Swimming

Each class, from 1st to 4th class attends 8 weeks of swimming lessons every year. The children have made great improvements in their swimming and confidence in the water this year. Well done to all the children on another great year of swimming lessons! Keep up the swimming over summer and we will begin a new term of swimming lessons in September. 

Playground

We are so lucky to have our playground for use everyday in school.

Junior and Senior Infants have the opportunity to use the playground during yard every lunch time. They follow a rota for this and the children have enjoyed playing together. They have been so good all year at playing fairly, taking turns and following the playground rules.

From 1st - 6th class, the children have a chance to attend the playground as part of their weekly P.E. Children in all classes love going to the playground!

LETS GAA teams 2016-17

Well done to our Senior Boys and Girls Football, Huring and Camogie teams representing the School from 2016-2017. We had a great year and wish the sixth class boys and girls the very best of luck as they leave us next week. We would like to thank all the parents for their support during the year, giving lifts to and from matches and cheering them on. We would also like to thank Mary Tuohy, Mary Rigney, Selien Devereux, Colette Drum and Eoghan O Shea for all their support during the year. Best wishes Grace, Yvonne, Derek, Donal and Deidre. 

Santry Superstars!

Over the past six weeks children from third to sixth have been giving up their lunch breaks almost every day to go to Willsbrook park to train for Santry. It has been really wonderful to see children so committed to improving their fitness levels and speed and so eager to make the final team. It was a really difficult task in the end with some children narrowly missing out on making the team but a super effort from everyone.

FAI Football Blitz

Well done to the school football team who participated in the FAI Football Blitz in South Dublin Football League last month!

Seven children from the football team represented the school at the event. The children played four matches against local schools. They won one, drew two and lost one match.

The children played excellently! They were very determined and supportive of one another.

The children were presented with certificates in recognition of their brilliant sportsmanship on the day. 

Language of the Month for May - Arabic

This month our language of the month was Arabic. The Arabic speaking children in the school had a great time getting to meet one another. We also had parents visit to speak with the children in Arabic, teach them about the Arabic alphabet, read stories to the children in Arabic and even bring special traditional treats! Take a look at the pictures below to see what we have been up to this month!

XC Finals in Corkagh Park

A team of over 50 students from 3rd to 6th class represented our school last week in the South Dublin Cross Country Finals. All the children ran fantastically and really enjoyed the day. We are very proud of the children's progression this year and it is clear all the lunch time training sessions have paid off. A wonderful day was had by all and the children's behaviour and conduct on the day was exemplary. Well done to all of our runners!

February XC Race Report

First cross country race of 2017

It was a cold, misty morning but that wasn’t going to stop L.E.T.N.S! The 3rd classes started off with a bang. The boys started to prepare as the girls’ race got under way. 300m down to the finish line they ran their hearts out on their very 1st race, with everyone placing well.

Soon the 4th classes started their nerve wracking race! 400m seemed a long way for those determined runners. All placing well, everyone was happy.

5th started an astonishing 500m race! Their hearts were beating fast and their nerves were kicking in, but that didn’t stop them. The girls and boys ran an amazing race, all running superbly, no bother to them.
