Mini All Ireland Tournament

All week there have been mini Gaelic matches going on at breaktimes. All teams had players from Junior Infants up to 3rd class. It was a great way to mix and learn skills from older classes.

The final was on today, Galway vs Monaghan.

It was a very exciting match!

Our supporters were ready

The players were in a parade before the match started.

It was a tight game with Monaghan coming out as the final winners.

The match was very delayed as it was a draw for so long. Apologies to all the Junior and Senior Infant parents who were waiting. We did expect the match and prize giving to be finished by 1.30. Like a typical All-Ireland final that was not the case!

Huge well done to all involved and to Joe, Ger, Ms Brady, Mr Moloney and Mr O Brien for organising the competition.

There were even Irish dancers there to entertain us at half time!

Well done to Monaghan who won and well done to Galway who were winning till the end.

We were very proud of our two players! They represented Junior Infants brilliantly!

4th Sports Tour in UCD

The two 4th classes had the best day ever in UCD. From the minute we got there  we were on the go non stop. It was one of the hottest days of the year and we were so hot but we didn't care because we were having so much fun.  We got to go zorbing and rock climbing. We played lacrosse, we did an obstacle course and so much more - check out our pics.... 

Operation Transformation

The whole school took part in the Operation Transformation '10 at 10' initiative. At 10am everyone did 10minutes of physical activity. 

A huge well done to Ms Brady and her second class who organised the event and demonstrated the Macarena dance for everyone to follow. There were more exercise going on in the senior yard for the older children too!

Check out this week's Bray People to check out some brilliant photos of the morning! 



Active School Flag

On Monday 15th February we raised our Active School Flag.

The whole school were there to see the flag being raised.

We were very lucky that Donal O'Mahony, a gold medallist from the Special Olympics was there to help us raise the flag. Donal attends Lakers Sports and Recreational Club in Bray.

We had children speak about all the activities we did to earn our flag last year.

Lots of children wore special clothes from their local sports teams.

Ruth from the Sports Promotion Unit spoke to us about being active.

It was a super day!

4th Class News

Things have been very busy in 4th class. Well done to the boys from both classes who went to the GAA  blitz in Loughlinstown. They won 2 out of 3 of their matches and did our school proud! Best of luck to the girls who are participating next week. 

This month we are learning all about Australia and The Aborigines. Both classes are working on some beautiful dot paintings inspired by The Aborigines. We have made replicas of the Sydney Opera House too. We are also learning how to do Report Writing and we are enjoying researching all about Australian culture as part of this. 

In science, Ms. Connolly's class have been busy planting and are looking forward to seeing their plants bloom in February. Ms Clarke's class are learning about the digestive system and healthy eating with the help of some experiments.

Finally both classes have been learning the song Do Re Mi from The Sound of Music - click the link to watch a clip from the movie.
