Prizes for O’Keeffe’s Spar colouring competition awaiting collection by the very lucky pupils…
This year we wrote Christmas cards to the elderly in Clarecastle Daycare Centre, Cahercalla Day Care Centre, Cuan an Chlair , the Alzimers Society and St Josephs Hospital. We wrote these letters to lighten up their Christmas and moods. We put a lot of thought, time and effort in to these cards. The pupils in 6th class wrote letters to folks in Clarecastle day care centre. Everyone was assigned a person in the day care centre to write to. Some people added things like scratch cards, crosswords, paintings, books, artwork etc . Everyone wrote a card and a letter which was approximately a page long. These cards are now delivered to the various daycare centres in Ennis. They will be quarantined for a number of days before they are delivered to the old folks. We really hope these cards will make their Christmas a little bit better, because this year has been very difficult for everybody especially our elderly.
