Firoda National School
On April 17th. seven pupils from Firoda N.S. received their First Holy Communion in the Church of the Immaculate Conception Castlecomer. The happy recipients were Alex, Eoin and Dylan Brennan, Jamie Cahalan, Leo Hogan, Caroline Coughlan and Caitlin Meagher. Congratulations and well done to all. The sun was shining, everyone was happy and had a wonderful day. The Firoda children were joined by two girls from Castlecomer Convent and thirteen boys from the Boy’s School for this very special occasion.
What about a new feature on our website – “Smile of the Week”. The pupils enjoyed a demonstration of “The history of ancient musical instruments” recently where our visitor got music from shells, holes in stones, sticks, animal horns and much more. Such was the delight on some of the faces that we are considering a new feature. This week features Liam Lacey with what has to be the first “Smile of the Week!!
6th. Class students receiving their Pioneer Pins and certificates at the end of the year.
Mrs. Margaret McGrath and Fr. Campion present the latest group of pioneers with their pins and certificates at a ceremony in the school before the summer holidays. It is heartening to see our students so aware of the dangers of alcohol to their health and well being. We wish them the best as they leave school and head to new pastures.
