Congratulations Communion Class 2017

On May 6th 2017 the 16 pupils of Second Class received their First Holy Communion. Together with their teacher, Tina O' Connell, the school choir and musician John Kinsella, the children participated in a beautiful mass. Every child had a job to do and they were carried out with great precision and excellence. Their fabulous artwork and the beautiful singing were a treat to all who attended. Well done to everyone!
To celebrate further they had a class party and treated the other classes to a fashion show and a song.

Christmas Charity in Second Class

The Second class of 2016/17 are a truly remarkable bunch! They have blown their parents, teacher, principal and the local media away by their display of kindness and charity at such a young age. 
The children collected and decorated pine cones as Christmas decorations for an art lesson but decided they could do more with them. They believed they could decorate enough to sell in school and raise money for charity. when their teacher, Tina O' Connell, asked them who would they like to give the money to they deliberated amongst themselves and decided they would like to give it locally to children their own age. More specifically to sick children, who may have to spend Christmas in hospital - from experience they noted the play room needed attention. 




They raised €330 to buy toys for the Children's Ward in Kerry University Hospital! Representatives from the hospital came to school on Wednesday, 21 Dec, to receive the toys. 
The children received a certificate of appreciation for their "very generous contribution to children's playime" and for "the excellent fundraising work undertaken by Rang 2 St. Teresa's National School, Kilflynn to purchase toys for Cashel Ward, University Hospical Kerry in December 2016".

Choir

The after school choir meet every Wednesday with Mrs. Tina O' Connell to rehearse for any upcoming mass or school event and to learn new songs. They put in many extra hours to prepare for a special Christmas performance in the Palliative Care Unit in Kerry University Hospital. They included in their set Christmas Carols old and new, traditional music, Irish dancing, Christmas recitation and (as seen on the Toy Show) Wagon Wheel. It was a fabulous, emotional and special day. The patients attending the unit, family members and staff thoroughly enjoyed the children's performance. The children enjoyed performing and spreading Christmas cheer in the unit. Santa even made an appearance with a treat for all the children!!
