Trip to The National Museum of Ireland!

The children from Mr.Gallagher’s class went on a trip to the National Museum of Ireland last Thursday. Here they learned about style and fashion dating back centuries. They took part in a detective style game answering questions relating to style and fashions from the past. The children really enjoyed their trip!

‘Oliver Twist’ comes to St. Gabriel’s!

Today the children and staff of St. Gabriel’s were very lucky that the theatre came to us in the school!  The cast of M & M Productions put on a wonderful show and really brought Charles Dickens’ story ‘Oliver Twist’ to life.

All the children really enjoyed the show, especially when The Artful Dodger tried to pick one of the teachers pockets!  Well done to two of our 3rd Class pupils who became pickpockets for the performance as well.

 

First Communion

A huge congratulations to some of the children from 2nd Class who celebrated their First Holy Communion on Saturday 11th of May.  The children enjoyed a lovely ceremony with their family and friends around them.  Well done to the other children from 2nd Class and the other classes in the school who were able to support their friends on the day by singing in the school choir.  It was agreed by all that they sounded beautiful!
