Yoga in Fifth Classes

Our fifth classes are currently enjoying a six week yoga course with  their yoga teacher Lynsey Lynn. We would like to thank our Parents Association for funding this initiative which is very beneficial to our pupils. They have learned a number of yoga poses, stretches and relaxation techniques and have really enjoyed the classes. We hope that they continue to practise what they have learned.

Arts Week

We have had a wonderful Arts Week here in school and each day we had different visitors and activities. I would like to thank all the staff, but especially, Ms Hegarty, for the work, organisation and planning that has ensured that every child had a great learning experience this week. Thank you for all the fun!

Planting Spring Bulbs

We had our traditional bulb planting today with all our new pupils  in St.Molaga’s Senior N.S. We were delighted that some parents joined us as bulb planting is one of the most enjoyable events in the early months of the new school year.  The pupils learned how to plant the bulbs correctly and are now eagerly awaiting the spring, when they can enjoy the daffodils and tulips to the right of the path as they walk into school. They were amazed to learn that the bulbs will continue to flower long after they have left St. Molaga’s.

Senior Boys Football Final

Well done to our senior boys football team who played in Parnell Park today. They played a brilliant match but it was not their day. We are all very proud of them and their managers, Mr Brown and Ms Daly. Thank you for all your hard work.

Thank you to all our supporters also who showed their appreciation of our great team.

Garda Mounted Unit Visit

We were delighted to have a visit from two Garda and their horses, Donnagh and Oscar today. This was a prize for our achievement in winning the overall prize in the Garda Christmas Card competition  in December. Kevin Dowling won the overall prize and Alanna McCormack won the top prize in her category. Congratulations again to you two and I would like to say Thank you on behalf of all in St. Molagas to  Alanna and Kevin for their achievements.

Each class had an opportunity to meet the horses and hear all about the work of the Garda Mounted Unit which is based in the Phoenix Park. They also had time to ask lots of questions and to pet the horses. I would like to say a big Thank You to Garda Kate who organised this event for us.

Kid’s Marathon

Over the past few weeks, all of the sixth classes have worked extremely hard to prepare for the Dublin Kid’s Marathon for the first time. We have worked hard since September, by running increasing numbers of laps around our local all weather pitch. We persevered for eight weeks to prepare for the event.

A group of people gathered at the National Sports Campus to run at the original event. Their aim was to run the last mile of the Dublin Kid’s Marathon.

While some people attended, some were unable to attend and therefore Ms Walsh kindly organised our own event in our school. Ms McGinley’s, Mr Brown’s, Ms Gray’s, Ms McMahon’s and Ms Reilly’s c;asses all ran, regardless of their ability. Everybody that ran got a medal! It was a fantastic event.

A BIG THANKS to Ms Walsh and all the other teachers that were involved in the 8 weeks of training.

Colm, Daniel, Kate, Kevin and Mary from Ms McGinley’s class. Continue reading Kid’s Marathon
