Our Family Learning Room is complete!
We are very grateful to ABC Grangegorman for the significant contribution it made to make this very special room possible. It is a space where parents and children will be able to play and learn together.
It has been beautifully painted by Andrew, our hardworking caretaker. Many staff members worked extremely hard to get this room ready for use.
It is well stocked with lots of STEM toys, puzzles, and family games. Parents of Junior and Senior Infants will be invited to come and use the room with their children after the Easter break.
We’re delighted that Maths Games are going on again in two classes.
Mr. Smyth’s 1st class, and Miss Walshe’s 3rd/4th class have already enjoyed two afternoons of Maths Games and there has been lots of parents in to help out and enjoy the fun in both classes.
There are two weeks of Maths Games left for these classes before the Easter break. We hope to see more parents in over the next few weeks.
The pupils in Miss O’Dowd’s 2nd and 3rd class made this lovely display for our Sacred Space board this month. On the leaves of the tree they have written their Lenten promises.
3rd and 4th were invited on a tour of Dalymount Park, home ground of League of Ireland club Bohemians. We met the club chairman and star Romanian striker, Christian Magerusan. We visited the dressing rooms, the stands and lots of other facilities. We made a display about what we saw, did and learned. We are very grateful to Shane, Paul and Carina for being such wonderful guides!
One World Week is a celebration of the wonderful diversity in our school, celebrating the rich culture and traditions of our pupils. There are over 12 different nationalities represented in our school.
The week will consist of a One World Soccer Competition,Table Quiz, and Show and Tell, which allows the children the opportunity to share with their class and the school something they consider special and represents something special and positive about their country of birth or that of their parents.

The soccer world cup in St. Gabriel’s is for all the pupils from 2nd class to 6th class. The competition is run in association with the Football Association of Ireland (FAI).
