Today, the 4 and 5M pupils were treated to a morning out at the cinema, Kinoteka, to watch, on the big screen, a montage of 4M’s previous animating exploits, and an animated feature film. The pupils were welcomed by the staff at Kinoteka, and then the host, Vitja Dominkus Dreu, gave some commentary and insight into the pupils own animations. This was followed by an introduction to the Irish animated feature entitled The Secret of Kells. The fim is a fictionalised account of the history of creation of The Book of Kells – an illuminated manuel gospel book – during the viking raids in the middle ages.
Today, The Final Event, as the name suggests, brought a close to normal lessons for the school year and allowed each year to perform a finale befitting their own experiences and feelings. Following this, the Garden Party got under way in the green playground, where it was a hard task to stay dry amongst the watery mayhem. The wet slide, bouncy castle, sack race, tug o’ war, and a host of other shenanigans were many ways in which to enjoy the very hot first day of summer.
Today, the kindergarten students enjoyed themselves at Laguna swimming complex. They went by foot, as the weather was still mild in the morning. There they swam, played in the water and the playground and had an ice cream treat at the end. A lot of fun was had, and they all want to go there again.
