Primary Science Stem Award

This year we are participating in Primary Science STEM Award. We are aiming to achieve the Award of Excellence. To this end classes across the school are enthusiastically engaging in science, technology, engineering and maths activities. The children have also participated in very interesting workshops.  In November we had Junior Einsteins science show for 3rd and 4th classes. More recently, 5th and 6th classes had “Hour of Code” with external facilitators, which was very enjoyable and successful.

GAA

We started our football campaign on the second week back at school. We got our first win against St. Colmcilles, Knocklyon. After our first win we were excited to meet our next opponents. Unfortunately, we narrowly lost to Loreto Rathfarnham by three points. However we showed great spirit as a team. Our last group match was against Bishop Galvin. We had a marvellous win which brought us to the quarter final stages of the Cumann na mbunscol competition. In the quarter final we played St. Fiachra’s of Beaumont. This was our best match. It took everyone’s best efforts to beat this excellent team. We were very lucky to get a late goal to win the match.  Next we faced our local rivals, Hollypark in the semi-final. Unfortunately it didn’t go our way but we are very proud of how far we got in the competition. Finally, we want to thank our classmates, teachers and parents for their support on the side lines this year.
