A message from Fr Louis and PadraigĂ­n to our First Communion children http://ourladyoflourdesns.ie/2020/05/15/a-message-from-fr-louis-and-padraigin-to-our-first-communion-children/ Fri, 15 May 2020 12:52:49 +0000 http://ourladyoflourdesns.ie/?p=4616 Continue Reading]]>



Hello Girls and Boys!

This is PádraigĂ­n here.  Remember I was helping you prepare for First Holy Communion with Ms O’Dwyer and Mr McCarthy.  You coloured lovely pictures and said special prayers for our preparation masses.  Myself and Fr. Louis and all the people of the Parish of St Michael’s were really looking forward to your First Holy Communion Day in St Michael’s Church this coming Saturday, May 16th. We know you were all looking forward to it  too.

Like you, we are disappointed that it will not now be going ahead this weekend.   But do not worry because as soon as we are all allowed to come together and pray together again we will celebrate your First Holy Communion with you and your families  at St Michael’s church.   In the meantime take care and remember to say your prayers to Holy God at home,  to mind you, and your families and friends and all the people and animals  you love.  We will be in touch again soon with some fun things you might like to do as you wait for your Communion Day.  

                                       God Bless you all,  from  PádraigĂ­n and Fr Louis.

Before school closed we were working on our Transition Programme; preparation for

Secondary School. We are going to try and continue this work online.

We will start with a recap of what we have done in school so far.

I will post a new lesson every week (Thursdays).

It is SO important that you read over and complete this work, so you can be as best prepared for secondary school as possible, it will make the move at least a little easier!!

You can send work to me or ask me questions to brenda.mckenna@scp.ie

I am also posting on Mr.Weir’s google classroom each week.

Active Homes Week http://ourladyoflourdesns.ie/2020/05/04/active-homes-week/ Mon, 04 May 2020 17:03:44 +0000 http://ourladyoflourdesns.ie/?p=4552 Continue Reading]]> Normally around this time of year we’d have Active Schools Week but this year it might be a nice idea for you to try Active Homes Week. It’s really hard to keep active when we are encouraged to stay home during this time but here are a selection of ideas and activities you can try at home. Children are recommended to get 1 hour of physical activity daily. Why don’t you try to set yourself the challenge of being active for one hour every day this week?

You could go for a walk, run, cycle, gonoodle dance, play a sport/game with your family, follow a YouTube workout video, cosmic kids yoga. Anything that gets your heart beating! If you are outside, make sure you’re following guidelines about social distancing and staying within the 5km from your home.

Here’s some helpful websites to check:
