Halloween Fun In Donacarney GNS.
We are filled with a great sense of achievement after completing our first half term safely in school. A big thank you to the parents and children who took all our new rules and routines on board and persevered through difficult times to ensure the safe functioning of the school for the whole community. The BOM, teachers, special needs assistants, secretary and cleaning staff are to be commended for their tireless work in getting the school open again safely and maintaining very high standards throughout the half term. Go raibh mile maith agaibh go léir. We are blessed with a very committed school community.
Following a challenging and restricted eight weeks in school, the staff and pupils were delighted to get a break from the normal routine and dress up in their Halloween costumes on Friday. There was an air of excitement and joy as princesses, witches, skeletons and various scary and not so scary characters arrived in splendid colour through the school gates.
There was an outdoor fashion parade for the senior classes with teachers making a super effort on the catwalk, lifting the spirits of the whole school as shouts of joy were heard from the yard in appreciation of all the outfits. The sun shone brightly and everyone made sure they kept their distance in their bubbles.
Some classes played traditional games and some even managed “safe trick or treating”. Online Halloween games were a great success in many classes and there were treats “go leor!” The children and staff went home feeling happy and carefree. We look forward to another six weeks in school and we ask for God’s protection on staff, children and parents from all illness and harm.
Wonderful Halloween Art
