On behalf of all students, Rebecca Coulter, makes a presentation of thanks to student Shauna from St Angela's College of Home Economics in Sligo for being a great teacher for the past few weeks. Thank you Shauna!!
Student Nurse Agnie gave some of our pupils a lovely course in First Aid. Sadly she is leaving today to return to her studies but before she went, some of the students she tutored gave her a thank you gift and hugs. We are sorry to see her go, she loved the students and they loved her! Best of luck in the future Agnie! Pictured are Ciara McKenna Macken, Leah McDermott and Pauric Duffy making the presentation.
The first pupils to have their beautifully decorated Christmas cakes ready for home were Joshua, Pauric, Ciara and Isobelle.
The next set of cakes were made and decorated by Caolan, Conor, Tomasz, Ciaran and Leah. Each pupil in Oak took home a little photo album showing each stage they went through in making these lovely Christmas cakes for home.
Leah decorated her biscuits in a very spooky fashion and dressed up for the occasion too!
Philip was wary of the spider at first - now they are close friends! Lovely biscuits Philip.
Conor is looking forward to bringing his biscuits home to share while watching the Late Late Show tonight!
Grace looks so cute in her costume and her biscuits look great too!
Nicole finishes our line up of beautiful biscuits and students - well done Nicole!
It was only possible to feature a few pupils but well done to everyone in October for making and decorating their biscuits so nicely!
