And pet lamb Mint Sauce also came along to remind us that next Sunday is of course Easter Sunday.

Our picture shows Ann Middleton holding Mint Sauce.

Also in our photo are parents Paul and Ciara Boyle from Charlestown Ardee.

Their children Sean, left, who is in second class, and Rory, who is in senior infants.

That’s Rory pointing to Mr Wolf’s clock which has to go forward one hour on Saturday night.

Two-year-old Orlaith, who will be heading off for the school in two year’s time, is wearing a Little Bo Peep dress and hat made by her grandmother Margaret O’Reilly, from an old evening gown.

And mum Ciara is holding five months old Liam who will join the rest of the clan at the school in 2017.

Dad Paul made the Mr Wolf clock for the school and grandfather John O’Reilly painted it.

So smile and be happy.

The cold spell is almost over.

It’s Easter, and it’s springtime.

And now it’s summertime too.
