Summer Performance

The school’s Summer Show took place on the stage yesterday 14th June in our school hall .

The children performed a fantastic range of songs, poems and dances for a huge and enthusiastic audience.

Well done to all the performers and a massive thank you to all the parents and guardians who came along to support the children. A raffle took place too- congratulations to all the winners!

Congratulations to our debating team!

Well done to the St. Gabriel’s NS Debating Team who won the Blackhall Place Inter-Schools Debate on Monday the 13th of June in the Law Society.

They debated against St. Paul’s Brunswick Street in the final. The motion was “Social Media is a benefit to primary school children” and St. Gabriel’s NS opposed it.

They worked very hard, made some great arguments and won the tournament.

Well done!

Students from St. Gabriel’s attend 1916 Commemoration

On Wednesday the 4th of May, 5th and 6th class students from St. Gabriel’s were invited to attend in the annual 1916 Commemoration Ceremony in Arbour Hill. It was a privilege to attend such a prestigious occasion and the school was represented well by our students. Three of the students said a prayer of the faithful and carried the offertory gifts during the Mass.

Attendees at the ceremony included relatives of the leaders of the 1916 Rising along with the President of Ireland Michael D. Higgins, the Taoiseach, government ministers and TDs,  Senators and members of the defence forces.

After the ceremony, the students were delighted to meet the President who posed for a photo with them.
