Ms. Sweetman’s 5th and 6th class had a wonderful time at Collins Barracks today. The children have been focusing on WW2 in class and had the oppurtunity today to explore and hear about the stories of the Irish at War.
Comhghairdeas libh! Well done to our Irish speakers of the week.
The children in 3rd and 4th class particpated in a Junioir Achievement programme over the past 4 weeks under the guidance of Cian McMahon. The topic of discussion was about how our city considers economic development, local businesses, and career opportunities. The children discovered that, A city is a place where a lot of people live, work, play, and go to school. Cian helped the students build a city! They constructed paper buildings, and mapped out a city. They wrote a newspaper article and planned their own restaurants They also examined why banks are important. Well done 3rd and 4th class.

Admission is free and all are welcome. We hope to see you there!
We had a very special visitor to St. Gabriel’s this week.
Santa Claus came to visit on Wednesday. He said he had heard that we are the best school in Dublin with the best boys and girls. And he’s right!
He very kindly gave a gift of a book to every single boy and girl in the whole school. He reminded the children how reading is so important and also lots of fun.
We were very impressed that Santa has been learning Irish too, and was able to use his cúpla focail. He was very impressed with the good manners of the children throughout the school in English and in Irish.
Wishing all the children and their families a very happy Christmas.
School reopens Monday 8th January at 8:50am
