Student Reactions to the Visit
I learnt that it is ok to be yourself and be unique...... he is really friendly.......and taught us you shouldn't judge a person by their disability.
He was nice and funny......he was relaxed and nice to talk to.
He has travelled around the world.
Even if you have a difficulty .......if you're disabled or have autism..... you can still do great things!

Literacy @ St. Vincent's
To celebrate World Book Day Class Dearbhla went to Eason's Book Store to choose a book of interest to each of us. We then went to see the film 'The Book Thief' based on the novel by the Australian writer Markus Zusak and on return to school we had a drop and read session with the books we bought in Eason's in the school library. It was a very enjoyable day and we would like to say a 'big thank you' to Ms. Reed and Ms. Fitzgerald
We used our €1.50 vouchers to buy books in Eason's.
I bought 'The Boy in the Smoke' by Maureen Johnson. I read some of it already, it is very good and mysterious. ~ Renee.
I bought 'Middle School: How I Got Lost in London' by James Patterson. I have only read the first two chapters yet but it seems good so far. ~ Amber
The book of my choice was also 'Middle School: How I Got Lost in London' by James Patterson. I am enjoying it very much. ~ Nikita
The best part of the day was going to the cinema. It was a lot of fun. We went to see our own private screening of 'The Book Thief' in the Reel Cinema in Blackpool. The movie is about the Jewish people during World War 11.
The film was really good but sad . I would say it is a film worth watching. ~ Amber
The film was very gripping and I would like to read the book as well as watching the film. ~ Nikita
The film was very good but had a sad ending. I would now like to read the book. ~ Renee

The Annual Gingerbread Village proved to be a very popular event again this year. The TY students made the houses in Home Economics classes under the direction of Ms. C. Boyle and Ms. S. Connolly. The kits were sponsored by IKEA this year and for this we express our appreciation. The village was on display in the Social Area and was enjoyed by our own students throughout the day. This year we invited the Senior Infant Classes from the Primary School to see the village and a concert of Christmas carols was enjoyed by all and was led by our First Year Choir conducted by Ms. M. Fitzgerld
