We are back at Monkstown Park!!!
It is great to be back in school after an amazing summer break. Everyone made up for lost time, travelled near and far and took part in fantastic activities. Our first day back was fabulous hearing about all the exciting news and trips.

We have some new students this year Darragh, J.J. and Eugéne join us in 5th class and Daniel and Sean in 6th.
Since starting back we have done some light debates. It is a great way to get confident in yourself, speaking out loud, listening to what others say and using this in your speech. Speaking in front of peers can be tricky but all the students are improving all the time.
We also have been doing lots of art. We have been following the Bargue and the Loomis method. Using what we have learnt we are drawing our neighbour's portraits. Watch this space.
Some Transition year students came to 5th and 6th for language week. They gave us an introduction in French. We then continued the languages buzz. Erik taught us Finnish, Luca Italian, Lorenzo and Gabriel Spanish, Eugéne French and Filipe Portuguese. We loved getting a taste of all those cultures.
It was "Walk to school" week. As not every student can walk to school, the whole school went on a gorgeous coastal walk around beautiful Monkstown. We were so lucky with the sunny weather.
On Friday we walked to St. Patrick's church to join the parish for 10 am mass. Father Kevin did a wonderful job welcoming us all and blessing us for the year ahead.
