The children from Ms O’Dowd’s, Ms Whyte’s, Ms Walshes and Ms.Sweetman’s class went to Causey Farm Co.Meath on their school tour. They certainly didn’t muck around when it came to getting into the bog!!

Karate Kids!

Congratulations to the St. Gabriel’s After-School Club members who recently graded for their Yellow Belts in the Bushido Karate Gendai syllabus under Ms. Sweetman. Having shown great determination and a fantastic attitude towards learning over the past eight weeks, each student has sucessfully increased their fitness levels and also managed to develop a new skill set. Having undergone an examination on the 12th of December, each student showcased their ability to display the basics in both Karate and Kickboxing.

Very well done to all involved. The journey to becoming a master in any Martial Art can be a long and arduous one, however, if these students continue to value hard work and dedication in the way they have so far then anything is possible for them.

Paint and Colour

5th and 6th class explored the art of Marbling this week in school and we think they did a fabulous job. Marbling is the art of creating colourful patterns by sprinkling and brushing colour pigments on a pan of oily water and then transforming this pattern to paper.
