PostHeaderIcon Celebrating Chinese New Year

Our school has been busy celebrating Chinese New Year for the past 2 weeks. Romi from Hill Street Centre visited many classes to show them how to make Chinese lanterns. A number of classes also entered into their Chinese New Year art competition.

Ms. O’Doherty also organised for a number of classes to take part in a Chinese Dance workshop. 6th Class really enjoyed it. They got to try on the lion heads, become dragons as well as take part in a traditional fan dance. It was a lot of fun and they all learned a lot about Chinese culture too. Wishing you all a prosperous year in this, the Year of the Pig.

February 4th – 8th was Say No to Bullying Week in Gardiner Street Primary School. All the boys and girls were revising the steps to follow if they ever feel they are being bullied at school. They are:

  1. Say stop.
  2. Walk away.
  3. Tell an adult.
  4. Keep on telling.
  5. Follow the adult’s advice.

All of the pupils at school also took part in a poster competition to celebrate the event. There are some amazing artists in this school and it made choosing the winners extremely difficult! Take a look at the photos below of the artists who came out on top with their works of art. I’m sure you’ll agree they did a great job! Big thanks to all the students and teachers who participated in this caring initiative in every class.

To celebrate the birthday of our founder, Venerable Mary Aikenhead, 6th Class visited the Mary Aikenhead Centre in Harold’s Cross on January 16th. There was lots to be learned and marvelled at. It was also nice to hear about how special our school is, being the first ever Sisters of Charity school. A big thank you to Sr. Mary and Sr. Helen who gave us a wonderful tour of the centre.
