Jack, Seán and Joe have been hard at work for the last week or so writing, editing and finally publishing their own novels, complete with illustrations by Klaudiusz and Darragh. The novels are divided into chapters and the boys are very proud of themselves after producing such great stories. They are very grateful to their teacher, Mary, for helping them put their books together.

UN Global Goals Gender Equality Play

Posted by: | Posted on: June 20, 2017

The boys and girls from 3rd and 4th classes in the boys’ and girls’ schools had a fun afternoon trying different sports under instruction from some of their classmates. The idea was for the boys and girls to try out sports they would feel less comfortable playing due to their gender. The day was a great success and everyone gave their all. Thanks to Ms Walsh for planning the event and Mr Lehmann for helping organise things. IMG_1230 IMG_1231 IMG_1232 IMG_1234 IMG_1236

Monday was drumming day in the school and every class got to participate in a percussion workshop with our two guest drumming experts. It was a loud but great day. The boys loved it!

Trip to Tipp!

Posted by: | Posted on: June 20, 2017

Mr O’Rourke’s class had a brilliant day out on his farm in Tipperary last week. The boys were welcomed by Tom, Terri and family and had a fantastic day experiencing rural life. The boys got to visit an old farmhouse and see old artefacts, paint with potatoes, build walls, run through meadows, do an assault course with bales of hay and straw, ride in a trailer, feed hens, pet calves, lambs and ponies, hammer nails, play football, ride in a horse and trap, drive go-karts and make butter. What a busy day!

Then they were treated to a delicious dinner of shepherd’s pie or bangers and mash. Thank you so much to Mr O’Rourke and his family for their wonderIMG_1186 IMG_1188 IMG_1191 (1) IMG_1189 IMG_1195 (1)ful kindness.

Art Attack!

Posted by: | Posted on: March 28, 2017

Mr Lane’s class took part in a very exciting art project in conjunction with the RHA and their guest artist Bassam Al-Sabah. We visited his studio to see some of his creations. Then Bassam came to our classroom on two consecutive days to work with the boys to produce their own creations. Using cardboard cylinders and tape to construct a frame, the boys, working in small groups, added clay to the frames to produce amazing robots, monsters and warriors based on Bassam’s original work. Here are some images of the artists at work.IMG_0559 IMG_0556 IMG_0555(1) IMG_0560 IMG_0554 IMG_0557

And you must recognise the girl in the white top. Don’t bother about the boys they were from a visiting German school.

Witness the fitness!

Posted by: | Posted on: January 19, 2017

On Thursday January 19th, Mr Lehmann took over the school hall to put the boys through their paces in his version of Operation Transformation Bootcamp. The boys were ‘burping’, skipping, planking, hopping, squatting, running and lunging for twenty minutes in a fantastic workout, all organised and supervised by Drill Instructor Donal who must be exhausted after his day. The boys all threw themselves into the exercises and had a great time despite the hard work involved. Let’s hope they keep it up in their spare time.


Here are some of the 3rd and 4th class boys in action:
