Friendship Week 2016
The week beginning the 26th of September 2016 was a special
week in Bishop O’Brien National school, when we celebrated
Friendship Week focusing on positive relationships, being kind
and caring, looking out for each other and ensuring everyone is
Our week began with the launch of our Buddy Bench, which was
kindly presented to the school by the Sixth Class of 2015-2016.
Throughout the week a variety of activities took place in all
classrooms including circle time, art activities, paired reading
between senior and junior classes, creating recipes for
friendship, writing friendship poems etc.
We also ran an art/slogan competition for the whole school. All
the children in the school put great effort into their posters and
these will be displayed around the school in the coming weeks.
Below is a picture of the children who came first in their class
groups along with the posters they created.
Our week finished up on Friday with a friendship themed movie
Overall, it was a fantastic week and the message of friendship
was embraced by all. We hope the spirit of friendship nurtured
during the week will continue and grow throughout the coming
year both at home and at school.
