Lions Club of Ireland visit to Holy Family School
We were delighted to welcome our good friends, Lions Frank O Donoghue and Werner Schwerberg and other important Lions from other clubs such as;
Athy Lions Club,
Bray Lions Club,
Castleknock Lions Club,
Dublin Lions Club,
Dun Laoghuire Lions Club,
Howth Sutton Lions Club,
Carrick an Suir Lions Club.
All the Lions arrived at the Holy Family Primary School this morning on our school bus with our friendly bus driver Joey Watson. They were greeted by the children who were lined up in a guard of honor where the children presented Frank O Donoghue with a beautiful handmade Thank You Card. The children and conductor Shirley Higgins then impressed the Lions by performing three songs ‘A Million Dreams’, ‘You got a friend in me’ and ‘True Colours’.
The Lions were so impressed and they really enjoyed their performance.
The Lions then got to visit the classrooms and display of work where they got to see our new visualisers in action. These visualisers are a valuable resource to have in the classroom, they ensure that the teacher is facing the students at all times and that the student can see the teacher signing or lipread the teacher. We then went back up to the post primary school where all the lions were greeted by John Canning and Aideen Lynch.
Aideen and 4A class then showed the Lions how they used digital technology for their ‘Science & Me’ project which was the winning video in the ‘ReelLife Science Competition’. 4A used an ipad to create their video and they showed the screening of their winning video to the Lions.
Next the Lions visited Maggie Owens classroom where they got to see the new Chrome Books in action by playing a fun interactive kahoot quiz with class 2A students – the Lions V’s the Students! Our students came out top on the podium!!
We then visited the woodwork room where we got to see a special and beautiful wooden rocking horse which was created by our students and their woodwork teacher.
Finally we went to the reception area where we unveiled two photos of the Holy Family School sports bibs that the Lions have sponsored for our school. Overall, an exciting and special day. We loved that Frank and Werner and the Lions feels a part of our wonderful school.
