Visit of Jennifer Barry!

We were delighted to welcome actress Jennifer Barry to Reenascreena yesterday. Our shared Resource teacher, Fachtna, was Jennifer’s teacher in Kilbrittain in 1st, 2nd and 3rd class.

Jennifer talked about where her love of acting started and encouraged everyone to give it a go! The pupils had a great chat with her – once they got over the shock of seeing a real TV personality in their classroom!

Thanks Jennifer!

Busy week ahead!

We have a busy week ahead before the long weekend – the boys and girls of the Senior Room will compete in Sciath na Scol on Friday May 4th. They will be training hard in advance. All details regarding the day itself are noted in the journals. As a result, it is necessary to change swimming to Thursday for this week. It will be at the usual time.

After the success of Active Schools Week, the pupils have requested that we keep up the Active Homework so from now on, there will be no written homework on a Thursday – we will focus instead on the usual learning in advance of Friday tests and devise a different set of activities each week!
