St. Peter's National School
We have enjoyed another great week here in St. Peter's NS. As always our weekly assembly is a lovely way for the school to come together and celebrate the week gone by.
This week it was Junior and Senior Infant's turn to stand up and show everyone what they had been learning about in class. Although they were a little bit nervous at first, they were absolutely super! 4 weeks into school and they are already superstars!
It was fantastic to see them sing their song, all about our 5 different senses and what they do. We need sight to see the sun, our ears to hear the ding, ding, ding, our touch to cuddle our teddies, taste to enjoy delicious treats and our smell to smell the lovely flowers!
They didn't stop there though - and sang another song As Gaeilge! Everyone did such a fantastic job and they got a big clap from the whole school. They were brilliant!
Junior and Senior Infants weren't the only ones to get up and speak to our assembly for the first time, as today Alison, our new curate, did her first full assembly for us and she was brilliant!
Alison spoke to us all about 'salt'. She explained that salt is used to fix colours into fabric, to make plastic, and to help to turn animal skin into leather for belts and even for sofas! Alison explained that we all have 'salt' in us, that we all have our own unique flavour and therefore we all can be a good influence on those around us and add our own 'flavour' to the world.
It was brilliant to have Alison with us this week and we look forward to many more Friday mornings with her!
Our singing in Assembly is quickly becoming one of the highlights of the school week. This week we all got up on our feet and sang one of our favourite songs 'We Our Marching!' It certainly gave me that Friday feeling!!
Wishing you all a great weekend,
