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:
Bhí taispeántas rince againn i gceolchoirm Sheachtain na Gaeilge chomh maith!
Maith thú Iveta as rang a 3!
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!!
Comghairdeas le na páistí seo a leanas a bhuaigh duais sa chomórtas Póstaer Sheachtain na Gaeilge. Rinne gach páiste póstaer álainn bunaithe ar seanfhocal.

Tá Seachtain na Gaeilge ar siúl inár scoil an tseachtain seo. Tháinig bean deas darbh ainm Bríd isteach sa scoil agus rinne sí rince gaelach linn. D’fhoghlaimíomar damhsaí cosúil le “Ciorcal le trí” agus “The Rakes”.
Bhí an-spórt go deo againn agus bhíomar traochta ina dhiadh!!
Táimid ag céiliúradh Seachtain na Gaeilge i scoil Naomh Mhologa an tseachtain seo.
Dé Luain tháinig beirt chailín isteach agus sheinn siad ceol deas traidisiúnta dúinn ar uirlislí difriúla: an giotár, an fhidil, an fheadóg stáin agus an bodhrán. Bhí an ceol go hálainn agus bhaineamar go léir an-taitneamh as! Seo cúpla griangrafanna a thugamar.
Last Wednesday, Peter Gunning visited the school to speak to the 6th class students. Peter is the author of the novel Reaching the Heights, a novel which all of the 6th classes have enjoyed reading this year. Peter Gunning spoke to the children about the writing process, the inspiration for his characters and his thoughts about Reaching the Heights and the other novels he has written (including Stanley!).
Peter also read an extract from the book and used a wonderful Cork accent to add to his dramatic reading! The children asked some very insightful questions and really enjoyed the visit. Thanks to Ms. Murphy for contact Peter to organise the talk.
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.
Third classes are a frenzy of wings, sunhats, drums, stars and candy canes this week as all the children and teachers sing their hearts out and prepare for next week’s performances of “Children of the World”.
Looking forward to seeing lots of parents and grandparents at our shows on
Tuesday (Ms Geraghty/Ms Brennock/Ms Kiely) and on Wednesday (Ms Carmody/Ms Sullivan/Ms Kiely).
Santa has arrived early to Fourth Classes. Following our very successful Book Fair before Halloween, we received lots of new shiny books this week. Each 4th class has added this selection to their existing class libraries. Happy Reading!
Thanks to all parents who supported the book fair and our school libraries. Ms Hegarty
5th Class children from St. Molaga’s have been working very hard with Larissa over the last number of weeks, improving their Gaelic Football skills. Yesterday, three teams of children from 5th class got to practice these skills when they took part in a Gaelic Football blitz, with each team playing 5 games against children from Scoil Chormaic, the Gaelscoil, Bracken Ed Tog., Balbriggan Ed. Tog. and St. Georges. They wore the St Molaga’s jerseys with pride and it was great to see them playing so well and showing great sportsmanship! Well done to all the children who took part, both in the blitz today and in the training sessions over the last number of weeks! J
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!
Well done to all our pupils who contributed to the collection this morning. The collection of sweets and treats are from our pupils’ Halloween stash from Trick or Treat. All of the treats will be donated to the North County Outreach who will distribute them to those in need on their Saturday soup run in Dublin.
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!
