Sports Day took place on Sunday 13th May in Iveagh Gardens from 2-4 pm.

It was a fabulous sunny day and all students enjoyed participating in novelty races,eating ice cream and singing along to music.
The photos paint a thousand words of the fun and House spirit which was evident throughout the afternoon.

Well done to the Bees who won the Inter House Obstacle Race, the Gazelles were the Inter House Relay winners and the Bee and Macaw Houses were the overall House winners with the highest attendance.

Thank you to the staff,  the 4th Year helpers, the House Committee and the Parents Association for all their help to ensure that the day ran so smoothly.

It was a great success.

April House Event - Go Green on the Green

The April House Event was organised to incorporate the 'Go Green on the Green' school slogan.  Students were encouraged to wear items of green clothing, for the whole day, on the 27th April.  House points were awarded to the best dressed class, with 50 points going to 1G and 20 points to 5B.  Everyone enjoyed dressing up, and there was great creativity and initiative shown by all students.

2nd Year Carlingford P.E. Trip

2nd Year Carlingford P.E. Trip

On Tuesday 10th April, all 2nd Year students spent an exciting day at Carlingford Adventure Centre.

The bus journey down was spent singing along to pop songs and talking about our Easter holidays. When we arrived at Carlingford, the excitement only increased when we saw zip lines stretching across the countryside mountains.  We were then split into groups, giving us a chance to talk to students in different classes.  We separated into various activities.  Some went Zip Lining in the mountains, others went to the Crystal Maze and the third group participated in team building exercises.

After a hot meal, the groups switched activities in the afternoon, giving others a chance to brave the ‘Water Pump’, a team building exercise which included the entire team attempting to get across a muddy swamp using logs and wooden planks. The unlucky few  who lost their balance fell in or in one case a brave student volunteered to be put in a barrel and rolled across the make shift pathway!!  This was the highlight of the trip for her group as she managed to successfully complete the team task!!

After a fun filled day, where many hills were hiked and lots of tasks completed, everyone was ready to sleep on the homeward journey back to Dublin. The entire year group really enjoyed their day out and have lots of great memories to treasure and laugh at.

A huge thank you to Ms.Crinion for organising the day and to Ms. Barrett, Ms. Travers, Ms. O’Neill, Ms. Rowan and Ms. Mc Andrew for accompanying us.
