On June 8th 2018 a very special ceremony was held in the Goldie Chapel at Nano Nagle Place. Nano Nagle founded the Presentation Order in the eighteenth century and she was also instrumental in inviting the Ursuline Sisters to Ireland. In 1761 Nano began writing to a young Dublin woman named Eleanor Fitzsimons who was a member of the Ursuline Order in Paris. The two women became friends and worked to establish a new Ursuline foundation in Cork. On June 8th seven of the historic letters written from Nano to Eleanor were gifted by the Ursuline Sisters to the Presentation Congregation.

Hien, Ashling, Emmie, Niamh, Emily, Shauna and Erin from Fifth Class were asked to participate in the ceremonial procession carrying Nano’s treasured letters to the altar. The girls were joined by pupils from Scoil Ursula, Blackrock while students from St. Angela’s Secondary School played the beautiful music of Pachelbel’s Canon. Girls and boys from Bun Scoil Chríost Rí, Turners Cross also sang during the ceremony.

We wish to congratulate the Presentation and Ursuline Sisters for organising this beautiful celebration and we would like to thank Sr. Elizabeth Bradley OSU who worked with our pupils in preparation for the event.

Our Active Schools Week was a great success. Miss Ashley Lovett and her Fifth Class girls organised a fantastic selection of sporting activities for their school mates. All classes were kept busy for the week taking part in tug-o-war games, running races and negotiating obstacle courses.

On Wednesday the Parents’ Association organised a Fun Day where the teachers had to compete with the pupils. The children thoroughly enjoyed taking penalty shoot-outs against the principal but they especially loved getting to throw buckets of water  over their teachers!

Our pupils were given the opportunity to showcase their impressive musical talents when they performed in a lovely concert for their parents on June 12th. The children entertained the audience by singing and by playing a variety of instruments including the recorder, the flute, the clarinet, the saxophone and the oboe. Well done to our music teachers, Aoife and Oisín, who have worked so hard with the children throughout the year. Maith sibh go léir!
