A huge congratulations to the football team and their wonderful coaches Ms. Gerrard, Ms. Carr and Ms. Shannon who have been training the girls and preparing them for this momentous occasion. Thank you to all the supporters who travelled to Croke Park on the day to cheer them on. A big thank you also to the parent volunteers who made headbands for the entire school, came in to do face paints on the supporters and style the football teams' hair. You added so much to the day with your enthusiasm and generosity. Thank you! Take a look at the photos from the day....
Prize Giving is always a fabulous assembly in our school. The wonderful achievements of the girls over the year are acknowledged with medals and certs. We had prizes for football team, soccer team and athletics squad, the choir who performed at Peace Proms, the Ukulele & Recorder group and our young chefs who completed the cookery course. The 6th Class girls were also presented with their end of year attendance prizes. Well done to all the girls and teachers involved.
This year we are focussing on school attendance and to kick start it we took part in the Every School Day Counts Poster Competition which was run by Tusla and CYPSC. Two of our girls, Saibhín and Sophie won the overall school prize - A Family Pass to the cinema each. There were also 2 winners from each participating class receiving a homework pass each. As a special treat each class that took part also won a box of chocolates. Well done girls! See you in school EVERYDAY!
We had very special visitors in our school today! Our senior girls began training in Tag Rugby and even got to play in Aviva Stadium. A big thank you to our coach Ray for bringing it in to show us.
A huge congratulations to the girls in Sixth Class who today received their Speech and Drama exam awards. Four girls in the class had all their certificates and received great results in their drama exams throughout their 8 years in St. John of God G.N.S. It is because of this that they received a very special Medal from Ms. Noone. One of the girls received a trophy as she received distinction in all of her exams! A huge well done to each and every one of the girls and to all the girls in the younger classes, make sure you mind all your certificates very carefully so when you are in Sixth Class you may receive a medal too!
