We have been learning about the Global Goals for Sustainable Develpment. These are a set of 17 goals agreed by the United Nations (UN).
These goals aim to to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change. We are taking part in the Our World Irish Aid Awards. This competiton aims to raise awareness of the goals.
We took part in a Skype lesson to learn more about the global goals. We learned about a town in Scotland where they successfully banned the use of plastic straws.
We also took part in a Skype lesson about the damage that is being done to the Coral Reefs by pollution.
Inspired by these lessons, we have decided to try and end the use of plastic straws. We have written to over 30 businesses in Balbriggan to ask them to stop selling or serving plastic straws.
We also wrote to Fingal County Council and Balbriggan Tidy Towns.
You can support us by not using single use plastic straws! You can see some pictures by clicking here.

Tá Seachtain na Gaeilge ar siúl inár scoil an tseachtain seo. Tháinig bean deas darbh ainm Bríd isteach sa scoil agus rinne sí rince gaelach linn. D’fhoghlaimíomar damhsaí cosúil le “Ciorcal le trí” agus “The Rakes”.
Bhí an-spórt go deo againn agus bhíomar traochta ina dhiadh!!
Táimid ag céiliúradh Seachtain na Gaeilge i scoil Naomh Mhologa an tseachtain seo.
Dé Luain tháinig beirt chailín isteach agus sheinn siad ceol deas traidisiúnta dúinn ar uirlislí difriúla: an giotár, an fhidil, an fheadóg stáin agus an bodhrán. Bhí an ceol go hálainn agus bhaineamar go léir an-taitneamh as! Seo cúpla griangrafanna a thugamar.
Last Wednesday, Peter Gunning visited the school to speak to the 6th class students. Peter is the author of the novel Reaching the Heights, a novel which all of the 6th classes have enjoyed reading this year. Peter Gunning spoke to the children about the writing process, the inspiration for his characters and his thoughts about Reaching the Heights and the other novels he has written (including Stanley!).
Peter also read an extract from the book and used a wonderful Cork accent to add to his dramatic reading! The children asked some very insightful questions and really enjoyed the visit. Thanks to Ms. Murphy for contact Peter to organise the talk.
We made 3 D shapes using matchsticks and marshmallows today …..yum !
For the last week, we have been celebrating Friendship Week in St Molaga’s. Each class studied poems about friendship and made a special effort to be nice to one another! Some classes made friendship chains and friendship bracelets, while others wrote poems about friendship.
Throughout the week, the children collected Friendship Tokens when they were seen being friendly and polite. Everyone made a great effort to win as many tokens as possible. Here are the children who received a certificate for being the most friendly and courteous in their class.
We took part this morning in the 10 at 10. These are fun exercises on RTEjr. They are broadcast every day at 10am.
