St. Gabriel’s FUN-draising Day!

We had an amazing Fun Day in St. Gabriel’s NS this year as part of our fundraising initiatives.  All the children could wear their own clothes for the No Uniform Day and this started off the party atmosphere!  Throughout the day everyone got to take part in Party Games, Playground Games and an Outdoor Disco where DJ (Mr) Donnelly had the whole school up and dancing.  All of these activities were topped off with a visit from the Ice-Cream Van.  What a fantastic day we all had!

Thank you to everyone who has returned their donation envelopes already and there is still time to send it back for anyone who has not had the chance yet.


Senior Sports Day 2021

The pupils from Ms Sweetman’s 5th and 6th class had a wonderful Sports Day this year. The event took place in the beautiful surroundings of the Law Society of Ireland grounds on Blackhall Place (a huge thank you to the staff for accommodating us).

There was soccer, tag rugby, handball, egg and spoon races, long distance running and sprints. The pupils had a brilliant day! Check out some of the photos below!

After-school Artists!


The children from 5th and 6th Class are very lucky this term as Ms. Delaney has been running a Mural Painting Club after school!  The planning and prepping for painting was a great collaborative effort with lots of ideas and creativity flowing.  As you can see they are really brightening up our courtyard with their beautiful painting.

School Tours to Dublin Zoo!
