Scór na bPáistí
The children from Bishop O’Brien National School participated in
the quarter finals of Scór na bPáistí in Lisgoold on Sunday 7th February.
They participated in the Quiz, Recitation and Novelty Act sections and
they all did us very proud. The novelty act was selected to progress to
the semi-finals in Lisgoold on February 27th/28th.
The novelty act is called ‘Bartlemy Remembers’ and is based on in a
modern day classroom looking back to the events of 1916. It was written
by our local historian John Arnold. Many thanks to Marie Gubbins and
John Arnold for helping to prepare the children for the novelty act.
Please enjoy looking at some of the photos from the quarter finals of
Shrove Tuesday 2016
We celebrated Pancake Tuesday/
Shrove Tuesday or Máirt na hInide
in style in Bishop O’Brien National
school. Pancake Tuesday is the day
before Ash Wednesday, which is the
first day of Lent.
Traditionally on this day pancakes were made to use up all the flour and
eggs before the fasting season of Lent began.
Pancakes were made for every child and staff member and were filled
with lots of yummy things like chocolate spread, maple syrup or the
traditional lemon and sugar. Have a look at our pictures below.
Thanks to Mrs.O'Brien Kennelly, Ms.Roche, Rebecca Kearney and
Beineon O'Brien Whitmarsh who were very busy in the kitchen.

On Thursday the 4th of February 2016 we celebrated
Grandparents' day as part of Catholic Schools Week.
Following a beautiful mass in the church the
grandparents made their way to the school where they
were given the opportunity to spend some time with their
grandchildren in their classrooms. The children sang
songs, recited poetry and played tin whistle tunes for
A wonderful day was had by all.
