Watch: Blarney Street CBS hosts virtual school assembly; Students say they miss their friends

Pupils at Blarney Street CBS came together whilst staying apart today with an online school assembly.

The class, who should have been making their First Holy Communion this month, created a video where they spoke about what they are missing most whilst being out of school.

The pupils also paid tribute to frontline workers, thanking them for their enormous efforts in the fight against Covid-19. 

"Welcome everybody. We hope that you are safe and well. 

"The boys in second class have come together while staying apart to share this positive message," Mrs Greene wrote to introduce the video.

Amongst the most popular things the boys are looking forward to returning to when the school reopens is drama with Ms Kavanagh, art with Mrs Greene, PE with Mr Russell and OT with Mr Casey.

"What I'm looking forward to when the coronavirus is over is playing with all my buddies and my friends," one pupil said, whilst another added, "My dad is working at the ambulance and I'm proud of him because he saves lots of lives and he's a good dad."

One pupil, who says his mum developed Covid-19, thanked all the staff at the Mercy University Hospital for looking after her.
