Our school Gaelic football team had a great win in Ballyboden this week on a scoreline of 6-6 to 0-3. Rhys Hickey was man of the match. There were also great performances by Scott Collopy and Cian O’ Reilly. Ceilim Gannon dazzled with his outrageous skills throughout. For many of the boys it was their first game of Gaelic and for others it was their first time playing for a team so well done to all involved. Players: Craig, Igor, Dylan, Cian, Dean, Joshua, Cian, Ceilim, Evan, Philip, Jack, Jake, Lee, Stephen, Samuel, Matteuscz, Scott and Rhys. Keep up the good work boys!
Our two new teachers from Spain have arrived and will work in the school until December. Carmen will work in the senior end of the school with Ms. Purcell and Mr. Booth and Lucia will work in the junior end of the school with Ms. Fitzgerald and Mr. O’Rourke. We hope they enjoy their time here in Ringsend.
1st, 3rd & 4th classes begin their ten weeks of swimming lessons in Sportsco pool on Thursday, September 13th at 10:00. This covers the Aquatics requirement of the P.E. curriculum. Being so close to the sea, rivers and a canal it is vital that all of the boys in our school learn how to swim. Each boy should have speedos/trunks/shorts (not football shorts), a towel, goggles, a swimming cap, arm-bands if needed and a light back-pack to carry his clothes. Qualified instructors will provide the tuition. Parents may come to view their children but cameras and phones are not permitted in the viewing area.
The boys in Mr. Booth’s 5th and 6th classes have started training for the new season of Gaelic Football matches which begin in September. Good luck boys!
