The 5th class children from St Molaga’s were invited to visit Balbriggan Community College. The children were split into different coloured groups on arrival. They then, with their group leader, visited the art room to make gory cuts out of paint, glue and plaster, the tech room to look at robots, the science lab to make fire and dissect a lambs heart and finally to their new amazing gymnasium to jump the high jump and climb the climbing wall.
The children got a real flavour of what secondary school in Balbriggan Community College will be like if they chose to go there.
With the fantastic Dave we got the gloves out today.
Exhausting fun was had by all! Huge thanks to BBC again!
Mia, very kindly brought in an egg that her pet bird had laid. Her bird is a conure and its egg is very tiny! It was safely wrapped in a little box and we were very careful when we were looking at it.
We made and decorated 3d butterflies during art this week. We are going make ‘a tree’ for them to rest on! We think they look lovely and colourful.
On Friday evening, we had a Mystery Skype with Amy Murch’s 4th Grade class. They are in Brooks Elementary School in Indiana, USA. They guessed where we are, before we guessed where they were!
We had fun chatting to them after the Skype call. Their school mascot is a bear!
During laptop time on Thursdays, we have been learning how to write code using Scratch.
It’s great fun and we have learnt loads.
An tseachtain seo, fuaireamar dea-scéal ó Chonradh na Gaeilge faoi bheirt as a scoil seo a bhuaigh duaiseanna i gcomórtas ealaíne náisiúnta! During Seachtain na Gaeilge many children in St. Molaga’s did wonderful work in art and writing and there were many prizewinners in our school writing competitions and art – “illustrate a seanfhocal” – competition. Prizes (gift vouchers generously provided by the Parents’ Committee) were awarded to one child from each class for their essays/stories and to one child from each year in art. Winning entries have been on display in the front hall of the school since Seachtain na Gaeilge. Many children from the school also entered their pieces of writing and pictures into the National Competition, and this week two children from St. Molaga’s, Sarah from Ms Carmody’s class and Lena from Ms Leonard’s class, were delighted to receive cheques in the post for coming in 2nd place and 3rd place in the National Seachtain na Gaeilge Art competition! Comhghairdeas de na páistí go léir a ghlac páirt sa chomórtas agus a bhfuair teastais álainn ó Chonradh na Gaeilge.

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.
