On Wednesday we went on a bus trip to the Lifetime Lab. It was the first time our class made a trip together to the Lifetime Lab. We did two activities. The first one was a hand-eye coordination activity. A buzzer would light up on a board and we had to press the correct number. We were competing against ourselves and trying to break our own record. Our second activity was a memory game. We had to remember a number sequence and then repeat it. We really enjoyed our trip to the Lifetime Lab for Science Week! (composed by Rang a Trí)
Today the boys braved the cold for their first basketball session with coach Ronan. The boys practiced dribbling, different throwing skills and catching. We look forward to the next couple of weeks of basketball coaching.
Every month two boys are selected from the student body for demonstrating the qualities that we try to instill in our pupils, which include respect, politeness, kindness, caring, perseverance, self-motivation, honesty and tolerance.
These two boys demonstrate these characteristics on a daily basis and we were delighted to present them with the two awards
Hot chocolate and chats for all the boys who received the Principal’s Awards in the last three weeks. Well done boys for your constant politeness, respect and good manners. You have also displayed diligence, perseverance and hard work in the last few weeks. We are very proud of you. Maith sibh!
Beidh an Cluiche Ceannais Sciath na Scol ar siúl Dé Chéadaoin ar ceathrú tar éis a dó dhéag i bPáirc Uí Rinn. Imreoidh foireann na scoile in aghaidh Baile Nóra. D’imríomar in aghaidh Baile Nóra cheana féin i mbliana agus bhuamar an cluiche. Is foireann an-mhaith iad agus beidh orainn sár iarracht a dhéanamh chun an cluiche a bhuacaint! Níor chaill foireann peile na scoile aon cluiche riamh i mbliana. Tá sceitimíní an domhain orainn go léir. Táimíd ag tnúth go mór leis an cluiche agus táimíd saghas neirbhíseach freisin. Rachaidh gach dalta ó rang a 1 go dtí rang a 6 go dtí an cluiche. Tá bród an domhain ar gach dalta agus múinteoir as foireann na scoile. Josies abú!
Our Sciath na Scol team are playing against Ballinora today in the finals. We are very excited and look forward to kick off at 12.15pm in Páirc Uí Rinn.
