Violin Lessons by Therese (6th Class)

Last year Mrs. Quinn asked Natalia about teaching the violin in our school. Natalia kindly agreed. Therefore Mrs. Quinn inquired from 3rd to 6th class if anyone was interested in taking up the violin.
A vast amount of children showed an interest from the classes.
When we first met Natalia we were greeted by a kind, smiling person. She asked us our names and sorted us into groups.
She has taught us some beautiful simple tunes. After only eleven lessons we were able to put on a performance for the parents. It was a fantastic experience for us.
I love the lessons and will definitely keep it up in Secondary School. Any doubts I had that the violin would be a difficult instrument to play have now been dispelled.
Thank you Natalia and Mrs. Quinn.

We again entered the annual Credit Union poster Competition where students were invited to design and create a poster with the slogan – Credit Unions – Gotta lotta Colour. We had one winner at local chapter level, Grace Shimmons. Well done, Grace


Athlone Education Centre ran a competition whereby students were invited to write a letter to anyone they wished and the winning letters were published in a book entitled ” Yours Sincerely”, a copy of which each winner received as part of their prize.
Winners – Magda Szklanna 6th class, Amy Lawlor 3rd class and Claire Mc Cormack 2nd Class.
Highly commended were Nadia Zydek, Kayleigh Mc Nally Mulligan, Lara Farrell, Therese Hamm and Grace Shimmons.
