Z okazji zbliżających się Świąt Bożego Narodzenia dyrekcja, nauczyciele oraz uczniowie Naszej szkoły postanowili przygotować prezentację zatytułowaną “Christmas Around Our World”. Wystawa ma na celu ukazanie, jak w poszczególnych krajach świętuje się przyjście na świat Jezusa Chrystusa.
Wszystkie osoby posiadające materiały (pocztówki, zdjęcia, przepisy kulinarne etc.) dotyczące tradycji i obrzędów związanych z celebrowaniem świąt Bożego Narodzenia w Polsce, prosimy o kontakt z sekretariatem szkoły.

Pat Larkin, a past pupil of the school had a distinguished music career as drummer in The Blades and other groups. Pat is also a writer and has written The Coalboat Kids a book of short stories .
The stories are based on events in Pat’s own childhood in Ringsend in the late sixties. The stories centre around life among the working class families and the way the children made “a few shillings” and the trouble this often got them into.
The writings of Pat Larkin are also trips into local history. This is not the history of great events but of life among the ordinary people. Most importantly the characters are pupils in St.Patrick’s BNS.
Pat’s story “The Coalboat Kids” which gives its name to the book was turned into a film in 2007. The film was directed by Graham Cantwell. It was filmed locally, with pupils from the school as extras and featured photos from our school’s archive in the opening scenes.
A few weeks ago Pat read some of his work to the fifth and sixth class and the boys gave their reactions to the stories. They knew most of the places in the stories but Pat had to explain why some places had changed or disappeared forever.
The next week Pat showed the film “The Coalboat Kids” to the pupils. The boys were very interested and thought the film was great.
Then Pat held a writing workshop. The boys wrote their own stories but did not put their names on them. Pat then chose what he found to be the most interesting one which turned out to be Lee’s. Lee then read it to the class and received a prize.
Pat’s music was not always appreciated in his native Ringsend. Look up The Story of The Blades on You Tube.
After teaching for twenty five years in the school Deputy Principal Stephanie Goode retired at the Halloween break. During those years Mrs.Goode has been a class teacher, a learning support teacher and home school liaison teacher. It was through her time as junior infants teacher and later as home school teacher that the community of Ringsend especially the mothers got to know and respect Mrs Goode.
Everyone in the school community wishes Mrs.Goode a very happy retirement.
