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.
Sports Day was another great success. The children really enjoyed all the activities- rounders, playground games, novelty races, ball skills, obstacle course, yoga and benchball. The Senior classes also enjoyed Ultimate Frisbee. A big thank you to the parents association for the lovely treat of the ice cream van coming to visit our school.
The girls have a fabulous week ahead full of fun and games. Hopefully the sun will continue to shine.

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.
World champion Caradh O'Donovan came in to visit us here at St. John of God NS. She coached the girls in a variety of exercises that she says are the key to keeping our bodies strong and healthy. She also spoke to us about how we should never give up on our dreams! We are certainly going to take her advice as Caradh has represented Ireland in 3 sports and is now training really hard to compete in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Have a look at some of our photos from this special training session.
Check out this tweet from Caradh after she came to visit! We are so happy to see she enjoyed being at our school!
It's that time of the year again! The Cumann na mBunscoil Football league is starting next week. Our first match is Wednesday 13th September against Gaelscoil Chomcille in Whitehall.

The first and second class took part in violin lessons with Mrs. Breen after school. We are all looking forward to hearing them perform at the concert tomorrow.
