Congratulations to the girls and boys basketball teams who won their finals in Tallaght Arena recently.
Mr. Quinn and Ms. Ryan put in a lot of work and time into training their teams and we would like to thank them for their time and effort.
We would not have been able to play the matches without the many parents who drove. Thanks to all!
On the 15th November Fourth Class were invited to St. Mary's School for a very fun workshop with Dave's Jungle. At St. Mary's we saw many different animals including a tarantula, a rat snake, and an Alligator Snapping Turtle. We would like to thank St. Mary's for this great opportunity!
Dave explained how the animals hunt, how they perceive the world, how they use their senses, what they eat, how they eat and how they catch their prey. Fourth Class then have the unique experience of handling and touching crocodiles, tarantulas, snakes and large lizards.
Irrational phobias are developed through childhood and come to full fruition in adulthood, by exposing children before they develop fears they can then appreciate how wonderful the animals are.
The children in 5th and 6th Class in St.Laurence's have been training hard over the past two months to be able to complete the run a marathon challenge in association with Marathon Kids Ireland. The classes had to take part in four running sessions a week in school.
The students ran their final mile in Santry on Wednesday 14th November 2018. Well done to all who took part and represented our school in Santry.
Please be advised that Science and Engineers week will be celebrated in our school in January.
