Goal Jersey Day

goal
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.

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.

Biodiversity Day !

We held our Biodiversity day in the Halla on Friday 15th. It was a fantastic display of all the hard work done by all the classes.

There were lots of projects on display covering a wide range of topics including, biomes, bunnies, bees and birds!

Well done to the Green School Committee for all their hard work over the last two years.

Later in the afternoon we held our National Spring Clean. All the classes took part and collected lots of rubbish.

Sean and Callum even found €5 !  You can see some pictures of the day in the videos below. There are also some pictures on Balbriggan.info.

Quadblogging

This year our class are taking part in Quadblogging.  We will be blogging with three other schools. The schools are:

St. Patricks Catholic Voluntary Acedemy (in Sheffield, UK) with Mr. Hopper’s Class. Their blog is http://www.st-patricks.sheffield.sch.uk/quadblogging-in-the-autumn-term/

Saigon South International School, (Vietnam) with Mr. Bertoia’s Class. Their blog is http://blog.ssis.edu.vn/middle-school/

Queen Eleanor’s Primary School (Milton Keynes, UK) with Mr. Reetz’s class. Their blog is http://qeps.primaryblogger.co.uk/category/year-6/

Each school has a blog and we will comment on each other’s blog entries.

Quadblogging is a great way to learn about the work and learning that goes on in other schools. We are hoping to share some of our writing with the other classes.

The other classes will be commenting on our blog for the next two weeks. So we better get busy!

Why don’t you check out the other schools and see what you can find out about them. Just click on the links above.
