Olivia in P.3 sent us a photo of her delicious lemon cake and this wonderful message.....she is missing school so much and hopes everyone is well.  She wanted to show off her baking, which she found much easier after learning about measurements in her school work 😊 The lemon cake recipe 🍰 was one that was shared on the school Facebook page. 

A great big thank you to Lily in P.2 for sending us lots of photos of fun things her and her little sister Darcy have been getting up to.

Many thanks to Jenson, Alex & Logan for sending some pictures of them out on their bikes. The boys cycled along the tow path the whole way to just before Newry. They couldn’t believe it when they met Miss McCarthy, who was out for a run! They had a few stops along the way for snacks and then an ice-cream stop in Poyntzpass on the way home. Altogether they cycled around 20 miles!!! Amazing boys, I’d say you’ll all sleep tonight 🚴🏻‍β™‚οΈπŸš΄πŸΌπŸš΄πŸ»‍♂️

Many thanks to Frankie’s mum for sending in these great photos of Frankie and his little brother Ronan hard at work. She does however want to know if there is any word of school opening as according to Frankie she is not a very good teacher and he is missing Mrs Power!

Just a little note to ALL are doing an amazing job and we are so thankful for everything you are doing during these unprecedented times! Keep it matter now much or how little you are doing, every little helps! 😊
