Published

Class Concerts: All classes have been working very hard over the last few weeks in preparation for the annual Christmas Concerts. They will perform for each other and for their families on the week of the holidays. Many thanks to parents/families for helping out with the costumes!

Stamps: As usual, at this time of year particularly with all the Christmas Cards and New Year cards arriving in the post, we ask people to hold on to the used stamps and send them into Mr. McSweeney’s 5th/6th Class. Please ensure that some of the envelope is left around the stamp. We collect used stamps on a weekly basis in the school and deliver them to the ISPCC, who use them to raise funds for their worthy cause.

Cathedral Evening Prayer Services for Advent: Five of our pupils from Mr Fleming’s & Mr. McSweeney’s Rang a Sé have been taking part in these prayer services during the Sundays of Advent. They are Andrew Mulcahy, Luke Mulcahy, Donnchadh Leahy, Shane Downey & Finn Cronin. .A very special word of thanks to Sr. Emmanuel for preparing them.

School Choir: Pupils from 4th, 5th & 6th classes performed at concerts in the lead up to Christmas—The Cobh Lions Club Christmas Concert at the Heritage Centre on Tuesday 11th and at Cobh Community Centre on Thursday 13th December. They were very well prepared by Ms. Fitzgerald, Ms. Murphy, Mr. O’Loingsigh, Ms. Donovan & Mr. O’Donovan.

Christmas Raffle: Please support our raffle this year which will be held before the Christmas Holidays.

Carol Service: Our annual in-school Carol Service will take place in the school hall during the last week before Christmas.

Annual Christmas Competitions: All the pupils in the school have a chance to take part in various Christmas competitions suitable to their class groupings. There is always great excitement wondering who will receive the different prizes! It is also very difficult for the ‘judges’ to select the winners. The results of the competition will be on display in the school on the two weeks up to Christmas.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish all those associated with the school a happy and holy Christmas. Beannachtaí na Nollag agus na hAthbhliana oraibh go léir!

The cheque of €500 was presented to St. Vincent de Paul on Tuesday evening at the Community Centre. It was part of the proceeds from the Centre’s ‘Christmas Variety Concert’. John Coleman, Chairman of the Cobh Community Centre, thanked all the groups that performed at the concert last December, including nearby colleges St. Mary’s National School, Bunscoil Rinn an Chabhlaigh and Scoil Iosaef. Members of the Fundraising Committee – Manager, Gwen O’Halloran, Majella Smith, Martin O’Leary and Catherine Jefferson – also expressed their appreciation for the spirited and uplifting performances that were given last December by the Children’s Theatre, the Cope Foundation Day Unit, Pop & Rock and the Carrigtwohill Gospel Choir. Thanking the Cobh Community Centre, Liz O’Driscoll and Aine O’Regan from St. Vincent de Paul said, “Our charity receives much focus around Christmas time, which is a great thing, but our work is ongoing, year-round. Therefore, donations at this time of year are especially important to us.”

The Chairman used the presentation of the cheque to St. Vincent de Paul to announce ambitious plans to increase the usage of the Centre’s many and varied facilities. John noted, “Cobh Community Centre has great potential for hosting a variety of both community and commercial activities as well as training sessions. We offer convenience plus first-class facilities. That’s a package that’s hard to top! We are also constantly expanding and upgrading our classes and events. So, there is something here for everyone in the Cobh community…the Centre literally does what it says on the tin!”
