I hope that your holiday was restful and that your second term is off to a flying start. The next activity will be this Friday April 22nd, it’s a show and tell day.
I have heard that a few of the children have already been preparing short dramatic / musical performances. There will be a keyboard set up if anyone needs it. The aim is to give each child an opportunity to experience speaking or performing in public, in a safe, friendly environment. Should be fun!
God bless, Christina

This Friday will be the last activity day at the hall for this year. Please bring a festive dish to share and don’t forget your rosary beads! For our last activity of 2015, this Friday we are continuing the noble tradition of Las Posadas. Thérèse has also organised for a piñata and as she writes below, we’re asking for your help to prepare for this wonderful celebration.
As we reach the end of another year, may I just thank everyone who has helped along the way to make a success of our special group. Another big ‘thanks’ goes to all the mums who have gone out of their way to run or organise an activity and share their talents. Finally thankyou to all the lovely families who have attended our group, especially those who have travelled from far and wide to join us.
God Bless, see you next year.

Thanks to Pat for visiting our group last fortnight, and Stephanie for organising the day.
This Friday, Sam will be running an introductory lesson in singing Gregorian Chant. To participate, children need to be able to read (words) confidently (e.g. be able to sing following the words on a hymn sheet at mass) and be prepared to sound out some Latin. No previous musical training required and any interested parents are welcome to join. Kelly has a little song and activity organised for the little ones.
Looking forward to seeing you there.

I hope your Easter was joyful, abundant and prayerful.
For our last activity of Term I we focused on two noble traditions, to great effect: Our Stations of the Cross were quite moving I thought and the St Brigid’s Crosses were beautiful, so well done everybody!
Next Friday, that’s Friday 2nd May, please BYO game. You’ll probably have to teach others how to play your game and we look forward to learning more about you by the way you share what excites you with others!
We’ll emphasise inclusion, cooperation and sharing – learning by teaching and learning from others through play. I think it will be very engaging.
I hope you can make it
