There has been a huge amount of work on folktales for the last 2 years in our school. Grandparents have visited and read stories, plays have been performed, fantastic artwork and 3D models, digital story books have been written and much more. We have learnt about our partner countries Turkey, Greece, Poland, Romania and Italy and their folktales.

June 21, 2018 · Comments Off on #Sports day

Sports day was very fun because we got to go out and about. There was a ice cream van and we got free ice cream. The sports were gaelic, football, spikeball, sponge race and sack race. We had four teams green, white, red and yellow. After we played the activities we did the relays and sprints. After that the 600m race was up. In the 6th and 5th class girls race Eimear won and in the boys Colin won.

End of Year Assembly

June 21, 2018 · Comments Off on End of Year Assembly

Well done on a fantastic year. On Wednesday we had our end of year assembly, highlighting the children’s hard work throughout the year. There was particular mention of the work on folktales for our Erasmus project and the school’s achievement in science, we have been awarded an “Award of STEM Excellence” for the twelfth year in a row. Over half the school have represented us in sporting events and thanks to the teachers who contribute their time during lunch and after school to allow this to happen. We also congratulated all those who have worked on committees, won art, spelling and quiz competitions through out the year. Certificates were presented for outstanding achievement including a brand new “St. Damian’s Hero Award”.  A very successful year and well done to all.

The two 4th Classes went to Tymon Park last Wednesday to try their hand at orienteering. They all learnt to read maps to navigate around the park. Thankfully no one got lost. It was a new activity for the majority of children and they really enjoyed the experience.

Ms. Shaffi from 2nd class entered a competition with Irish Ferries and won the prize of €1000 for the school. What a great surprise! One of the things we decided to do was to bring an ice cream van to sports day to cool everyone down after all their hard work. It was a lovely treat welcomed by all,  even some grandparents!
