December (1) - Puppet Show and Visit to Newpark Care Home

21st Dec 2017

In a very busy month of December, there is much to tell you all about. Our first major event of the month saw a Travelling Puppet Show come in to us on Monday December 11th. The cast came from all over the world and were expert actors and puppeteers.

The show was based on two puppets named Cecil and Justine who overcome their differences and become great friends.

As you can see, we were engrossed in the show throughout!

Then, on December 14th, we took a trip over the Newpark Care Home to sing carols for the seniors. We sang our three carols that we will be doing for the Christmas concert (White Christmas, Mary's Boy Child and Happy Xmas War is Over) as well as two others (Away in a Manger and Silent Night).

This trip was in advance of our partaking in the Bealtaine project in Term 2 where we pay several visits to Newpark as a form of community outreach to learn more about living as an elderly person in Ireland and to teach them about being children in Ireland in 2017.

We had a lovely time and the residents seemed to really enjoy our visit. The staff were wonderful also and they provided us with fruit and juice for refreshment. To say thank you, we created Christmas cards for the residents. We look forward to returning early in the New Year!
