What a day! – Historic 3/4 BB in OP

IMG_0630What a day!
May 7th will go down in History, not only in our school but in the history of the North Area Basketball League.  It was a first for Ollies to have 3 teams qualify for the Finals, but it was also a first for the the League. It was history in the making as our school became the first to have teams in three of the four Finals.     The atmosphere in Ollies was electric in the lead up to this day of days and the teams lived up to all that was expected from them with two of the three bringing home the silverware and the third team narrowly missing victory by the slimmest of margins.
Congratulations to all involved.  We are so proud of what you have achieved,  For a full report and oodles of pictures, visit A Historic Day in Ollies.

Dogs Trust

Dogs Trust came to our school to talk to us about dogs.

They told us how to approach a dog.

All the classes came from all over the school to learn about Dogs Trust.

Basketball Hat Trick

20140410_104140Congratulations to the Junior Girls, Junior Boys and Senior Girls teams who have reached
the league finals this week.  Already the excitement is felt as we look forward to a great day out in May when all 3 finals will be played on the same day in Clontarf.  This is a day you won’t want to miss.  This is one of those “where were you the day Ollies….”.

This is a first for the school.  We’ve had one team to the Finals, we’ve had two teams
through, but to get three through in one year is certainly a Hat Trick of enormous proportions.  We thought things couldn’t get better back in Nov when the great work of the school was recognised nationally and the 6th class were asked to take part in the making of a video to teach the teachers.  But that was only the start…..

20140308-IMG_6660What an amazing night of fun and laughter and all for a great cause.  Simple words or pictures cannot adequately describe the night.  Those who were there agreed that it will be a long time before the memories will fade.

All proceeds of the night were for the Fingal Dyslexia Workshop which is run in St. Oliver Plunkett School and serves children from our school and the greater Fingal area.  The proceeds will help to fund resources for the children attending, including a set of iPads which will be shared among the students.Organisers of this event, Katie Doyle, Fiona Gavin  20140308-IMG_6632  The Tuesday Night Workshop provides  wonderful service for children and teenagers with Dyslexia.

Fiona Garvin and Katie Doyle , who are the co-ordinator of the Workshop and main organisers of the event, thanked all who had supported the event in any way and said that a great night was had by participants and spectators alike.

A snapshot of the night can be seen in the Gallery.
