GAA Fun for All.

Our Senior Infants have been having lots of fun practising their football and camogie skills over the last number of weeks in their After School Club on Tuesdays with GAA Coach, Barry. For their last session, they boarded a double decker bus and headed down to Russell Park bringing some of  their parents and grandparents with them. They played lots of games and proudly showed their parents and grandparents  the new skills they had learned. They even persuaded the adults to join in  with them! Back inside the clubhouse they enjoyed having their photos taken with The Sam Maguire Trophy. Many thanks to Barry and Willie from St. Brigid’s and Niall from Dublin County Board for organising a most enjoyable afternoon.

Tóraíocht Dhiarmada agus Ghráínne

This is a very famous old Irish story. It tells of Diarmaid and Gráinne and their journey around Ireland, trying to evade capture by Fionn Mac Cumhaill.

You’ll have to read the story to find out if they escaped or were caught!

Our very own owl babies!

The girls in Junior Infants love the story of ‘The Owl Babies’.

They painted their own owls. Aren’t they cute? Well done girls!

Impressionism

Our Sixth Class girls have been studying Impressionism – a style of painting which was popular in the 19th Century.

Small brush strokes and an emphasis on light are hallmarks of this type of painting.

Haven’t they captured the style very well in their own impressionist paintings?

Roald Dahl Day

The girls in Fourth Class have been reading Roald Dahl’s book, The Twits. They really enjoyed the story.

They recommend this book to everyone who likes to curl up with a good book that will make you laugh!
