Well done to our boys' and girls' hockey teams who are currently competing in the Leinster League.

The boys took part in their first game and narrowly lost to Rathgar N.S.

While the two girls' teams took on St Gerard's in very competitive games.

Last week we held the highly anticipated elections for this year's Student Council, Green School's Committee and Active School's Committee.

The children worked hard to plan and write their speeches. They then presented their speeches to the class in a clear, fluent and confident manner using the techniques of persuasive writing they have been practicing. 
The candidates spoke about what made them apply for the position, the reasons they felt they deserved the job and shared some creative ideas they had if they were successful.

Each child voted and the following four successful candidates for this school year were elected:

Student Council - Síofra MacMahon
Green School's Committee - Aoileann O'Mahony and Charlie Savage
Active School's Committee - Rachel O'Dea

Congratulations to everyone who presented a speech and to our new class representatives!

Check out some of our hilarious slow motion action shots from our fantastic Active Week! 

14th Jun 2023

Active Week was filled with many wonderful activities and events which we thoroughly enjoyed here in 4th class. On the first day, we had a 'Throlf' competition as well as taking part in a dance workshop. On Monday, we took part in an Active Walkway which demonstrated our orienteering skills. We visited Clanna Gael on Wednesday to enjoy a Gaelic blitz that was brilliantly organised. On Thursday, the whole school took part in Sports Day which included lots of different activities including races, throwing games, jumping games, tug of war, penalty shootout and many more. On the final day of Active Week, 4th and 5th class played a giant game of rounders which got very competitive! Over the past few weeks, the senior school have completed the 'Daily Mile Challenge' where we ran the length and breadth of Ireland by doing laps of the school grounds each day. We improved every day and challenged ourselves with our pacing. We are a very active community here in St. Mary's!

What a great finish to active week! Dodgeball battle: 6th Class vs. Teachers 

1st Jun 2023

What a day!

We started off with novelty relays, jumping skills, sprinting and relays and on to dodgeball, tug-of-war, throwing hoops and penalties!  Great fun was had by all. Unfortunately, we were so busy, we forgot to take photos until the very end! This was when we tugged again Mr Molloy's.  I think we drew!

St. Mary's, in teams of 11, played in three rounds against some of the local schools at the Clanna Gael Blitz. While the day was all about participation and fun, the children worked hard on passing, throwing and kicking and demonstrated some excellent Gaelic football skills.  It was great to see everyone doing their best.  Well done to the 4th and 5th classes who took part and had a great day!

All the children had such fun and really enjoyed themselves especially when they had to choreograph their own pieces in groups! Some definite movers and shakers were to be seen!

Thank you to the PA for organising the fantastic dance workshops for us.
