‘Blue Day’ Friday

This is All-Ireland Week and tomorrow Friday our school is having a ‘blue’ day in support of Dublin’s senior footballers taking part in the All Ireland Football final VS Mayo on Sunday in Croke Park. This Sundays game promises to be a great contest. Can Dublin win three in a row?

From all of us in Ollies:

Book week a great success!

Our book week in the school was a huge success.

Lots of fun activities, authors, plays and especially lots of reading. We all had a lovely time and it has made us want to read more as a hobby, for fun and when we want to relax.

Here are some photos from the day we dressed up as characters from our favorite books.

Great end to Seachtain na Gaeilge in Ollies


It was Lá Glas today in our school to end what has been an incredible Seachtain na Gaeilge. We had a big Céili in the hall with all the classes and some our students who actually do Irish dancing were able to treat us to some performances. It was great seeing all the students and teachers dressed in green and we wish everybody a Happy St. Patrick’s Day.

Seachtain na Gaeilge

Dia Dhaoibh go léir ó halla na scoile. Bhí an lá againn inniu.Bhí seo faisin mór ar siúl sa halla i rith an lae agus bhí an craic ann.

Seachtain na Gaeilge is continuing to be a huge success in our school ending this St. Patrick’s day. It has been a great week so far with the children (and parents) photo(7)putting all of their frásaí into practice. It is wonderful to see the Irish language alive and well in St. Oliver Plunkett School. We are having  quizzes, treasure hunts, PE lessons, art classes, concerts,fashion shows, circle times, plays and lots more all trí gaeilge. Thank you to all the mams and dads for all your support and encouragement.

Ní neart go cur le chéile!

Have a great St. Patrick’s Day 2017 .
