Happy Christmas to everyone in St. Molaga’s S.N.S.
We had a great morning at our annual class performances. Well done to all the children, teachers and SNAs who have worked so hard. We really enjoyed the fun and entertainment.
Have a very Happy Christmas everyone and a well earned rest.
See you all next year on the 8th January.
We were climbing on the climbing wall, having lots of fun!
On Monday, the school had some very special visitors. Dublin footballers Dean Rock and Eric Lowndes brought the Sam Maguire cup into the school.
We all went to the hall first thing this morning and two members of the Defence Forces arrived to present us with our national flag and a copy of the Proclamation of the Irish Republic. Dayne welcomed the soldiers to the school. We listened as the Proclamation was read out and Eoin from Sixth Class read out the fourth paragraph. Anastasia and Tina accepted the flag on behalf of the school.
Several of the Children achieved a participation award for Balbriggan’s Library Reading Buzz during the Summer Holidays.
St Molaga’s was very lucky today to receive a visit from the Minister for Education, Jan O’Sullivan. She arrived at the school at nine o’clock this morning and was met by Ms Costello and one of our local TDs, Brendan Ryan.
She met with the teachers first and then with the Student Council who told her all about the work they do in St Molaga’s. Minister O’Sullivan was especially impressed by our Bully Buddy idea and thought it should be in every school! They also talked to her about our prefabs and how badly we need a new school building.
Then Ms Costello showed Minister O’Sullivan around the prefabs. They visited Ms O’Brien’s fourth class and Mr Cloherty’s fifth class. After that, it was off to the hall to hear the choir sing. The visitors especially enjoyed the new verses we added to “My Favourite Things”!
A big thank you to the Transition Year Students from Loreto School Balbriggan. They have helped our class teachers over the last few months. Below are some photos of their final day in our school.
Last Thursday my two friends Sandra and Lauren and I made muffins with Ms. Hegarty. Nicole, Brenda and Ciara from sixth class helped us too. We made muffins in the staff room after big yard. We made the muffins because we had looked at the recipe.
We cleaned the table and the counter. We got all the ingredients we needed to make the choc chip banana muffins. Before we got started we preheated the oven to 210 degrees Celsius.
We took a bowl and put in all our dry ingredients. We sieved the flour into the bowl and added sugar and chocolate chips. We mixed it all up.
We melted margarine in a microwave-safe jug and we added vanilla essence, three eggs and milk to the jug. We mashed bananas in a bowl and added them to the jug as well.
We added our wet ingredients to our dry ingredients and stirred. We greased the flat tray and put our mixture in. We put our cases into the muffin tray. We spooned our mixture into the cases. Ms. Hegarty put them in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes
At the end:
Ms Hegarty removed the muffins from the oven. We all took home 2 muffins . TINA BO$$
How to make a paper mache snowman

Well done to all our pupils who took part in the Balbriggan Library Reading Buzz during the summer. Each child received a homework pass and a treat from us for continuing to read during the summer. We are very proud of your great work!
