A special visitor arrived to Cloonlyon on Friday much to the delight of the pupils of Cloonlyon NS. Santa came laden with goodies and gifts for all. Santa was met with smiles and good spirits .Pupils promised to be in bed early on Christmas Eve as Santa said that Charlestown was one of his first visiting points in the area.
Festive fun and Christmas cheer has embraced Cloonlyon N.S ahead of our Christmas Nativity Play performance.
Second to Sixth Class attended an Arts Workshop facilitated by Tom Meskell in the National Museum of Country Life. This fantastic workshop allowed the children to design and create a 3D star lantern.
Students were also given an educational and entertaining tour of the museum learning about the history of life in rural Ireland from Victorian times.
After the tour and workshop students stopped off at Horkans Garden Center. The students were excited to visit Santa's Reindeer who are enjoying some rest before a busy Christmas guiding Santa's sleigh!
