Back To School For 1st Class
Yeah We Are Back At School


There was great excitement on the first day back at school. Everyone seemed happy to see their friends again and to be in their new classroom on the top corridor.

Our new Principal, Mr. Flood, welcomed everybody at our first Assembly of the new school year.

The boys have been very good at following their class rules and completing their classwork.

We welcomed Mivaan as a new class member, and he has now settled in just as if he was always in the class!

Inspired by the Mona Lisa we all used our craftwork skills to make a self-portrait, and they all turned out really well.

We’ve had two outings to Monkstown with the rest of the school. The first one was to celebrate Walk To School Week. We ended up by the coast, looking at the seabirds fishing. The next walk was to the Beginning of Year Mass in St. Patrick’s Church. Fr Kevin welcomed us all back to school.

We completed a colourful height chart for our classroom, which will allow us to keep a check on how much the boys are growing.

The Birthday Balloon Train that we made will tell us when a boy’s birthday is coming up, so we will all be ready to celebrate the important days of our friends.

We ended the month on a high with an Active Flag event – pupils v teachers in a tug of war, a run, and a penalty shoot-out. A famous victory for the students meant no homework or Friday tests!
