The First Class children were tasked with creating rock art that promoted a positive mental health message. These rocks/pebbles would then be placed in our Wellness are for everyone to see and enjoy.
A big thank you to Ms O Regan, along with Ms Mannion and Ms Donnelly who gathered up over one hundren rocks and hauled them into school.
Each class painted the rocks white to begin with and then thought of their own design to paint onto the pebbles. There were some fantastic creations, with one painted "A Hug For You" in reference to Adam from The Late Late Toy Show.
Once they were painted, Mrs Heffernan varnished them to protect them from the elements outside. Our fabulous caretaker, Pshemeck, then cemented them into the ground and Mrs Heffernan finished the area by painted the cement green and adding a few sparkly stars.
Take a look at all the wonderful creations below. They capture the mood of what was a VERY strange 2020/2021, with their positive mental health messages. Hopefully in years to come we will look back at this year and these pebbles and remember how we all worked together to stay safe and protect our loved ones.
