On Sunday I went to Pullathomas’s communion party at four o’clock I got home at nine o’ciock but before that we saw a horse and a foal. Can you see the horse in the photo? My friend came over on Friday and we played with Paraki.
Paraki has been busy in Inver helping us prepare for our First Holy Communion and planting our new garden. He also enjoyed the boys’ Gaelic football match against our neighbours in Pullathomas National School. Paraki is having a good time here and is glad that summer is coming. He is looking forward to the party next week for the First Holy Communion.
My name is Padraig. I showed Paraki my room, my toys and my laptop. We went out to see the cows and the sheep. I am eight years old. I am making my First Holy Communion this year. I have two sisters called Lisa and Rosaleen. We had a game of football. It was fun.
A visitor arrived in Inver National School today. Paraki arrived from Room 1 in Rotokawa School in Rotorua in New Zealand. Paraki is a Travel Buddy- an adventurous soft toy- and he will go home each day with the pupils to explore life and customs in Inver. We will keep a log of Paraki’s adventures here.
Everyone loved looking at the drawings and photographs of our friends in Room 1 in Rotorua.
This is Paraki. He looks well after his long journey.
Everyone enjoyed looking at the pictures Room 1 sent.
We were wondering where in the world New Zealand is?
