Month: February 2017

All set for our Book Fair!

The time of year has come again to fill up our shelves with some more great reads! The boys had a chance this week to get a taster of what books they could get stuck into.

The Book Fair will be held in school on Monday the 20th and Tuesday the 21st of February.

You can find magic wherever you look, sit back and relax. All you need is a book.” – Dr. Suess 

Operation Transformation 10@10

Last  Friday, Operation Transformation  were encouraging primary school children all over the country to get active at 10am for 10 minutes on 10th February!

The 10@10 is an Operation Transformation initiative to get children to do 10 minutes of exercise at 10am. All classes here in St. David’s met in the yard just before 10, got warmed up and were ready to go!

We had great fun doing our 10@10 and plan to continue to stay active this year in school!

Senior Football

Well done to St David’s Senior Football team who reached the semi-final of the Dublin School’s Cup. We had some great wins along the way and we were a kick of the ball away from playing the final in Croke Park. A particular highlight was our commanding win in the quarter-final against Scoil Mobhi. 

Peace Proms 2017

This year the choir participated in Peace Proms 2017. They sang with the Cross Border Orchestra of Ireland under conductor Greg Beardsell in the RDS on Saturday night. It was a fun-filled evening with lots of different performances.  The boys have been rehearsing for Peace Proms since October and they did the school proud on Saturday night!

Young Einstein Science

Oliwia from the Young Einstein Science Program has visited us for the past 4 weeks. We learned all sorts of cool new things to do with electricity, crime scenes and explosions.

 

Junior Einstein 4th Class

For our final Junior Einstein session with Oliwia, we took part in several very cool experiments to demonstrate chemical reactions.

‘Fighting Words’ Literacy Workshop

We were delighted when our class was accepted to attend the ‘Fighting Words’ literacy workshop. This workshop is the brainchild of Roddy Doyle and aims to promote the art of storytelling in students in both Primary and Secondary schools.  Each writer received their own personalised book of the story which included the illustrations and their photo at the back.
