As part of being an Active school we are using activity as our rewards. The 5th classes are working hard in order to keep their 5th Class Soccer league going!
We have done 3 days so far!
Our wonderful Junior Boys Gaelic team received a heroes welcome when they returned from playing in the Fingal League final in Abbotstown today. Sadly they did not bring the trophy with them but they played an exceptionally good game against tough opposition (Gaelscoil Brian Boroimhe) and they fought like warriors, never letting their heads go down and making Brain Boroimhe work very hard for every point they scored. The team worked very hard and played some exceptional football to get to the finals, and while the result on the day didn’t go their way, they were wonderful ambassadors for their school and should wear their medals with pride! Many congratulations to: Adam M, Callum J, Jamie M, Sean C, Shane C, Callum T, Ryan T, Adam D, Billy R, C.J M, Sean A, James B, Judge I, Max K, Sean L, Conor M, Daniel N, Callum D, Adam K, Daniel K IMG_5627 and Sean M.
There were reports of a panda playing basketball on yard on Friday. The students of Ms Ferguson’s class reported that she was great at basketball and took a breakto snack on bamboo. She said she would be back for Active Week and that we can call her “Active Panda”!
We had great fun trying out the climbing wall in Balbriggan Community College. It was a little scary when you got to the top!
We spent the day being active and learning all about the subject options!
Check this out for an action shot! We really enjoyed showing off our soccer skills today!

Ar scáth a chéile a mhaireann na daoine!
Tír gan teanga, tír gan anam!!
Yesterday we had a very exciting visit from Redmond O’ Toole. Redmond is a professional guitarist and has played with the Chieftains. He has played in some of the most famous concert halls all over the world. He plays the classical guitar so you might hear him playing some Bach and classical Spanish pieces. He is a teacher with the Royal Irish Academy of Music. His student Marina Kilmurray came with him too and it was cool because she is from Balbriggan! Redmond brought an 8 string guitar and played some wonderful pieces for us!
Leah said “It was fantastic I had never seen a guitar like that before”
Max said “His fingers moved so quick when he was playing”
Killian said “He was good at playing the music”
Adrian said “It was amazing”
Many thanks to Redmond for visiting and to Deborah Kelleher of the Royal Irish Academy of Music for helping to organise this visit!
