There was great excitement in the school this morning with the ‘Easter Bonnet’ parade.
Lots of boys and girls had created Easter themed hats and they were so proud of all their efforts as they ‘paraded’ around the school. It ends our term as we now look forward to the Easter holidays. We wish everybody a happy, safe and holy Easter and we look forward to seeing all the boys and girls for the Summer term in two weeks time.
On Tuesday 24th
March the girls 5-a-side soccer team competed in the Dublin finals in Irishtown. Twenty six
schools took part in the competition and the first stage was a league section where we won four matches and drew one. No goals were conceded during this league section and some cracking goals were scored! We then moved on to the knock-out stages winning our quarter-final against Rathcoole to qualify for a semi-final against St Annes Shankill. This was the team that we had drawn with in the group stages and, once again, it was a tough close match with the score being nil all at the end of normal time. On to the dreaded penalties and the first penalty for Shankill was superbly saved by Aoife McLoughney. This gave us a great boost and we went on to win the shoot-out. Our opponents in the final were Presentation Terenure and another great performance saw us win 2-1 to be crowned Dublin champions. We look forward to representing Dublin in the Leinster finals in Meath at the end of April.
Big congratulations to all the girls involved; Aoife McLoughney, Emma Brady, Kirsten Hall, Kaitlyn Fitzgerald, Katie O’Sullivan, Erica Egan and Sophie Law.

After Easter the school will be welcoming a group of teachers and students from our Comenius partner schools in Europe. Plans are at an advanced stage for the week long visit to Malahide. The group will be visiting our classes and enjoying cultural visits in the afternoon.
We are hoping to give them a chance to experience our music and games as well. There is a colourful display highlighting the four visiting countries – Wales, Denmark, Sweden and France – in the main lobby of the school. We are looking forward to giving our European friends a real Céad Míle Fáilte.
