Follow the link for a clip of one of his rehearsals, as well as a picture of a Gruffalo that Kevin drew.

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.
The RSA came to visit today, ourselves and MS Sullivan’s Class had a terrific presentation and discussion about road safety.
Congratulations and well done to Jake and CJ who took part in a sponsored swim at Christmas and raised €300 for St. Molaga’s S.N.S. This money will go towards the cost of a Friendship Bench in memory of Craig Williams.
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.
Congratulations and well done to Mark Gaffney, father of Josh Gaffney Flood in Ms Reilly’s S.L.D. class who took part in the Christmas swim and raised €330 for the school. Well done to all the family who helped raise these funds which will be put to good use in the school.
This is our St. Molaga’s sweet collection for North County Outreach. It was collected on the 7th and the 8th November. In Geography we learned about homelessness and how it has increased through out the years.
Ms Sullivan’s fifth class decided to contact North County Outreach to see if we could donate some of our Halloween candy. The next day we all made posters to ask the pupils of St. Molaga’s if they could donate at least one thing from their Halloween bag. Pupils from Ms Sullivan’s 5th class went around the school with notes and posters sharing our idea. In the next few days we collected five big boxes of sweets and treats. On Tuesday, 8th our teach
er drove the collection over to North County Outreach. They were thankful for our donations and we were happy to help with the organisation.

We held a Goal Jersey Day on the 16th September, the Friday before the All Ireland of Dublin v Mayo. We all enjoyed dressing in our favourite jerseys and each pupil was asked to donate to GOAL. We collected €720 and today,Louise from the Goal organisation, visited our school.
In the morning she facilitated two Drama workshops with 6th classes which were great fun and made us think about the work of Goal and life in a developing country. In the afternoon she spoke to 5th & 6th class about the work undertaken by GOAL in countries worldwide. We learned a lot about the work of GOAL and how we helped contribute to it through our donation. We will continue to learn about global citizenship, climate change, migration, the refugee crisis, conflict and natural disasters in our SPHE work in class.
Well done to the Athletics Team who were fantastic today at Newbridge House.

College Awareness Week 2015
On Friday, 27th November 2015, a number of students and teachers from Balbriggan Community College facilitated workshops for pupils in 6th class in St. Molaga’s Senior N.S.
The workshops organised by Ms Buckley and supported by Ms Mannion allowed the 6th class pupils to become aware of the subject choice in post primary and how this can impact on their choice of college courses in the future. The 6th class pupils had opportunities to speak with the second level students about the various subjects and to ask questions about college and their future education.
As part of their work the pupils also researched a second level subject and created a project about their chosen subject. The children have to be commended on the efforts they made and the two winning projects received a special prize.
Parents attended a meeting in the afternoon so that they could also become more College Aware.
We would like to thank Ms Buckley, Ms Mannion and the students from Balbriggan Community college who made this such a successful event.
