Children get moving!

It’s lovely to see the sun today as we have had so many rainy days recently! It can be hard for children to be cooped up in the classroom when they can’t get out.
Lots of the classes have started doing Active Breaks in the classroom especially on wet days.
Many classes are using GoNoodle which has some great dances and movement breaks.
Here are pictures of some of the classes getting active on rainy days:

A few more clips of our great concert for Seachtain na Gaeilge today. The 5th classes did a lovely version of Óró sé do bheatha bhaile with percussion, chime bars, guitars and keyboard, and the Junior choir sang Raglin Road and the Foggy Dew beautifully. You can download the following clips to have a listen:

Comhghairdeas le gach rang a ghlac páirt i gceolchoirm Sheachtain na Gaeilge.

Bhí dánta, ceol, amhráin agus rince le fáil. Bhí na páistí go léir go hiontach ar fad! Go raibh mile maith agaibh do na múinteoirí agus páistí go léir  – chuir sibh an-obair go deo isteach sa cheolchoirm!

Go raibh maith agat do Michael freisin, a d’ullmhaigh an stáitse agus do Gill agus Colette a chroch suas na póstaeir a rinne na páistí chun an halla a mhaisiú.

Ar scáth a chéile a mhaireann na daoine!

Tír gan teanga, tír gan anam!!

Friendship Week

For the last week, we have been celebrating Friendship Week in St Molaga’s. Each class studied poems about friendship and made a special effort to be nice to one another! Some classes made friendship chains and friendship bracelets, while others wrote poems about friendship.

Throughout the week, the children collected Friendship Tokens when they were seen being friendly and polite. Everyone made a great effort to win as many tokens as possible. Here are the children who received a certificate for being the most friendly and courteous in their class.

Visit of the Sam Maguire and Brendan Martin cups

Pupils in St. Molaga’s school were thrilled to get a chance to view the Sam Maguire and Brendan Martin cups recently when members of the winning Dublin Gaelic Football Men’s and Ladies’ teams brought the coveted silverware to the school. On both occasions, children impressed the team members by their excellent questions during Q&A sessions in the hall. Team members were accompanied by Larissa Muldoon from our local GAA club and indeed both team players emphasised how much they had been influenced to take up Gaelic football when it was introduced to them in school by representatives from their local clubs. Indeed perhaps some of the pupils present in our school hall will be bringing back the cups as team members themselves in the future!

Arts Week – Art Exhibition

All the classes in St. Molaga’s SNS worked extremely hard on making artwork based on different artists. Our work was displayed altogether in our very own art “museum” – our school hall! Today, we had the chance to look at and discuss some of the brilliant artwork created by all the classes from 3rd to 6th.

Ms Geraghty’s class studied the abstract artist Wassily Kandinsky – a Russian abstract artist from the 20th century. We hope everyone enjoyed the day and liked our abstract art!

We really enjoyed looking at everyone’s artwork. St. Molaga’s has a lot of very talented artists!!

School Football Blitz 2017

On the 20th of June, the school had a football blitz with the 5th and 6th class teams. The winning team will play against the teachers next week. Here are some photographs taken of the football blitz.

Goal Jersey Day

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.all-ireland

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.

Save

Craig Williams

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.
