On Friday afternoons all pupils and staff congregate in the school hall for ‘Teacht le Chéile’. Each week a different teacher leads the children in prayer, announces upcoming events, presents ‘Birthday’ and ‘Star of the Week’ certificates. Pupils who represent the school in sports, quizzes etc. are acknowledged. The ‘Stars of the Week’ have their photograph taken and displayed. One class then entertains the assembly through music, song, dance or poetry. Line of the week is also chosen and rewarded. The children look forward to this with enthusiasm and we feel it provides a wonderful opportunity to enhance their self-esteem and confidence.
