The children in 5th and 6th class participated in the ZOOM project at The Hugh Lane Gallery. Here they observed and discussed a number of different artistic works. They also had the oppurtunity to make model dinosaurs and explore how green screen works.
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!!
5th/6th class have done a lot of work, as well as having had a lot of fun, working on the Stories Between Us project this year. This intergenerational oral history project brought the children together with adults from Phibsboro Retirement Group and Henrietta Adult Community Education to play and share stories about their hobbies and pastimes.
A lot of behind the scenes work has happened since Christmas and the exhibition of the work done is now on display in the National Museum, Collins Barracks, where it will be until the end of September.
At the launch, the children returned to the museum to meet again with the adults they met during the project. They got to play and chat together again. The launch ceremony included lots of speeches, and best of all – one by our very own Dennis from 6th class. He did a wonderful job representing the experience he and his classmates had taking part in the project. We are all so proud of him.
Make sure to take some time to visit the exhibition over the coming months, and have a chat with your own families about play past and present.
Boys and Girls from St Gabriel’s participated in the FAI 5 a-side tournament in Irishtown this weekend. Despite some absences, the girls did well, winning their first match 4-0!
The boys topped their group and made it as far as the semi-finals. Well done to all!
Well done to Alan in Sweetman’s Class who wrote this wonderful poem in class.
I suppose you think Dublin is a dirty old town,
With the weather and the crime bringing you down,
But on a sunny day it’s the best place to be,
You can go to the park or swim in the sea.
Born in Dublin, here for life,
One day here I’ll meet a wife,
Wherever I go, wherever I roam,
I will always be happy to call Dublin my home.
