Straw and Order - A Lawfully Good Nativity! @LeckaunNS

Tonight is the night that Leckaun National School will put on a ‘Lawfully Good Nativity’. They will take the audience to a courtroom in the middle of Bethlehem. 

Here we will meet a few tricky cows who feel pushed out of their stable and some indignant donkeys accused of having invited over a whole host of people - including a baby! 
The Court Clerks, Miss Proper, Miss Correct and Grumps himself won’t be able to contain the commotion and will require the assistance of our new Garda Síochána recruits straight out of Templemore!

Judge Grumps by his name is harsh and will more that live up to his name as he grumpily storms out of the courtroom to witness the night’s events first-hand.

Grumps and his patient narrator will be transported from the Courtroom to Busy Bethlehem. They will encounter some social media crazy villagers, three bickering innkeepers,  a very Sassy Mrs. Innkeeper, a few very witty wise men complete with their own fan club, some super slick Quizmasters, two very cool and focused Shepherds with walkie-talkies, Dancing Sheep who love nothing more than to shake their tails at their adoring audience and a spectacular Angel Choir who would give the Nutcracker’s Clara a run for her money! 

Oh the baby, don’t forget the baby! - a sweet voice will capture everyone’s hearts with “Precious Baby”. 

But how will it all end? Can Judge Grumps manage to close the case or will those rowdy animals refuse to live in peace and harmony? 

Join us in the Manor hall to see how the case proceeds!

TY Placement Week 2

We hand not one but two past pupils over the last two weeks in our school. Evanna was also taught by Mrs. Gilmartin in Junior Infants and again in her final year in 6th class. 
The pupils and staff enjoyed welcoming past pupils back and we wish both students the very best in the future.
