On Friday March 16th, everyone in Inver N.S. dressed up, either in Green for St. Patrick’s Weekend or in their favourite character’s costume. We had a busy day from the word go. In the morning, we all participated in a chéile outside. We danced Cur Brog ar an asal, An Staicín Eorna, An Damhsa Mór and Tar Chugam. The sun stayed out for us throughout so we were delighted! After the small break, we had Fred, the magician perform for the whole school. He was wonderful and a lovely treat for all.
Following lunch, we held a wholeschool Tráth na nCeist. It was a busy day but lots of fun!
Many thanks to our volunteers who helped out on Wednesday afternoon with our St. Brigid cross making. We had lots of fun and it is always lovely to have grandparents visit our classroom.
Feast Day 1st February
Poem about the conversion of Gaelic Chieftan from paganism to Christianity
Brigid wove a cross of rushes by a dying chieftain’s bed”
“Brigid what is that you’re making
From the rushes there?”, he said.
Brigid said,”A cross I’m weaving, like the cross where Jesus died.”
“Who was Jesus?” asked the chieftain,
“Why was this man crucified?”
Brigid told the gospel story to a dying pagan King.
Lying silently he listened,
Never saying anything.
Then he kissed the cross of rushes
Saying ,”Brigid, thanks to you,
I have come to love this Jesus,
I will follow his way too!”

Because light takes time to reach us, everything we see is in the past. The sun you can see out of the window is 8 minutes and 20 seconds old. The light from our nearest star, Proxima Centauri, is 4 years old.
Bhí an-spórt againn inniú, ag súgradh leis an sneachta. Thóg cúpla páistí fear sneachta beag sa pháirc.Níor aontaíonn siad ar an tainm. Rinne siad job maith áfach! Cad a cheapann sibh?
An Fear Sneachta
Is fear sneachta mise,
Ní féidir liom siúl
Ba mhaith liom bheith ag imirt peile
Ach níl aon chosa fúm
Is fear sneachta mise
Tá mé breá fuar
Tá súile beaga dubha agam
Agus dath ar nós plúr
Is fear sneachta mise
Is breá liom na páistí
Ach ní maith liom é
Nuair a bhíonn sé ag cur báistí
