St. Peter's National School
Today is the 1st of March and it was a beautiful sunny day! We were delighted to welcome back Eugene today!
Today's assembly was all about 'Touch'. Our assemblies have been following the themes of the Stay Safe programme. This weeks theme was 'touch'. Eugene spoke to us all about the positives associated with 'touch' - we can give each other high fives to show support or praise or to congratulate someone, we can give each other a hug to say hello, to cheer someone up or to show we are happy, we might shake hands to welcome someone, to say hello or as a formal handshake. We listened to the bible story Luke 8:43-48. In this story a woman was very sick, she had spent her whole life seeing doctor's and trying to find a cure. One day she saw Jesus in the crowd, she came up behind him and touched the fringe of his cloak. Jesus looked around and asked 'Who touched my cloak?' The woman was worried and came forward, she declared it in front of everyone. Jesus explained, you are cured and your faith has made you well. Eugene's message was clear - our touch can be comforting to others in need of a hug, a high five or some of our time and God's touch can be healing to all.
Junior and Senior Infants were the performers this week. They had been reading the book 'Elmer' in class - Miss Coyle's favourite story. they wrote reports on Elephants and taught us some wonderful facts they had learned. We were all super impressed!

Have a great weekend everyone!
