Grandparents Assembly

To celebrate the Year of the Elderly we hosted a Grandparents assembly in the G.P Hall of the Model School on Wednesday 28th of March. All grandparents and parents were invited to attend. During the assembly we sang some hymns and each class group was represented in various ways. The infants brought in photographs of their grandparents and spoke about them. 1st/2nd class wrote an acrostic poem about grandparents and also did a bible reading based on Palm Sunday. 3rd/4th wrote prayers devoted to their grandparents and 5th/6th performed a play about Billy Goats Gruff grand kids. During the assembly we held a collection for Age Action Athy which raised a total of €240. After the assembly those who attended went for tea/coffee and a chat in the staffroom and also had a look around our new school building. Thank you to Rev. Cliff for providing the microphone and indeed to all those who attended on the day.
