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.

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.

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!

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. 

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.

 

‘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.

St David’s Junior Football

Well done to the school’s junior football team who finished 2nd in the North Dublin League.  Highlight of the campaign was a comprehensive home win against Scoil Mobhi in our last game.
