Happy Christmas – sample of 6th Class work

6th Class with their Christmas Art

Tuesday, December 18, 2018
Cré na hÉireann

Every child and teacher in the school brought a handful of clay from home to the school. In each classroom this clay was poured into a bowl. Then on the day of the ritual these bowls of clay were brought by the children in procession to a central space where the clay was poured into a larger urn (or churn), thereby mixing all the clay received into one. In this way Common Ground was created in which all have participated. This now holds our identities and all our trust; it represents us and our work together.

This mixed clay will then be brought to a plot on the school grounds where it will be poured as bedding in which a holly tree will be planted.

The clay and the growing tree hold concepts of respect, of sharing, of diversity, of inclusion, of poetry and learning.
