School Concert

Our drama teacher Sarah Brennan takes all classes on a Wednesday for 30 minutes per session. Drama is essential for building confidence, and a sense of team work in children. We have a great tradition of performing fantastic musicals, where the children get the opportunity to shine on stage. A tremendous amount of hard work and dedication go into preparing the children for the concert. The committment of the Speech and drama teacher, class teachers and children alike are rewarded on the performance days and night, at the end of the year in June. Previous plays include The Wizard of Oz, Bugsy Malone, Guys and Dolls and Oklahoma all of which drew high praise indeed. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Art Exhibition

The art exhibition takes place in the school hall in June. It is a much loved event, as the children get to display their creative pieces and reflect on the artwork of others. Each class has their own display area in the hall which is put together by volunteers on the parents council. The hall is transformed for two days into a work of art! Parents can attend the event with their child at a time that suits them during the day, or in the evening between 6 and 7pm. An excellent art website to browse is http://www.iamanartist.ie/index.aspx

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

St. Patrick's Day

We have a tradition of performances of an Irish cultural nature in the school. We gather in the hall for the afternoon to have great fun appreciating the many elements of culture and tradition. The children perform for each other with set dancing, Irish dancing and song singing. This event often takes place as part of Seachtain na Gaeilge, which focuses on the Irish language use in the school.

Annual book fair

The scholastic book company come to the school once a year to offer the children an opportunity to buy books, which we strongly encourage to enhance our literacy standards. We greatly encourage the children to read as often as possible for pleasure.

School Walk

The school walk is an annual event which takes place in the first term of school. It is a 5km walk around the Walkinstown area. Parents, children, and teachers walk to raise funds for the school which is collected by the children as they are sponsored for the walk. It is an opportunity for the community to get together to raise funds for the school. These funds are essential for buying resources, and upkeep of the school.

Sports Day

Sports day takes place at the end of the school year. The children have the opportunity of taking part in fast and slow paced activities, which include, basketball, skipping, sprints, tag rugby, parachute games, a quiz and art session.

Mobile Farm

The mobile farm comes to the school to raise awareness, and educate the children about the many animals that you would find on a farm The children get the opportunity to listen to the sounds the animals make, feed some of the animals, and look at mothers with their offspring. The mobile farm is organised by a group called agri aware. Visit www.agriaware.ie for more information.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Board games day

This is another annual event in the school which takes place on the afternoon of the last day before the Halloween break. The children bring in €2 and a board game to raise funds for a charity. For the last two years we have donated our collection to the Crumlin Children's Hospital. For the past two years we have been asked to promote the Board games day on T.V.3's Ireland a.m. Two children from each class were chosen to go to the Ireland a.m. studio to create awareness and highlight the importance of the event.
