Pat Browne Rugby Cup

6th Class boys and girls took part in the qualifying round of the Pat Browne cup (a tag rugby competition) in Balbriggan Rugby Club on Friday 4th May 2018. They played matches against other schools in the area. The team, captained by Shannon, put on a number of excellent performances to book the school a place in the final which will take place some evening in the next few weeks – date to be decided. All participants were awarded medals at the end of the day and St Molaga’s team were jubilant to get to the finals and to be given the chance to keep the Pat Browne Cup in our trophy cabinet for the coming year! Congratulations in particular to Charlie on his first time to wear the St Molaga’s jersey and represent his school in a sporting event! Well done to all the children for their excellent sportsmanship in congratulating all participating teams, and especially St. Georges who gave us a real run for our money in the final match! We are looking forward to the final in the coming weeks.

Check out these short video clips of the action on the day:



Sporting Success and Fun

We have had great sporting success and fun in St Molaga’s school this term, from our terrific junior boys’ success in Parnell Park last week to enjoyable and successful outings such as the recent 5th/6th class Football blitz, yesterday’s most enjoyable 3rd/4th class Hurling blitz and of course the great success of  our 5th/6th class rugby team beating other schools in the area to win the Pat Browne perpetual trophy for Rugby earlier this term. Great credit is also due to our senior boys gaelic team and the girls gaelic team who played so well and showed such wonderful team spirit in their league matches as well as the Athletics team who distinguished themselves by their excellent performances  in Santry.

Comhghairdeas libh go léir!

Many classes have participated in Sports with external trainers this year; in GAA, thanks to Barry who does wonderful work year on year with the children in our school, in soccer, which was a great hit with the 6th and the 4th classes, and in rugby, where Paul did a great job with all class levels as well as having an inter-class blitz with the 4th classes. Cycling was a most beneficial and enjoyable addition to the P.E timetable for 6th class earlier in the year and the Sports Conditioning programme was of huge benefit to our third classes this term also. Many thanks to all the trainers who have shared their expertise with our class teachers this year.


Sports days have of course started too, with 4th classes having a great day last week. 5th and 6th classes are raring to go tomorrow and 3rd classesare looking forward to their day (hopefully in the sun!) next week.

Many children have been involved this week in a most enjoyable in-school soccer blitz organised by Ms Walsh. Children from 3rd and 4th classes played against each other and likewise, children from 5th and 6th classes. to declare a winning team at each level. There will be great excitement tomorrow when the winning 5th/6th class team plays a team of teachers as part of the 5th/6th class sports day!

Please God we will have some good weather this summer and children from St Molaga’s will be outside as much as possible playing sports with friends from school and the wider community and practicing all the skills they have been working on this year!

We have had a great Seachtain na Gaeilge in St Molaga’s! Over the last couple of weeks we have done many activities in class such as Irish dancing, listening to traditional Irish music and taking part in different activities though Irish such as quizzes. Some classes have been on a visit to the Gaelscoil and had an amazing day and other classes will be hosting visiting classes from the Gaelscoil next week and after Easter to participate in activities together through Irish.

The above photo shows the winners of our writing competition (Comórtas Scríbhneoireachta Sheachtain na Gaeilge). Their terrific poems and stories will be on display in the hall over the next few weeks. Well done to all children who participated and Comhghairdeas Mór to all our buaiteoirí!

Third class was a good year for us.  We learnt lots of new things like multiplication and division in Maths. We learnt a lot of Irish. We liked having the computers as we didn’t have that in 2nd class. We like our new principal and Ms de Faoite.

We went to the beach on a trip a few weeks ago and we collected shells. At the beach Travis dug a hole near the sea and found lots of water in the end of it.

Next week we are going on our school tour to the Causey Experience up in County Meath and we will be doing our sports day next week. We are looking forward to our school tour!

We can’t wait to meet our new teacher on Wednesday!

Mathletics, Library and Daffodils!

We have had a great week this week. We had a trip to the Balbriggan library where we borrowed some books and teacher got an audio cd of a story by Jacqueline Wilson for us to listen to next week. We also planted daffodil bulbs and we are going to plant acorns and conkers next week that hopefully will sprout in the spring! The most exciting thing of all was getting registered for Mathletics on Tuesday. We did activities on Mathletics for homework every night this week and managed to earn 86,000 points for our class. We worked our way up into 7th place and then today into 4th place in Ireland of all the Mathletics schools!!! Jenna, Alex B and Lakshik got up into the top 30 students in Ireland at 1st, 2nd and 19th place! Our teacher said we were just brilliant and let us watch a dvd this evening as a reward for all our hard work. We are very proud of ourselves. Our student of the week this week is…. Jenna! Well done to her!

Cool School

We like running and we can play football. We watch  matches in our new school.  We also do art.  We can go  home  by  ourselves  or  with our friends  and  sometimes   we  go  to the shops  and  buy  chocolate  bars  and  crisps on our way home.   I think we get easy homework.

We experimented with floating and sinking

Today we had to estimate whether different things would float or sink. We brought basins to our desk to test them out. First we had to write down our estimates and then we tested them out. We found out that floating and sinking had nothing to do with how light or heavy something was, or how big or small it was, but it had to do with what material the things were made of. Pencils and lollipop sticks and apples floated, and also plastic things like pen tops and lids of pritt stick,  but metal things and rubbers sank and paper only floated until it got very wet and then it sank. Here are some pictures of our experiments:
