FAI Primary School 5s Competition

The boys from 6th Class recently took part in the Spar FAI Primary School 5 a side competition in Irishtown.  A team of eight headed off early on Wednesday morning, nervous but excited about what the day would hold.

The team were strong through all their matches, with goalie Alex unbelievably only conceding one goal in total!  As captain, Scott gave direction and encouragement where needed and he found great support in defence from David, Mario and Nickolas.  Roberto, Séamus and Lee were strong in attack and one match ended in a 5 – 0 victory.  While the team only missed out on the finals because of goal difference, they all agreed that they had a fantastic day and did their school proud.

STAR Awards 2018

Last Wednesday, ten children attended the annual STAR Awards in the beautiful President’s Hall in the Law Society building on Blackhall Place.

The STAR awards is a very special awards ceremony, as the winners are nominated and voted for by the other pupils, staff and parents of the children in St. Gabriel’s NS. The winners are all recognised for their hard work, talents, and contribution to the school and community.

Good Friends Week

4th – 8th September 2017

Our special focus this year is to ‘Be Generous’.  We hope to honour the life of our wonderful school gardener, Séamus Stone, who recently passed away. His generosity knew no bounds and has enriched the lives of our school community.

Each class will work hard this week to be generous with their time, their talents and their treasures, especially sharing our smiles and our kind words!

We will draw up our class charters with guidelines that we feel are important to help each classroom to be happy, safe, welcoming and productive places to be this year.

Ms. Fahey’s 5th and 6th class will display their generosity by becoming Playground Buddies to our new Junior Infant Class. What fantastic role models they are!

Green Walk!

St. Gabriel‘s annual sponsored Green Walk was held on 15th of March this year and was enjoyed again by all. Well done to all the children who worked hard to fill their sponsorship cards and thank you to all the parents, neighbours, aunties, uncles, grannies and grandads who sponsored them.  We were lucky enough to have beautiful weather on this day and our pupils were a colourful sight as they walked through Stoneybatter in their green costumes.
