Bush Traditional Group and Irish Dancers

The Bush PP traditional music group and Irish dancers recently performed in Dun Dealgan nursing home. They performed a number of jigs, reels and hornpipes and a selection of Christmas carols.

One of the residents also gave a beautiful rendition of 'O Holy Night'. The visit was greatly enjoyed by both the students and elderly residents of the nursing home.




The Christmas Shoe Box Appeal

The first year class 1 Foy participated in the Shoebox Appeal before Christmas. Each student brought in a shoe box which contained toys, small items of clothing such as gloves, scarves and socks, drawing equipment and jelly sweets.

Every year, the Christmas Shoebox Appeal sends thousands of gift-filled shoeboxes to children in Africa and Eastern Europe.

The children who receive the shoeboxes are affected by poverty in different ways. Many come from families with very little income, others live on the margins of society or in areas affected by conflict. Shoeboxes are given based on need alone and bring joy and excitement to children living in often very difficult situations. The class, 1 Foy, were delighted to participate in this project.
