Maith sibh gach duine as ceacht Gaeilge a dhéanamh ar líne linn inniu! Bhí a lán spraoi againn. Comhghairdeas as a bheith ag obair chomh crua i rang a ceathair!
Well done to everybody on another week of fantastic engagement with distance learning - we're seeing lots of faces at our zoom calls, terrific work being handed in and lots of great questions and discussions during our meetings. Well done everybody!
A particular congratulations to Sangela in Laurel Class and Leila in Beech Class for being awarded Student of the Week for all their hard work and great engagement this week - well done guys!
Thank you Sarah for a terrific PE lesson today - we were all sweating after that (children and adults)! The scavenger hunt at the end was terrific fun - we all did our best to be the first ones back with the objects we needed for the challenge. Shauna showed a particularly well developed competitive streak.
First up was "something yellow" and Ritvik was back like a rocket with a banana (which might make an appearance again later).
Next we had to find something soft and top marks for quick-thinking go to Leonard for pointing at his couch in the background.
For "something beginning with B" we had a few bears, and a selection of balls, but Sarah was the only one who came back with a basket! Well done Ritvik for having the banana with you already!
"Something blue" was another colour-based clue that had us running around the house. Shauna was quick off the mark with her Sharpie but Manaal was also off like a rocket to retrieve her blue chair.
Tremendous fun everybody! Thanks for joining us all this week - have a lovely weekend and we'll see you Monday!
A huge congratulations to all the children and parents in Beech and Laurel classes for such super commitment to distance learning this week. We have been really impressed by everybody showing up for live zooms, working on the assigned work and being so independent and hard-working. We can't wait for the day when we get to welcome you all back to school but in the meantime we are thrilled with the dedication to distance learning - well done!
We have also been getting such a kick from the check-ins every morning this week - we love getting to hear your news and see how everybody is getting on. And a big congratulations to our Students of the week! Congratulations to Luke from Beech Class and Leo from Laurel Class for all their hard work and their well-deserved awards!
We decorated our door in Laurel Class and we've decided the theme we wanted to celebrate was bursting out of 2020!
We've worked hard so far this year and we can't wait to jump into 2021!
A huge congratulations to Kaylem and Usman for achieving Student of the Week this week! We're very proud of all the hard work guys - keep it up!
Well done to Laurel and Beech classes who used their maths eyes to explore the school environment on a maths trail this week. The children applied their understanding of measures, shapes, lines, numbers and more to the school environment. They were able to use skills like estimation, counting and observation to complete the trail and they all had lots of fun doing it!
Congratulations to Ritvik in the Beech class and Liam in the Laurel class on their student of the week achievement. Well done!
We would like to congratulate all the children in Laurel and Beech classes for their hard work and creativity in researching and creating their projects on animal homes. Everybody showed great diligence in researching their chosen topics for the projects and gave excellent presentations to class. Well done all!

We have noticed so many families cycling to school over the last few weeks, such a great way to get to and from school!!
This week is Bike Week and Fingal County Council are running a virtual cycling event called “Pedal for your Medal”. It is a 50km cycle challenge where participants are asked to complete an accumulated distance of 50kms cycling during bike week.
However, we realise this is a lot to ask of primary school children and would like to involve them by making it a little easier on their legs whilst also encouraging them to participate.
We are hoping that the younger children could register for their 50kms during Bike Week with a view of them completing 50kms by the end of October. In return for their completed 50kms they will receive their very only 50km bespoke medal designed by MMI Group.
