Zumba is so much fun with Tara in St Michael's hall, we love the music and the dance moves. We are keeping fit and having fun at the same time.
October was a really busy and fast. We were learning about Halloween and its origin. Isobel moved to a new class so we all went to Dinkins as a farewell treat. We spent lots of time making the classroom look scary. In music therapy we learned some relaxation techniques. We started zumba with Tara . We did a link with our lady’s Castleblaney and St.Brigids in Dundalk . we got to the final of GAA , we all got medals . we all dressed up for Halloween ,we all had to guess who Andrea was, she was Wednesday Adams .
The name of our short course is 'Caring for Animals, we brought an abandoned kitten to our classroom for the day. We had to feed her using a syringe every hour, we loved having her and all the children came to visit her. We brought her outside for some fresh air. The next day we did a survey throughout the school to name the kitten, we collected everybody's favorite name and the winning name was Daisy. Daisy went home to a new home with Breda from the Junior schoool she will bring Daisy back to visit us in a few months.
In September we opened a friendship cafe of one day only. We advertised it, made some menus, invited all the staff and pupils in the school to attend. We worked so hard making treats and drinks to serve on the day. As it was Childhood cancer awareness month we decided to give the money raised to AIobheann's pink tie.
