We were delighted to welcome the girls from the Sars U14 Féile team this afternoon. The team recently won the All-Ireland with a number of players winning it for the third year running! We were thrilled to see so many past pupils on the team. We were very surprised and delighted to receive our own award from the team in recognition of our 2-in-a-Row Sciath na Scol victories in recent years!
We were delighted to have a visit from the Fire Brigade this week. They set a chip pan on fire in the yard and showed us the scary effect water has on an oil fire. We learned that every house should have a fire blanket in the kitchen in case of emergencies!
We are so privileged to have had the Army Band visit us again this Christmas for a morning of movie themes and festive tunes. We always love to see them arriving and pupils and staff alike both greatly enjoyed the show. A huge thank you to the whole band, particularly their conductor Noel Galvin, for joining us today!
We were all delighted to have a visit from the London Chamber Brass Quintet this week. They entertained us for over an hour with exciting music and lots of audience participation. We learned all about their instruments and even how to conduct! The musicians were very impressed when we managed to identify all of the film scores correctly!
Baby Alana and her mum called in recently to collect the cheque for money raised during our non-uniform day. Alana’s cousins are pupils in Scoil Chill Ruadhain and her sister is a past pupil. We were delighted to give our support and to meet Alana.

We were delighted to support World Down Syndrome Awareness Day again this year. Speakers came to speak to the children about Down Syndrome and everyone wore brightly coloured odd socks!
We had great fun getting ready for Christmas this year! Here is a small selection of photos from the last few days. To see more pictures please visit the class blogs!
