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.


Imagination Playground

All the classes have been taking turns to create and build with the Imagination Playground blocks.  Each day they have been letting their imaginations run wild and working together to build everything from cat hotels to pirate ships!

A Trip to Dublin Zoo

First and Second Class went to Dublin Zoo for their Summer trip this year.  After a nice stroll down from the school, we spent a lovely day looking at all the different animals.  Some ducks and ducklings even joined us for lunch!

3rd and 4th class present Fundraising cheque to Dublin Zoo

This year all of our pupils are visiting Dublin Zoo for our summer Trip. We are so lucky to have Dublin Zoo within walking distance of our school.

At Christmas we had our Panto and Popcorn day to raise funds to support Dublin Zoo, as they were having a very difficult time while the Zoo was closed due to Covid-19. We raised a superb €675. Miss O’Loughlin’s class were chosen to present the cheque to John, one of the wonderful zookeepers. It will be a great help to the zoo in feeding the many hungry animals there.

The classes are all really enjoying their trips to the zoo. Check out some of the pictures here from Miss O’Loughlin’s visit this week. They had a special treat watching the Red Pandas being weighed and fed.
