This week is Science Week and we are having great fun experimenting in 4th class. Today we made lava lamps and the results were so exciting!
Our annual St. David’s Halloween Coffee Morning was a great success! The boys’ costumes were fantastic and the costume parades were enjoyed by all.
Thanks to all of the parents for the great efforts with costumes, for coming in to enjoy some cake and coffee, and to the Parents Association for all of the hard work!
Happy Halloween! 👻 🎃
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.

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.
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.
