6th class each completed a project on an individual of their choice who has overcome a significant challenge in their life or who faces a significant challenge daily in their life. They created their projects using Google Slides and then presented them to the class.
The individuals chosen by 6th class such as Ellen Keane, Messi, Walt Disney (to name a few) are all examples of role models we can look up to. We felt very inspired when listening to everyone’s project.
Take a look at the projects below.
We recently started playing tag rugby in school. We are really enjoying it thanks to our fantastic coaches from Leinster Rugby!
6th Class entered St. Francis Hospice’s poetry competition ‘Our Value’s in Verse’ recently. They were asked to compose a poem which reflected on one or more of the following core values: dignity, respect, compassion, collaboration, excellence and kindness. Ms. Kidd was delighted to receive an email that Grace, Conor B.G and Conor C’s poems had been longlisted, along with Hannah and Frank’s poems in Ms. Jones’ class. Their poems will be displayed in St. Francis Hospice.
We look forward to hearing who makes the shortlist next week!
Take a read of their poems here.
A big well done to 6th class on their very successful coffee morning in aid of the Irish Cancer Society on Daffodil Day, 25th March. 6th class did an amazing job at organising and hosting the morning. We are proud to say we raised in excess of €900 for a very worthy cause.
6th class were learning all about rivers in geography and science recently. We decided a good way to learn about rivers was to investigate one very close to our school – Santry River. 6th class used their geographical and scientific skills such as observing, questioning, investigating, analysing and recording.
