On the 15th of September this year 1st and 2nd Class returned to their tennis lessons. They had a great time practising their forward hand shots and trying to get control over the ball. They all looked like pros!
The class of EX 1 (4th class) had a busy week last week preparing for the All-Ireland Football final v Mayo! We were busy singing ‘Molly Malone’ and we also played it on our tin whistles! However, we’ll have to do it all over again as the game resulted in a draw. The replay will take place on Saturday the 1st of October in Croke Park stadium! Who do you think will win?
We all had great fun celebrating Roald Dahl Day on the 13th of September this year. This year marked what would have been his 100th birthday.
Roald Dahl was an incredibly creative author. He even made up his own language, Gobblefunk, which features widely in his books. His children’s books are some of the best-loved stories in the world. There was great debate around the school as to which book was his best with everyone choosing a different one! Check out our pictures of how we all celebrated this phizz-whizzing writer in our classes.
