This morning we had Maths Games in Senior Infants. We had lots of fun and we would like to thank all the parents who came in to play the games with us!
Read all the match reports from Week 1 here…
Group One: China 4 Romania 1
China got off to a winning start in their opening game of the competition. The result was never in doubt despite the hard work of Romania’s star player Gift and a great goal from Kelly late in the game.
In the end, John took two goals China, while Daniel and Gabriel netted the other two. The game ended 4-1 to China. Romania have a week off this Friday, but China are back in action Friday, this time against a strong Benin side.
Group Two: Poland 1 Estonia 3
An outstanding display of football by Estonian striker Florin saw his team edge out Poland in the Group Two opening match. The skilful Florin bagged himself a hat trick despite the best efforts of Polish keeper David!
Nadine and Lorcan battled hard for Poland. Jochan was a safe pairs of hands in the Estonian nets but Lorcan did manage to pull one back for the Polish team. It’s still all to play for in Group Two. Poland a tough challenge on Friday against Nigeria, but a win there could help put their season back on track!
Today the pupils and staff of St. Gabriel’s held the annual sponsored Green Walk. The pupils all dressed in green and we walked around the area, despite the cold weather! Thank you to all the parents, families and friends who have sponsored the children already and we hope to keep going to reach our target. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Bhí craic mór againn inniú sa halla ag damhsa le chéile. Junior and Senior Infants had a great time today doing céilí dancing in the P.E. hall as part of Seachtain na Gaeilge. Ms. Deignan very kindly showed us some traditional Irish dancing and there were lots of smiles and laughs as we pointed our toes and danced to the music.
A big thank you to the parents who came to the Seachtain na Gaeilge concert!
