Our performance at the Peace Proms Concert is coming up very shortly. This week we went to The Indoor Athletics Arena in Blanchardstown for a rehearsal with Peace Proms conductor Greg Beardsell and lots of other kids. It was hard work but great fun. We're really looking forward to the concert on 3rd February.
In November we celebrated the re-opening of our school library. Throughout the week there were lots of activities including Book Blind Date, Guess The Favourite Book, Library Treasure Hunt, book readings and book illustration workshops. Everyone had a great week and we are delighted with our new look library.
Congratulations to all of the classes in the school for the fantastic pictures they created as part of the competition for the Aindriú de Faoite Memorial Cup.
This was the first year that the Cup was presented in the school to recognise the achievement of the girls in Art and Crafts. The beautiful silver Cup was presented to the school by Aindriú's family to celebrate a wonderful teacher who sadly is no longer with us.
All of the pictures entered in the competition will be published in the school calendar.
There was great excitement in the school on Friday 27th October when former pupil of our school, Kate McKenna brought the Brendan Martin Cup to the school to celebrate with the girls.
Kate is part of the Dublin Women's Gaelic football team who completed a fantastic double for the boys and girls in blue when they won the All Ireland this year.
Kate began her football career when she was a pupil in our school and we wish her many more successful seasons with Clanna Gael and Dublin.
Congratulations to our team and their coaches for the great football skills and teamwork that they showed when they played in the Cumann na mBunscoil Gaelic Football Final in Croke Park on Thursday 26th October. The girls and teachers from 1st to 6th along with many of the parents and families came to support our team.
Despite some brilliant play, it wasn't to be our day and we didn't win.
However, to celebrate our brilliant team who played so well this year, we had chips for the whole school the following day - yum!
Since September 1st, girls from 3rd - 6th Class have been practising their gaelic football skills every day in preparation for their Cumann na mBunscoil competition.
They have played some fantastic football along the way and are now through to the Division 1 final of their Cumann na mBunscoil competition in Croke Park on Thursday 26th October.
Kick off is at 1:20 pm.
Girls from 1st - 6th Class will go to support our team.
Parents wishing to attend the match can buy tickets through the school.
Price 5 euro (adult), 3 euro (child).

All support welcome.
Come on the Girls in Blue!
Once again we celebrated on the 13th September - it would have been Roald Dahl's 101st birthday.
The girls were encouraged to enjoy exploring some of the wonderful characters he created.
In addition, many of the girls (and teachers) dressed up as a character from one of Dahl's many books or brought in their favourite book.
As well as being lots of fun, the day raised in excess of 500 euro which will be used to buy new books for the girls to enjoy.
