April Cake Sale Update

On Friday 29th of April, we are having our first cake sale in over two years!

  • Please send cakes or buns, shop bought or home made into school with the children on Friday. The children will bring the cakes to the hall after the bell rings.
  • Please label any containers that need to be returned with your child’s name and class.
  • Each child should have a spare lunch box to put their purchases in as we are limiting our use of plastic bags
  • Children can bring in €2  to spend at the cake sale
  • Classes will visit the cake sale throughout the morning to make their purchases.
  • Reminder: We are a nut free school so please check ingredients before sending in cakes
  • Parents of children with allergies might wish to send specific treats for their child to “purchase”. Please label these clearly eg. Dairy Free / Gluten Free/Egg Free

Thank you for supporting our school fundraisers.

Robotics Workshops Rooms 27 & 28

The children from Rooms 27 & 28 took part in a fantastic robotics  workshop today working with Lego materials to create and program robots.

Thank you to the facilitators from Creative Hut  and Think Big Space for two very engaging sessions.

They also brought along an amazing Lego robot that was built and programmed to complete the Rubric Cube for the children to see!


5th class tour

On Wednesday morning, the children in 5th class headed off on their school tour to Croke Park. They toured the grounds of  the stadium, visited the dressing rooms, learned lots of historical facts relating to events held in the stadium and even spent time in the commentary stand!

After a quick bite to eat and a chance to kick a ball and hit a sliotar, they headed off JumpZone for some fantastic fun in the inflatable adventure park.



Athletics in UCD

Today our 5th and 6th classes were represented by 28 classmates who took part at the Cumann na mBunscoile athletics event in UCD.

The team travelled by bus accompanied by Mr. Lowery and Ms.O’Brien and what a day they had!

Early in the afternoon, we were delighted to hear the great news that the U14 boys’ relay team had come 1st overall and were bringing home the cup for the first time in TEN years.

When the team returned to school they were greeted at the gate by all the 5th and 6th classes who clapped and cheered them home. We were all dazzled by the number of medals they were wearing!

In addition to those five medals of the U4 relay team, all of our relay teams reached the finals with the U12 girls’ team achieving medals for 3rd place.

In the individual sprints, Sadie Meade ran the race of her life to finish 2nd and Cathal Joyce and Ali Woods both won 3rd place medals.

Well done to all the athletes who gave it their very best today and a huge thanks to the organisers, Mr. Lowery and Ms. O’Brien who couldn’t stop smiling all afternoon.

The children who took part were

Lucie Boyle,  Hugh Cunningham,  Caelan Mc Donald, Sienna Mc Carthy, Ciara O’Neill,  Sebastian Kelly, Grace Hickey,  Belle Gilfedder, Cian Corley,   Rachel Spratt, Michael Toal, Tom Nolan,  Tom Noble, Cory Mc Cullagh,    Kate Bourke, Daniel Finegan, Cathal Joyce, Ailbhe O’Grady, Caoimhe O’Dwyer, Sadie Meade, Daniel Lynch, Jack Mansfield, Lucas Guardiola, Ali Woods, Sorcha Joyce, Ciara O’Reilly, Grace Coghlan and Pedro Rodriguez

Food Dudes Phase 2

Well done everyone on participating in the Food Dudes initiative over the last 6 weeks.

Even though we aren’t getting fruit and vegetables delivered each morning, doesn’t mean we have stopped trying to eat healthily. Phase 2 is now in action! This means that it is up to us to bring fruit and vegetables to school in our special Food Dudes lunchboxes.

We are really impressed with the efforts made by everyone so far and we will continue to track the healthy eating habits of each class. We are receiving special certificates for making an effort to bring healthy snacks into school each day.  We are definitely beating the Junk Punks!

Sphero Art in 6th Class

The children in Room 32 recently completed some fabulous art work using Sphero robots as part of their STEM projects. They created paintings in the style of the artist Jackson Pollack using Spheros instead of brushes! They controlled the robots using the Sphero Edu app on iPads.
