LOOK AT OUR WORK
The Official Opening of the new Library in Draperstown
We went to the official opening of the new library in Draperstown. Six pupils from Primary 7 (and our school Ted) went down with Ms Coyle and Mrs Devlin to play some traditional music to entertain everyone. Many people said to us that we did really well, Ms Coyle told us we were exceptional and she was very proud of us!
We introduced the pieces of music, some of which were written a long time ago in our locality and played the harps, tin whistles, violins, guitars and a bodhran.
St. Mary’s has had a very important role in this library. When the old library was in danger of closing, it was our school who made history by presenting the case to the ministers in Stormont. A photograph of this momentous occasion is to be displayed in the new library, so look out for our pupils and past pupils.
Our afternoon ended with some lunch with the special invited guests. We took some photos with Ted’s camera and met a lot of very important people, including Michael Mc Allister who is John’s dad and the chairperson of workspace; Brian Mc Guigan who is Caoimhe’s uncle, Catherine Elatter, the chairperson of the Magherafelt & District Council and of course we listened to the speeches from the librarians and the minister of agriculture and rural development, Michelle O Neill.
We had a great day at the new library and hopefully it will stay there for a long time. We intend to visit regularly to make sure we make the most of this fantastic, modern free service.
We are very fortunate to have well established red currant and blackcurrant bushes in the garden. Each year we ensure the grass is removed from the roots and we watch carefully to make sure the birds don't carry them all away.
Mrs Higgins very kindly harvested this year's crop for us during the Summer holidays. We kept them in the freezer until the P7 class were ready to make the jam.
When all cooking was completed they designed and made Trifold Leaflets as one of their ICT tasks.
