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.
The school has experienced the sudden death of Craig Williams, a pupil in sixth class due to an accident while on holiday. We are deeply saddened by the death of Craig. Our thoughts are with his family at this time. Craig was a popular member of our school, of Ms McMahon’s Sixth class and a good friend. He enjoyed sports and loved to play football and basketball with his class at lunch. Craig was also a talented member of our school choir. He had a great sense of fun and always had a great big smile on his face. Craig will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by all pupils and staff in St. Molaga’s.
As part of Walk to School Week, our school will feature on the RTE2 televison programme News2day. The programme will be on Thursday 16th May at 4.25pm. You can watch it after today on the RTE player.
