This week is Maths Week in our school. The girls are having great fun taking part in art linked to maths, maths trails, shape and space stations, board games, mangahigh and lots more. Every day the girls are doing a brainteaser suitable for their age. Try and incorporate a little maths into your home life- count cars on the way home, sudoka, find different shapes in your home, etc.
Congratulations to Elizabeth O'Connor for her spectacular Spaghetti Bolognaise with a Twist.

Wishing you all a very happy summer. See you again on August 31st.

On Friday 17th January we celebrated our first Intercultural Day. It was a very exciting and special day. Thank you to all the families who helped with the preparation in school and at home with their children, provided food and brought in such wonderful traditional clothes, ornaments and jewellery. This day was only a success because all of you came together and got involved. Here are some photos from the day. If you have any more photos feel free to send them on to me and I can add them to the website.
A huge thank you to Fran Dunne for building all the new planter boxes around our school yard. We all got a great surprise when we came back from the Mid-Term break. They look amazing and we are so excited to get planting! If you have some time to spare and could help the teachers and children with the planting please let me know. We would be delighted to have you join us. You don't need any experience (we are all learning how to garden this year)!
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....
On Tuesday 1st October a group of parent volunteers came in to help slice and dice all the delicious fruit and vegetables for the whole school to taste. There was a wide range of fruit and vegetables to taste - some familiar and some surprises.
Each class came down with their teacher to taste everything and record which ones they liked the most. Take a look at some of the photos here.
On Sunday 20th October the Parents Association organised our annual Family Bingo in the Artane Beaumont Recreation Centre. Once again they outdid themselves with extra tables and chairs being squeezed in to fit all the families. Thank you to all the families and friends who came along to show their support and take part in the fun. And a huge thank you to all the parents who put in so much effort to ensure that the day was a huge success. Many parents who are not on the Parents' Association also volunteered to help out on the day and we are very appreciative that you gave up your time for us. Well done to all the lucky winners on the day!
This is a photo of some of our staff that were out today showing their support for our school secretary. This morning school secretaries across the country stopped work for one hour at the start of the school day, as part of campaign of industrial action for better pay and equality for school secretaries. Aodhán Ó RÍordáin was also there showing his support.
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.
Today 1st and 2nd class went to Lullymore Heritage Park. The girls had a great time visiting the farm, getting a train ride, playing in the indoor and outdoor play areas and a special visit to the fairy forest. Fingers crossed all your wishes come true!
Today 5th and 6th class went to Funtasia. We had a great time in the waterpark and mini golf.
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.

This year the track was made a little bit longer. The whole school have been taking part in the Daily Mile and building up their stamina so were well able for the challenge. Thank you to all the parents who came to support the children and for keeping them cool and motivated with the water guns and bubbles guns. Ms. Clarke and the Parent's Association served up fruit, sandwiches and drinks to keep everyone going.
Today the girls competed in the Field Events of Santry Athletics. A big thank you to Ms. Carr and Ms. Quigg who trained with the girls at lunchtime. Well done to all who took part and a massive shout out to the three girls who brought home medals. We will be taking part in the track events on Thursday so fingers crossed we will bring home more medals.
