The children gathered around the the crib at the end of the service to get a better view, to be blessed, and to wish everyone a Happy New Year.

The Christmas Crib

Monday 25th December
Christmas Day

Today we celebrate the birth of Christ. The fifth Advent candle, which is lit at Christmas, stands for the light of Christ. Father Michael Keogh asked the children to bring their Christmas presents to be blessed and after the Mass the children gathered round the crib to get a better view of it.

Sunday 24th December

Fourth Sunday of Advent and Christmas Eve. At the Sunday morning Mass the fourth Advent candle was lit, one having been lit on the previous three Sundays. The final candle will be lit at the Chrstmas Mass

Children may like to try lighting the white candle by pointing to it with the mouse or touching it if you have a touch sensitive screen

Don't touch real candles though !

Beetle Drive score card

Monday 8th May
Beetle Drive

A very enjoyable evening started off with a Steak Pie and Mushy Pea supper followed by a Beetle Drive. Each player throws a dice until they get a six when they draw the Beetle's body on their score card. In each subsequent throw that competitor tries to throw a number equivalent to the body part on the card e.g. a five will allow you to draw a head and a 2 will allow you to draw a leg. A 1 will allow you to draw an eye but only if you have already drawn a head during a previous turn. The game finishes when someone in the room has completed the drawing and shouts out "BEETLE". Everyone counts up all their scores so far and then a new game is started. When all the games on the card are completed it is the person with the highest total score that wins. Fortunately for me, no points are awarded for artistic merit. Any money raised by this event will go to the School funds.
