Mrs. Colleran’s Retirement Assembly

We celebrated Mrs. Colleran’s retirement in school this week with a splash of green and gold to honour our teacher from Kerry. The senior infant classes celebrated this momentous occasion with a special outdoor assembly where bunting, flags and the children’s art from first class set the scene.

The children sang their hearts out and enchanted us with a performance of “Our Newbridge Rose” written by our very own sna Lelia Sheehy especially for the occasion. They also gave their rendition of “God loves you” and “She’s got the whole world in her hands”.  The children donned their dancing shoes and performed “An Dámhsa Mór” and “It’s a Wonderful life” at the special assembly. The children presented Mrs. Colleran with a beautiful painting by Mrs. Fiona O’Driscoll entitled “And the colours shine because you see them”.

The children celebrated Mrs. Colleran’s huge contribution to the school and to teaching throughout the years. Mrs. Colleran has taught in St. Conleth’s Infant School since 2001 and has shared her expertise both in the mainstream classes and in special education where she always fostered and promoted a love of reading and books. We wish her the very best in her retirement and in all her new adventures. Go néirí an t-ádh leat.
