Well done to the boys in Room 18 who achieved full attendance for Term 1.
The boys in 6th made a great effort (they put their teacher to shame). We all wish you a Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Well done to everyone who dressed up for our Halloween Parade. It created a great atmosphere around the school.
We enjoyed, in particular, this offering from Mr Conaghan (Trump), Mr Tobin, Luke Thompson (Kim Jong Un), Luke Gorman and Ronan Hackett.
What a game! We could not be prouder of our senior football team who lost in a titanic battle in Croke Park against St Patrick’s NS, Drumcondra. The score was an agonising 4-7 to 4-6.
Perhaps nerves had their part to play in the first half and we trailed by 10 points. This was the point where everyone could give up and surrender the match, however, the David’s boys went out and showed unbelievable heart and brought the score level with 5 minutes to play.
With seconds remaining and a point down, a goal chance from David’s was cleared off the line. It was not meant to be but every player could hold their head up high for the courage and determination they showed, particularly in the second half.
*Pictured above is the guard of honour the parents and staff of St David’s held for every player on their return. In shot is Gavin Tiernan (our double goal-scoring supersub) carried by Finn O’Neill and Luke Thompson.
