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.
Well done to all our pupils who contributed to the collection this morning. The collection of sweets and treats are from our pupils’ Halloween stash from Trick or Treat. All of the treats will be donated to the North County Outreach who will distribute them to those in need on their Saturday soup run in Dublin.

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.
We are delighted to have five sets of twins with us in St. Molaga’s S.N.S. this year.
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.

We were delighted to have a visit from two Garda and their horses, Donnagh and Oscar today.

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.
