Learning about gender stereotyping

Room 11 were learning about gender stereotyping, and RTE News2Day came into our class to find out what we thought! Gender stereotyping is when some people think that certain characteristics or jobs belong only to boys or girls. We loved learning about how the filming, editing and producing happens.

Have a watch to see what we think!

#GAGA

Dublin City Sport and Wellbeing Partnership invited St. Louis SPS to go #GAGA on December 5th

 

What is it?

 

As you may be aware, participation rates for girls in sport are much lower than boys. The aim is to promote and engage more girls in physical activity. We tried to kick start this by delivering a campaign called GAGA- Get All Girls Active!

All of the girls took to the yard to take part in different activities with Mr. Whelan.

It was so great so lets continue to go GAGA girls!!!

Science Week in Room 9

Room 9 were very busy for Science Week! We hosted a Science Fair for 4th, 5th & 6th classes showing them some very interesting experiments. We also had a visit from Rachel’s mum, Emma who is a professor in Science in Trinity College! We learned about the eye and experimented with some dry ice too – it was really good fun!

Goodbye Jessica ♥

Rm. 5 bade a very fond farewell to their classmate Jessica.

She will be missed by all in St. Louis! 🙂

Room 11 – learning about food in the past

Room 11 have been learning about food from long ago and how they produced it all. We learned how to make butter! We discovered what buttermilk was and how it could be used. It was yum!

Science Week fun in Room 2

The boys and girls in Room 2 had lots of fun learning about science with some cool experiments.

Sam Maguire visits St. Louis

Huge thanks to Paul and Kevins G.A.A who brought in the Sam Maguire Cup for a flying visit to St. Louis on Wednesday 21st November. The second class hurling team as well as the school football team got a chance to hear about the history of the cup, see it and even got to hold it. The cup weighs a massive 12.7kg and is made of silver. Here’s hoping that one of the children who held it today will get a chance to bring this cup or one like it back to us in the future as a winning player!!

Science week fun in Room 14

All of the pupils in Room 14 were very busy during science week running their science fair for the rest of the pupils in the school.
