Couch to 5K

We are now in week 6 in our Couch to 5K training and the boys are really feeling the benefits. It’s great to hear to boys talk about how much further they can run and how their stamina has improved. Their enthusiasm is contagious and we can’t wait for our 5K run on Thursday, 6th April.

Seachtain na Gaeilge

We had a great week in school for Seachtain na Gaeilge! The boys made a huge effort and were ag caint as Gaeilge all around the school!

Today, we had a big ceolchoirm to showcase the brilliant amhráin agus dánta the classes have been working on.

Bhí sé go hiontach!!! 

Maith sibh, buachaillí!! (Agus múinteoirí!)

 

K’Nex Challange

Day 1 of our K’Nex challenge went excellently. The boys very quickly got to grips with K’nex and how to use it, and have already started making more complicated shapes. They can’t wait for day 2.

Yoga – 5th Class

We have recently started our Yoga course and are now in our 3rd week. Every Wednesday, for 6 weeks, the boys are taught various Yoga poses and introduced to mindfulness. Maura is our instructor and  does a great job in explaining the different poses to the boys.

Green Schools Water Poster Competition

We recently held a water poster competition. Four boys from the senior classes were chosen to be entered into the regional and national competition with An Taisce. In the junior classes four winners were chosen to get a prize and their posters are displayed on the Green Schools Noticeboard.

 

Credit Union Table Quiz

The boys from St Davids BNS participated in the Credit Union Table Quiz. This took place on 8 February in Parnell’s GAA Club. The boys had a great night and Bobby even went up on stage to entertain us! The boys who represented the school were Bobby Davis, Sean Pasquetti, Adam Lowry, Karl Popa, Jack Woods, Davids Corbert, Ciaran O’Toole and Cian Graham. Well done, you did David’s proud!

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!
