Wednesday 25th of January marked a special day in the calendar of Caim NS as we welcomed our Grandparents for Grandparents’ Day. Part of Catholic Schools Week, we began our day with Mass in Caim Church with Fr. Byrne and then came back to school where tea and treats were served to our grandparents and parents. It was lovely to see so many in attendance and the children loved showing their grannys and grandads all around their school and classrooms.

5th and 6th class were busy organising interviews for the grandparents about life in their past and we were delighted to have so many volunteers! We were shocked at some of their stories about school when they were young but loved hearing about their hobbies and families. A big thank you to everyone who donated artefacts for the day for our Artefacts Tables in the foyer and the hall, they were many great reflections from our grandparents about some of the objects we had!

Thank you everyone and see you again next year!

We would like to wish our two teams the very best of luck in the upcoming Credit Union Quiz which takes place this Sunday, 29th January. They have been busy brushing up on their general knowledge in the comfortable surrounds of our sensory room.

We are celebrating Catholic schools week from the 22nd – 29th January. The theme this year is ‘Walking together in faith and love’

On Wednesday, we will go to Mass and celebrate our Grandparents. We give thanks for all the love they give us.

Sixth class received a pleasant surprise on Monday 23rd January when their delivery of beautiful half zips arrived. The class designed the tops themselves and they are delighted how they turned out.
