Our poetry Monday was based on the theme Happy New Year this week. As usual, we worked with a poetry partner to come up with a poem based on the theme, then we read them to the class and for this week we typed them out to display. We have very talented poets in 5th class as you will read...
Big thank you to Aoife our Drama teacher for preparing these poems with 5th class. We performed them on stage today for 3rd class and 6th class
Yesterday, after weeks of preparation, 5th and 6th class had their first debate of the school year. The motion was "Social media is a force for good." Each class had a team for and against the motion. The standard was so high and I want to congratulate all who took part. We look forward to having more debates in 2020. Thank you to Ms Kiernan who was our adjudicator and who gave great feedback and advice to our teams for the future debates.
We had a lovely morning giving and receiving thoughtful presents from our Secret Santas!
I was completely blown away by the presentations given by 5th class yesterday as part of the Junior Entrepreneur process. You gave Ms Purcell, Ms Murphy and Ms Fahy a very difficult decision to make. I want to thank our three judges who made up our "Dragon's Den" panel. A particular thank you to Sadhbh Fahy who came in and gave our budding entrepreneurs great advice and lots of inspiration. Thank you Sadhbh! Congratulations to Matteo who presented our winning product and we look forward to selling it to you all in 2020! Bravo 5th Class!
Huge congratulations to Lucy, Diana and Daniel who represented St. Mary's in the Division 1 of the Leinster Schools Chess Association Primary League 2019-20.
In spite of being the only first-timers in the competition, St Mary's achieved a tie for fourth place, which was an excellent result.
They will now take part in the Shield competition in February and we wish them the very best of luck!
We are all very proud of you! Well Done!
What a treat to see Maebh and Molly on the television! They were singing with Cór na Nóg on RTE last Friday at the RTE Christmas tree lighting ceremony. Bravo girls!
Ms Kelly's 5th Class
You are capable of amazing things!
