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.


Trip to the Zoo

Last week the Sunshine Class visited the zoo. The children were very excited as they had been learning about wild animals in class. They saw many of their favourite animals such as zebras, elephants and monkeys. They even met lots of friendly ducks and ducklings!

School Tours to Dublin Zoo!

This year due to Covid classes will not be able to go on any school tours which involve travelling on a bus or indoor activities.

However, St. Gabriel’s N.S. is so lucky to be located within walking distance of Dublin Zoo! All classes will be visiting the zoo this year for their school tours.
