Primary Science Fair

Ms Walsh’s fourth class took part in the Primary Science Fair at the RDS on Saturday, 13th January.

The RDS Primary Science Fair showcases STEM investigations (science, technology, engineering and maths) undertaken by 4th-6th class children. With a core focus on children’s skills development, it brings together teachers, parents and students to showcase class projects, share experiences and learn from each other. The primary science Fair takes place alongside the BT Young Scientist Exhibition.

The fourth class pupils, teachers and parents had a great day at the fair. The children had studied how cranes work and  built a number of model cranes from recyclable materials. Thank you to Fergal, Jodie’s grandad for building us a crane from wood.

The pupils impressed the judges with their knowledge and enthusiasm about cranes and they also taught the  judges some Gaeilge!

During the day in the RDS the children had an opportunity to experience some presentations and films on STEM related subjects. They visited a number of exhibitions and really enjoyed the experience.

Well done to all and a big thank you to Ms Walsh and Ms 0′ Brien for facilitating this work with the children. .

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.
