Visiting Author

Mr. Booth’s 5th and 6th classes, accompanied by Student Teacher, Ms. Gallacher, went to Ringsend Library today to listen to a talk by Irish author Jean Flitcroft. She told them about her new book which was printed today. It was a world exclusive for Ringsend! She also talked about her other books in the Cryptids series, ‘Loch Ness’ and ‘Mexican Devil’. The boys really enjoyed their visit. Cian Spain said the best bit was when she talked about the Loch Ness monster. Check out her website @ http://www.jeanflitcroft.com/

Halloween poem By Samuel

Halloween Poem

By Samuel Eliasen

Halloween is the night of the year,

When the whole country fills with fear.

Kids got all the goodies they could,

The walls of the streets filled with blood.

All the children were obviously fed,

Then suddenly awoke the dead!!!

The dead went past every tombstone,

They went past an orange traffic cone.

20 zombies turned into a fleet,

Walking down the bloody street.

All the kids gave a loud scream,

Then out of nowhere came a red beam.

The red beam was a sniper rifle,

Loaded with gone-off trifle!

He aimed, he shot,

The trifle was scalding hot.

The zombies ran with all their might,

They sure got a hell of a fright!!!!!

Apprentice Masterchefs!

Mr. Booth’s 5th and 6th classes ventured next-door to our  friendly neighbours in Ringsend College for some cooking lessons this week. The boys were in the very capable hands of Ms. Nugent who guided them through the steps necessary to cook a delicious lasagne. I’m sure the boys’ families are all looking forward to having a tasty meal served up to them some day soon! Many thanks to Ringsend College and especially to Ms. Nugent for her help (and patience!). Pictures to follow…

TV Soccer Stars!

Céilim Gannon and Igor Bartosiak were chosen by RTE to film a promo for their new series ‘Football’s Next Star’ in the Aviva Stadium. Jake O’Neill was also chosen but unfortunately he was too young and couldn’t attend. Former pupil Jonathon Egan and Brandon Kinsella from Marian College completed the quartet of footballers. Here is Céilim and Igor’s account of their day filming:

Jonathon Tormey from the FAI picked us up from school at 1:30pm and we went straight to the Aviva. The RTE film crew from TRTE were there and we started filming straight away for a promo called ‘Can you kick it?’ There were 2 directors and a cameraman and sound engineer. We had to dribble with a ball through cones and shoot into a goal. We had to re-shoot the scenes from different angles. We learned that making TV programmes takes a long time! We played football tennis and had heading competitions and also played ‘keppie uppie’. We also had to ask quiz questions for the viewers of ‘Football’s Next Star’ which will appear in the programme. We were given popcorn, jellies and water and then went on a tour of the stadium. We got to sit in the manager’s chair and saw the dressing rooms and warm-up areas. It was cool to see inside the stadium. They even have an astro pitch inside the stadium for warming up the players indoors. The edited programme should be on trte’s facebook site next week so you can see us in action then.
