The Scoil Maria Assumpta choir was invited to a special ceremony in Presentation Secondary school on the evening of March 5th. The ceremony was held to mark the tercentenary of Venerable Nano Nagle. The magnificent school theatre was renamed The Nano Nagle Theatre in honour of the founder of the Presentation Congregation. The rededication plagues were unveiled by the former principal, Sr. Sheila and by Micheál Martin T.D.

Ann Dunphy’s wonderful choir performed a beautiful selection of songs for the invited guests.

Our choir director, Aoife O’Donovan, led the children in very sweet renditions of Red is the Rose and The Peace Pilgrim’s Prayer.

Another fantastic choir, St. Stephen’s Episcopal Upper School Madrigal Singers, directed by Kendra Welton-Lipman came all the way from Texas for the event.

Our Fourth and Fifth Class pupils went to the City Hall on March 6th for the official launch of the Cork City Council’s Dog Fouling Awareness Campaign. Congratulations to Aideen Mullins from Fifth Class and to Ploy Pholsak, Alyssa O’Carroll, Emily Walsh and Abigail Dineen from Fourth Class who won prizes in the City Council’s art competition. The girls were thrilled to be presented with 25 euro vouchers for Smyth’s toy shop. All of the children received lovely Responsible Dog Ownership back-packs to take home.

At the beginning of the month, the pre-schoolers were very busy with their preparations for Mothers’ Day. We hope that all of the moms and grannies had a lovely day and we know that they will treasure the delightful gifts that the boys and girls made for them in pre-school.

We are most grateful to the generous ladies of the Crochet Club who made gorgeous clothes and blankets for the little dolls in the Aistear Room. The Junior and Senior Infants cannot wait to dress the ‘babies’ and take them for a stroll in their buggies!
