Book Day in Clara NS.

International World Book Day should have been celebrated on Thursday March 1st but due to weather conditions it was postponed until Thursday, 8th in Clara National School. I paid a visit to see how they were celebrating and there was a terrific buzz about the place and pupils in all sorts of fancy dress and all carrying a book. Each pupil had a story book and the reader then had to dress up to represent a character in that book and so we had Star Wars characters, Red Riding Hood, Spidermen and princesses among them. We took some photos to show you the effort and artistic endeavour employed by the children to make it all very exciting, colourful and engaging for the pupils.
There was also another little ceremony taking place and that was the school wishing every success to two of their pupils who were doing the Entrance Exams on Saturday. They are Conor Meehan and Ryan McDaid. They were presented with a Religious Medal each and a candle each and a Prayer Leaflet for success in exams with prayers to St. Anthony and St. Joseph and all joined in saying the prayer. One of the photos below shows the two boys with teachers - Rachel McKenna, Lisa McGuirk, Helen Mohan and Teresa O'Hanlon. We hope they did well.
