Yoga in Fifth Classes

Our fifth classes are currently enjoying a six week yoga course with  their yoga teacher Lynsey Lynn. We would like to thank our Parents Association for funding this initiative which is very beneficial to our pupils. They have learned a number of yoga poses, stretches and relaxation techniques and have really enjoyed the classes. We hope that they continue to practise what they have learned.

Arts Week

We have had a wonderful Arts Week here in school and each day we had different visitors and activities. I would like to thank all the staff, but especially, Ms Hegarty, for the work, organisation and planning that has ensured that every child had a great learning experience this week. Thank you for all the fun!

GAA Blitz

All four 3rd classes have been partaking in GAA lessons with Larissa each week this term. Today, some children had the opportunity to represent their school in a local GAA blitz!

Well done to all who took part!  St. Molaga’s 3rd class students played brilliantly against 3rd class children from local schools.

It was great to see such good sportsmanship from all! Maith sibh!

If any parents are interested in sending their children for additional GAA coaching, O’Dwyers GAA club are always looking for new members!

Here are some pictures of our day!

 

Planting Spring Bulbs

We had our traditional bulb planting today with all our new pupils  in St.Molaga’s Senior N.S. We were delighted that some parents joined us as bulb planting is one of the most enjoyable events in the early months of the new school year.  The pupils learned how to plant the bulbs correctly and are now eagerly awaiting the spring, when they can enjoy the daffodils and tulips to the right of the path as they walk into school. They were amazed to learn that the bulbs will continue to flower long after they have left St. Molaga’s.

Teachers Versus Students Football Game

Today we had two games with the teachers versus a team from third and fourth classes and a game against a team from fifth and sixth classes.

The first game ended level 5-5.  It went to penalties, sudden death.  The students won after two penalties each (1-0)

The second game finished 3-2 to the students after getting a last minute goal.

Everybody enjoyed the day.

Below are some photographs.
