The Parents Association held their annual family table quiz on Friday evening in St. Molaga’s school hall. They had 27 families participating and enjoying all the fun of this great annual event. Congratulations to the Forde family who are this year’s winners.
On Friday, we joined a Puffin Virtually Live presentation. We were able to draw along with Adam Hargreaves – son of Roger Hargreaves, who continues his father’s popular Mr. Men and Little Miss series of children’s books, and this year has illustrated the Dr Men Series.
We created comic book characters with Jeff Kinney, author and illustrator of Diary of Wimpy Kid.
We were inspired to create our own superhero by Ali-A, who’s been inspired by his new graphic novel Game On1!, illustrated by Alek Sotirovski.
We heard the author of Wonder, R. J. Palacio, talking about using technology to create illustrations.
One of the best sections was looking at the wonderful illustrations in Malala’s inspiring new picture book, Malala’s Magic Pencil illustrated by Kerascoët. We have read this book in class and we love it.
Congratulations to the boys and girls of Senior Choir who won the Under 13’s competition at the Drogheda Youth Choral Competition on Friday 24th November. They sang ‘Ching a Ring Chaw’ and ‘Somewhere in my Memory’, taking home the trophy for the second year in a row.
That afternoon, they shared their music with the residents and staff at Sunhill Nursing Home in Termonfechin. The residents were delighted with their singing and even joined in with ‘The Foggy Dew’.
The choir are now looking forward to their carol singing in the Department of Children and Youth Affairs next Tuesday and at Millfield on Wednesday 20th December. The junior choir are also busy practising and hope to bring their Christmas tunes to local nursing homes in the coming weeks.

We had a Mystery Skype today with St Louis School, Leamington, Ontario, Canada.
We found them, before they found us. It was great fun and it was our first Skype Call with Canada this year.
They are a 4th Grade class and their teacher is Ms. Reeb.
We hope to connect with them again.
We had a great story telling Skype call today with Olivia from the Night Zoo.
She got us to use our imagination, she told us it was our super power! We imagined lots of new animals for the Night Zoo.
Olivia then read us a story….but we have to find out what happens by reading the rest of the story on Night Zookeeper.com
We really enjoyed the call and Olivia answered lots of questions for us, and listened to lots of our stories!
We took part today in a Skype Flash Mob. There were schools from all over the world taking part. We acted as the jury for NIS, a school in Shymkent. (Skymken is the capital of the south Kazakhstan.)
The children in NIS school, performed dances in groups, and we as jury members voted on their performance based on a set of criteria.
