On Friday the 3rd of June 2016, the 6th classes (Mr Mangan’s & Ms. Hayes’s) went to Baltinglass for their school trip. The bus journey took approximately an hour and it was rather loud but that was very understandable as everyone was so excited. The classes were sorted into groups and each group was taken away to a different activity. At 13:00 everyone was brought up to the cafeteria and ate, and then went off to a different activity. The activities included Archery, Kayaking, and Abseiling, rock climbing and orienteering! At the end of the day, everyone was counted and boarded the bus, for another rather loud bus trip.

Well done to our quiz teams who took part in the South Dublin libraries Quiz.
Bhíomar ag ceiliúradh ‘Seachtain na Gaeilge’ agus Lá an Fhorógra (Proclamation Day) le ceol, céilí agus Forógra na Scoile, an Briathair Dhiaga á léamh amach. Chaith na páistí éadaí glaise ar an lá sin. Bhí na múinteoirí ag díriú go speisialta ar an nGaeilge labhartha, agus bhí gach páiste ag déanamh iarracht mhór Gaeilge mhaith a labhairt. Tá súil againn iarracht an-mhór a dhéanamh chun feabhas a chur ar chaighdeán na Gaeilge sa scoil. Bhí céilí mór againn sa halla agus bhí gach páiste ag damhsa agus ag rince. Tháinig Alannah Hanley, dálta ón scoil cúpla bliain ó shin, chun taispeántais rince a chur ar siúil do na páistí lena cara Pedro ón mBrasaíl. Rinceoirí den chéad scoth a bhí ann. Bhí páistí ó rang a cúig ag damhsa Baint an Fhéir agus Damhsa na Scuabanna. Tá súil again gur bhain gach duine sult agus suaimhneas as Seachtain na Gaeilge 2016 i Mharlaí.
Tuesday March 15th, 2016 is Proclamation Day. On this day we held a flag raising ceremony, sang the National Anthem and students read the Proclamation. Each class had created their own proclamation for a new Generation and we shared our class proclamations for 2016. We also held a céile and every class in the school took part.
Jungle Dave visited our school on Wednesday 9th March. Dave explained how the animals hunt, how they perceive the world, how they use their senses, what they eat, how they eat and how they catch their prey. The students then had the unique experience of handling and touching crocodile’s tarantulas, scorpion’s, snakes and large lizards. A big thank you to our parents’ association for arranging this event.
