I was so proud of my senior infants singing their Christmas song today! You all looked so Christmassy, and everyone sang so well!
Well done to all the classes today!🎄🎄
St Dominics and St Colmcilles finished their musical production of The Little Mermaid tonight and what a splashing success it was! We are so proud of you all and the hard work you put into the show. You definitely achieved a ten out of ten tonight! Thanks again to all staff and parents for your continued support and encouragement during the production. Here are a few photos of the cast before the show. If any parents/ guardians took pictures during the show we’d love to post some here. Please see Ms Farrell. Well done to all the children involved, you made us proud tonight!

6th class had a fantastic time on our mystery behaviour trip today.
This morning, we boarded the Luas to town and learned about some of the place names and the Grand Canal en route. We hopped off at Abbey Street and had a mini-tour of O’Connell Street, learning about Jim Larkin and the 1913 Lockout, the GPO and the 1916 Easter Rising, and the Spire.
Then it was back on board the Luas to the Point Village, where we had a special private screening of the new Hobbit film in the new Odeon Cinema, having done the book in 4th Class. Following the movie, we walked out to the East-Link bridge and learned about the docks and the River Liffey. We even saw a seal, who had come upstream to say hello!
Our final activity of the day was ice-skating in the Point Village on Ice. For many of us, this was our first time ice-skating, but everyone had a great time. There were plenty of future Olympians, and not many Bambis on ice!
We got the Luas back home after a fantastic day. All the pupils were excellently-behaved – not a surprise, given it was a behaviour tour. Thanks to Mr Vaughan for his support, and to Luas, the Odeon Point Village, and Point Village on Ice for having us.
We have a busy week planned next week. Staff are busy planning events for each day. We will have some special guests too during the week. Check out our timetable here and we hope all parents attend at some stage during the week.
