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.

Official Opening of the Cycle Path through Willsbrook Park

As part of National Bike Week and our own Active Week in school, fourteen children from Jenny's Sixth Class attended the official opening of the Cycle Path through Willsbrook Park on Monday 12 June.

We are looking forward to enjoying using our bikes on the path over the summer and beyond.

 

SARI - Sport Against Racism Ireland Workshops

Yesterday SARI visited our 5th and 6th classes to deliver anti-discrimination workshops. The children learned how to play fairly and without discrimination in a fun way. The children had the opportunity to discuss their experiences with sports and play a range of sports from football to handball. The children really enjoyed the workshops!

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!
