Receiving our National Flag

We all went to the hall first thing this morning and two members of the Defence Forces arrived to present us with our national flag and a copy of the Proclamation of the Irish Republic. Dayne welcomed the soldiers to the school. We listened as the Proclamation was read out and Eoin from Sixth Class read out the fourth paragraph. Anastasia and Tina accepted the flag on behalf of the school.

The Minister for Education visits St Molaga’s.

St Molaga’s was very lucky today to receive a visit from the Minister for Education, Jan O’Sullivan. She arrived at the school at nine o’clock this morning and was met by Ms Costello and one of our local TDs, Brendan Ryan.

She met with the teachers first and then with the Student Council who told her all about the work they do in St Molaga’s. Minister O’Sullivan was especially impressed by our Bully Buddy idea and thought it should be in every school! They also talked to her about our prefabs and how badly we need a new school building.

Then Ms Costello showed Minister O’Sullivan around the prefabs. They visited Ms O’Brien’s fourth class and Mr Cloherty’s fifth class. After that, it was off to the hall to hear the choir sing. The visitors especially enjoyed the new verses we added to “My Favourite Things”!

Baking with 5th and 6th class girls.

Muffins
Last Thursday my two friends Sandra and Lauren and I made muffins with Ms. Hegarty. Nicole, Brenda and Ciara from sixth class helped us too. We made muffins in the staff room after big yard. We made the muffins because we had looked at the recipe.
First:
We cleaned the table and the counter. We got all the ingredients we needed to make the choc chip banana muffins. Before we got started we preheated the oven to 210 degrees Celsius.
Then:
We took a bowl and put in all our dry ingredients. We sieved the flour into the bowl and added sugar and chocolate chips. We mixed it all up.
Next:
We melted margarine in a microwave-safe jug and we added vanilla essence, three eggs and milk to the jug. We mashed bananas in a bowl and added them to the jug as well.
After that:
We added our wet ingredients to our dry ingredients and stirred. We greased the flat tray and put our mixture in. We put our cases into the muffin tray. We spooned our mixture into the cases. Ms. Hegarty put them in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes
At the end:
Ms Hegarty removed the muffins from the oven. We all took home 2 muffins .  TINA BO$$

Daffodil Planting

 

IMG_0143On Thursday 11th September we celebrated the enrolment of our new pupils by planting more than 100 daffodil bulbs on our school grounds. This is an annual event and each spring we enjoy the host of golden daffodils and spring flowers which grow around our school.IMG_0115

The pupils also had an opportunity to see the horse chestnut tree which was grown from a chestnut in 1987 and planted just inside the gate as a sapling 25 years ago. This is the first year that the tree has produced horse chestnuts or “conkers” and each class got a chestnut which they can plant. Maybe in another 27 years, the pupils in 2041 will have the opportunity to see the first chestnuts on another tree!
