Thank you once again to our children for their generosity in donating a host of goodies and treats for this year’s Shoe Box appeal in aid of children who are in need. Team Hope who have been running this beautiful event for years sent on their gratitude as well. Thanks also to Ms. Daly for organising this event every year.
Yesterday was a remarkable day in Scoil Mhuire’s history. The gifted artist, Ralf Sander, who created our Phoenix masterpiece returned to our school to officially unveil our incredible art. Mr. Sander also spent the entire day chatting with the students of both Scoil Mhuire and Scoil Bhríde about his work as an artist and his journey in creating our Phoenix. It was an incredible experience in so many ways.
Events began with some of the girls and boys from both schools singing You Are My Brother at the base of the sculpture. Then Ralf gave three separate talks to the students as well as popping in to chat with each class to look at their own art and answer some challenging questions about his work!
We are certain that your nearest and dearest filled you in about the artist coming to school – but just in case, I’m popping some photographic evidence of same on our blog! Enjoy! Also, if you get a chance to look at his website http://www.ralfsander.info you will see what a coup it was to bring him to Tullamore and work with us on our special sculpture.
