FAI 5-a-Side Tournament

This week, our school sent two teams to take part in the annual FAI 5-a-side Soccer Tournament. To say the teams did our school proud would be an understatement. Both teams qualified from their groups with good wins over tough opposition and both teams managed to reach their respective finals. Our boys team managed to score the most goals of any other team in the tournament. Unfortunately (and unbelievably), both teams lost their finals in penalty shoot-outs!

We were so impressed with the level of dedication, skill and sportsmanship shown by all players. Despite some questionable refereeing decisions, you all showed great composure and represented our school brilliantly.

A special mention goes to all of the children that have taken part in soccer this year. Honestly, we could have entered five teams, all of an equally high standard. We had to choose our squads by raffle but those children that missed out this year will be given priority next time around.

Seachtain na Gaeilge 2019

Hi everyone,

We are celebrating Seachtain na Gaeilge this week and yesterday we were very fortunate to have a performance by John Spillane in the hall for the children.  John sang some songs as Gaeilge from his “Songs we learned in Primary school” albums and the children seemed to really enjoy it.  Perhaps they mentioned it when they got home last night.

Go raibh maith agaibh go leir!

Diving for Data: A Marine Workshop

This week, our 5th Classes welcomed Loraine from Oceaneers Education to the school. Loraine conducted a lively, informative and fun workshop on Marine Litter.

The children got to explore the sources of marine litter using graphs and simple addition and also learn about micro-plastics and how they are harming marine animals.

Thank you to Loraine and to Fingal County Council for providing funding for the workshop. Title: Diving for Data

Christmas Shoebox Appeal

INNER CITY HELPING HOMELESS
CHRISTMAS SHOEBOX APPEAL

Collection at Educate Together @ 8.30am, 1.10pm & 2.10pm Dec 7TH

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Our recently elected Student Council met recently to discuss a number of important school related topics. As always, one item of discussion was deciding on a charity to support this year. It was decided that this month we will once again hold a shoebox appeal in support of Inner City Helping Homeless charity. Last years appeal was a massive success for a vital cause.

  • There were officially 9,698 people homeless including 3,829 children in Sept 2018 across Ireland and this number increases every day.   More than one in three people in emergency accommodation is a child. However, this number does not include ‘hidden homelessness’ which refers to people who are living in squats, cars, refuges and people sleeping on the street.It is estimated that the true homeless figure is over 11,000 in Ireland.
  • Inner City Helping Homeless engage with approximately 150 people sleeping on the streets of Dublin every evening.

If you wish to support this charity, please see the details below.

Thank you

5-a-side Tournament

Last week saw the opening fixtures in our school soccer tournament. We have forty-five children from our Senior Classes making up 9 teams (our staff have a team to make up the numbers!) and it was wonderful to see so many happy and enthusiastic footballers taking part during lunch break.

It was a hugely successful opening week… There were a number of hard-fought matches, some draws, some interesting celebrations, plenty of goals and one broken goalpost!

The Portuguese team are currently sitting at the top of the league, followed by France and our (not competitive at all) Staff team!

For anyone interested, the fixtures and league table are on the noticeboard in the lobby.
