Circuits – 6th Class

For PE today we undertook circuit training. As a class, we brainstormed different ideas and skills we could incorporate into the session. The boys were careful to include both physical and technical activities and to stagger them so that each muscle would get a rest. 

6th Class Attendance

Well done to the boys in Room 18 who achieved full attendance for Term 1.

Christmas Time in Room 18

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!

6th & 1st Class – Reading Buddies

Ms O’Leary’s 1st Class met their Reading Buddies from Mr Moloney’s 6th Class for the first time today. We will be meeting up once a week for shared and guided reading exercises.

6th Class Science Day

As part of National Science Week we took part in a Food Experiment Course in Donnycarney Community Centre. We learned all about Liquid Nitrogen Ice-Cream, Experimental Cavier, Agar Seaweed, Taste Testing & much more. The boys loved the hands-on nature of the experiments.

Trump Vs Kim – Halloween Celebrations

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.

The Heroes Return

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.

We’re Going To Croker!!

Well one boys! You are the 1st David’s Senior team to make it to Croke Park in over 15 years.

A fully deserved win and everyone in the school is looking forward to our day out in Croke Park on Wednesday, 25th October.

We will be playing St Patrick’s, Drumcondra at 10am by the Davin Stand. Tickets for parents are available in school and they are €5 each. 

Senior Football – Quarter Final

Congratulations to all the boys involved with the senior gaelic football team who won an absolute thriller last Thursday against Lucan’s Scoil Aine Esker.

The lead changed hands multiple times with St David’s leading by 1 point at half time. With 10 minutes left, disaster struck as Scoil Aine scored 2 goals in the space of 1 minute. Huge credit must go to the David’s boys as they kept their cool and brought the scores back to level with minutes remaining and popped over the winning score in injury time.

The final score was Davids 4-12  to  Scoil Aines 4-11.

Our Semi-Final takes place on Thursday 19th Oct.
