Dear Junior Infants 2020,
We are really looking forward to welcoming you to St Gabriel’s N.S.
We made a short welcome video for you to look at and hope to see you in August to show you your new classroom and all of our exciting toys and activities.
We hope you have a lovely summer!
Ms Comerford and all of the staff of St Gabriel’s N.S.
Hello girls and boys in Junior Infants,
Well done for reaching the end of the school year. I am so proud of you all. You have all been so busy and active during the last few months. I have been amazed to hear about and see all the fantastic things you have been getting up to at home. You have all been keeping safe, remembering to wash your hands and have been behaving so well for your families. I really loved being your teacher. We worked hard and had lots of fun in Junior Infants. I have missed seeing you all in school but I’m already looking forward to seeing you in St. Gabriel’s in September. There are lots of fun times ahead for us when we return to school. Thanks so much to your parents for all your cooperation since September.
I hope you all have a wonderful summer break.
See you all in September,
From Ms. Leonard. x
P.S. Here’s a recording of the song that Junior Infants were due to perform at assembly for you all before the schools closed in March. Perhaps your child can perform for you at home to finish up the school year! Click here for The Mountain Song.
These are some of the songs from the First Holy Communion ceremony that you had been practising in school before the lockdown. Please try to listen and sing along to these at least once a day until the day of your Communion. You will find the words to the songs in the Communion booklets that were in your school pack.
1. This is the Day
2. My Shepherd is the Lord
3. I am the Bread
4. We come to you Lord Jesus
5. Go Now in Peace
