The pupils of 5th and 6th class celebrated St Brigid's Day by making the traditional crosses and learning about some customs and traditions that go with it.
While working on the crosses, some of the pupils were discussing how it would be nice to make crosses for people in the community who had nobody to make one for them. With that, we spent a large part of the day collecting rushes and making crosses before leaving them in Pat Russel's shop to be handed out to his customers.
It was a lovely gesture and a small way for the children to give a little back to their community. We hope this can be something we make an annual event.
After all, with a new bank holiday in her honour, we need to remember St Brigid more then ever!
The teachers in our school will regularly post new blog posts keeping you up to date with all that is happening in Scoil Teampall Toinne.
