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).
We had a visit on Friday from Eimer. She is a marine biologist. She works with sharks and seahorses. We learned a lot about sharks and we got the chance to handle some artifacts. Click on the link to see some pictures.
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.
The 5th class children from St Molaga’s were invited to visit Balbriggan Community College. The children were split into different coloured groups on arrival. They then, with their group leader, visited the art room to make gory cuts out of paint, glue and plaster, the tech room to look at robots, the science lab to make fire and dissect a lambs heart and finally to their new amazing gymnasium to jump the high jump and climb the climbing wall.
The children got a real flavour of what secondary school in Balbriggan Community College will be like if they chose to go there.
We did a SVP food appeal for the homeless and people who wouldn’t have a Christmas dinner .We were asked to bring food in, at least one item. We had to bring it in for December 16th. As a class we made posters to remind every class about the food appeal. We hung posters around the school. The posters had to have 16th of December on them as that was the final date to bring in the food. On the posters we had lists of items that we could bring in. We sent people from our class around the school to remind everyone one more time. We had to remind them that the food had to have a non-perishable items and a good Best-before date. Our collection was very successful we got hundredss of items, and people from the SVP came to collect all of the food. They were delighted with all we had collected and we were happy to help.
This Christmas we did lots of art for Christmas. First we made snowflakes and paper chains. Our Teacher split the class and one group made snowflakes and the other made the chains. The snowflakes were WAY harder than the chains. Next Adam put up the Christmas tree for our class when he was done our Teacher called us up to put baubles on the tree. Then every class was asked to make a canvas for the hall. We did two canvas’s one was of Santa going over a town in his sleigh the other was of the North Pole. We also made Christmas cards and we made decorations for the Christmas tree by cutting up old cards. We really enjoyed doing this art..
