Happy Wednesday 27th May …a day before the day that should have been….

Twas’ the night before Confirmation, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse……….. Unfortunately, we can’t continue to write the rest of this poem as it may have been adapted, as COVID-19 has called a halt to 6th class special day.

However, Confirmation will take place when the time is right and when it is safe for us to enjoy it. I would like however to take this opportunity to thank 6th class for their commitment and preparation this year. The Grandparents Day sticks in my mind as a milestone, where we caught a glimpse of how talented, musical, confident and creative this class are. On this day, we almost pressed the fast forward button in our minds to imagine how Confirmation Day for the ‘Class of 2020’ would be. We were looking forward to the musicians and singers who were going to shine and to the wonderful art that would be displayed all around the Church.

We wish you all good thoughts and wishes for tomorrow Thurs 28th May. Ms. Hearne has given you the day off work and we hope you take the day to enjoy some time with family and friends and mark the day in your own special way. ‘Don’t count the days, make the days count’ – make tomorrow count !!!!!!

As we are coming into ‘School Tour’ season, I thought early finishers today might like to go on a ‘virtual school tour’ . You will travel abroad on this tour boys and girls but you won’t need your passport and your won’t break any COVID-19 restrictions as you travel from the safety of your own homes.

There are webcams galore and activities aplenty to keep any child on the edge of their seat and entertained for a little while.

Don’t forget if you do some of the activities, feel free to email them to principal@piercestownns.com and we can share them on the blog.

San Diego ZooThe San Diego Zoo has a website just for kids with amazing videos, activities, and games. Enjoy the tour! https://kids.sandiegozoo.org/.

If the zoo is not your thing, why not take a ‘virtual tour’ closer to home by exploring the Titanic Experience in Cobh, Co. Cork https://www.virtualvisittours.com/titanic-experience-cobh/

I know there are quite a few Titanic fanatics in Piercestown N.S. – let us know what you thought of this tour by emailing principal@piercestownns.com

Enjoy the school tours boys and girls. Let me know what you think?!!!!
