The boys showing off both their colour mixing and painting skills.
We watched an old Disney cartoon of the story of The 3 Little Pigs. Of course this is usually aimed at a younger audience, but afterwards the boys were tasked with designing houses made of straw, sticks and bricks (straws, lollipop sticks and jenga blocks), that could withstand the Big Bad Wolf (a hairdryer in disguise). They really got heavily involved in this design and make activity, resulting in some very ingenious designs that were successful in defending against repeated wolf attacks.
On Tuesday 6 February two quiz teams from St David’s BNS attended the Credit Union Quiz night in Parnell’s GAA Club. The eight boys were selected from the fifth and sixth classes with two boys from each class participating.
The boys were a credit to the school and their parents on the night. They looked smart in their uniforms, gave their best effort and behaved impeccably.
Last week was music week in school, and every class prepared and performed a song at Friday’s assembly. There was an amazing mix of songs and really great talent from all classes!

Fourth class attended a great science workshop in St. David’s CBS today. There were 6 different stations set up in the science lab, and each one was led by one or two transition year students. We got to try each experiment and had plenty of time to ask lots of questions and learn all about what we were doing. It was a fantastic morning!
