Limerick – Diocesan School Service

This week the pupils went on their first school outing of 2022/2023 to Limerick where the Diocesan Schools Service was held in St Mary’s Cathedral on Thursday 13th October. The children had a wonderful day and the highlight of the service for the children was no doubt the story of the ‘Stone Soup’ which thoroughly engaged the children and allowed some movement for the pupils as they went on a scavenger hunt for ingredients that were hidden in the Cathedral. The theme of the service was Friendship and the story reminded pupils of the importance of sharing and being a good friend. Once the service finished, we spent an hour in King John’s Castle on a self-guided tour where the children were brought back 800 years in history exploring Limerick’s greatest landmark. They learned about King John himself and explored the spacious outdoor courtyard. It was a lovely way to finish off our trip to Limerick.
