Croí na gCruthú

16th Sep 2023

On Friday 15th September we "unveiled" our new outdoor learning space. Due to the weather conditions our unveiling became an indoor celebration.  
We won't let the rain get in our way 😊

The students of Timahoe were joined by special guests; artist Alan Meredith, Creative School's associate Aideen McHugh, Chairman of Laois County Council Pascal McEvoy, Fr.Kelly and our former principal Ann Bergin.

We gathered in the school hall to reflect on our Creative Schools journey and explain why we chose Croí na gCruthú as the name of our new space. 
The Creative School's Committee explained that Croí means heart. Our students are at the heart of our school community and we hope that the school is often the heart of the Timahoe Community.  Cruthú is the shortened Irish for Creativity. We hope spending time learning outdoors will inspire more Creativity in Timahoe NS for years to come. 

Fr. Kelly shared a special blessing for the students and Croí na gCruthú

The celebrations concluded with a slideshow and an icecream van for everyone to enjoy. Rain or shine- icecream is always a good idea!
