During the October holidays Ms Scanlan received an email from Lomayana school, full of wonderful messages and pictures for the class. It is always lovely to see the beautiful designs and drawings that they send and it’s great to hear back from them all and see how they are getting on.
Here is a photo of the class with their messages.
On Wednesday 29th August, the Primary 7s went to see a film called Breadwinner.
It was about a young girl called Parvana who lived in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, in around late 2001. Since she is a girl, she does not have the same rights that boys have. When her father is taken to prison, she cuts her hair, and pretends to be a boy, so she can be the breadwinner for her family.
It was a very heartwarming film and it made us realise how lucky we are, and that we should be very grateful for what we have.
Emmy – I thought it was a very good film and the animation was beautiful.
Ronan – It was very interesting and it made me feel lucky for what I have.
Junias – I would give it 4/5 stars.
Tryphena – I thought it was very moving.
