We had 2 wonderful Sport’s Days this week. On Monday, Junior & senior Infants and 1st & 2nd Classes went to Pearse Park to Crumlin United Club grounds. We received a very warm welcome there and couldn’t believe the sunny weather. The children got to enjoy the high slide, Football shoot out, Silent disco, parachute and many other great activities. On Tuesday, 3rd, 4th, 5th & 6th Classes had a very active Sport’s Day. Again, the Silent Disco proved to be very popular, as well as Rounders, Tug of War, Bungee Basketball, Penalty Shootout, Novelty Races and Cic agus Puc Fada. Many parents and families came to enjoy the activities.
The school is a busy place this term. Activities such as violin lessons have resumed in the CCMA each week. The after-school clubs are also up and running. There is great variety:- Irish dancing, Book Club, Active Club, Music club, Homework club, Coding club, Lego club, Whizz Kids & knitting club, so many interests are catered for.
Our 6th classes will be receiving their Confirmation on Thursday 17th Feb in the church. We hope they have a lovely day.
We are continuing to work on our Green School status. The focus is on travel this time, and one of the main things to have happened was the School Zone outside the school. It means that the footpaths outside the school are clear of traffic, and makes them safer for walking, cycling or scooting! The planters with trees & flowers are lovely too. We have also received news that Dublin City Council are going to install a sheltered bicycle rack in the yard during the year.
It’s great to see that the parents are walking together on Wednesday mornings at 9am. Everyone is welcome to join the group.
It was lovely to read about ‘The Crumlin Community Clean Up’ in The Irish Times recently, and to spot some of our pupils & parents in the photo. Find our more about this group here!
As part of Seachtain na Gaeilge (which actually lasts for the whole month of March), all classes in school performed songs, dances and poems for each other. All pupils were encouraged to use more Irish everyday and won prizes and certificates for speaking more Gaeilge.
On Tuesday, 12th February; classes from Senior Infants to 2nd class received a Chinese New Year Dance and Drama workshop from School Workshops celebrating the International Year of the Pig.
Well done to all of our pupils (including past pupils) who performed so brilliantly at the weekend in the St Agnes’ Musical Society’s rendition of Hansel and Gretel.
Our senior school Christmas concert took place on Friday, 14th December. All classes 3rd to 6th performed for their parents and families. We saw some great acting skills and singing not to mention some fantastic dance moves from our 6th class boys!
