As we light our candle today we remember family and friends who have died. All Souls Day is celebrated on the 2nd of November in the church. Itis a tradition of honouring and respecting the memory of the faithful departed.I’m sure you all know people in your family who gone to heaven or who may be very sick, and also people that are special and important to you . We are going to pray in silence for a minute for all the people mentioned. 

 Ms Kelly’s class read the prayers of the faithful-Lily, Devon and Conor

Prayer One

Maths week took place last week in St. Declan’s. It was great to see all the classes involved in so many fun activities. The three first classes went to Imagonisity in Sandyford last Wednesday and had a great day.   Some classes did maths trails, maths notice boards and maths workshops. Thank you to your teachers for making it such a fun week and to Ms O’Halloran for co-ordinating the week.

This year we are going to help raise money for Temple Street Hospital. On the day of the holidays we are asking all the boys and girls in St. Declan’s to dress up in their Halloween clothes and bring in €1 each to your class teacher. We will collect all the money and give it to Temple Street to help all the sick children in hospital.

I want to wish everyone a safe and enjoyable Halloween break. We are closed all of next week for our mid-term break.  We return to school on Monday the 4th of November.

Witch witch, where do you fly? Under the clouds and over the sky.    Witch, witch, what do you eat? Little black apples from Hurricane Street.  Witch, witch, what do you drink? Vinegar and good red ink.                         Witch, witch, where do you sleep? Up in the clouds where the pillows are cheap
