Take On The Teachers 2018

There was so much excitement in the school for the annual Take On The Teacher Challenge. On this day the pupils and teachers go head to head in lots of different active challenges.

We competed in basketball, soccer, strength tests, skipping, accuracy throwing tasks, hoola hooping, bowling, sprints and dodgeball.

We kept a tally of all of the points scored.

It was a super day! Well done everyone!

Learning new games in Room 15

As part of our history class we were learning about games from the past. Charlotte learned about a game ‘sticks’ and taught the other boys and girls in Room 15 how to play.

It is such a great game and so simple to play.

 

School hurling

We have completed four weeks out of six in St. Louis SPS now and the Hurling Club children have made lots of progress and more importantly, have had lots of fun along the way!

 

We are all looking forward to our big match on Thursday 25th October at 13:45pm where we look forward to showing off our skills and hard work to the parents and pupils of St. Louis.

 

Anyone who has really enjoyed the last few weeks should think about joining Kevin’s GAA in Dolphin’s Barn where they train every Saturday morning at 10:30am. They have hurls and helmets to lend to the children and they are providing fun and entertainment for children of all levels.

 

Anyone with any questions, please come in and have a chat with Mr. Whelan who would be happy to help!

Intercultural Sports Day

Last Thursday, the 6th classes took part in an Intercultural Sports Day. We got to play different sports such as dodgeball, penalties, bean bag toss races, and mini games of tennis and soccer. We were also given some treats to eat and had a medal ceremony for the winners! Thank you to An Garda Síochána for organising such a fantastic day!

2nd class hurling

The second classes in St. Louis have begun training hurling twice a week for the next six weeks. The children are looking forward to putting their skills on show on Thursday 25th October at 1:45pm when the parents will be invited in to watch them play a match on our brand new main yard.

Welcome back to school

Welcome back everybody. We hope you had a lovely summer.

There was lots of summer work going on in school. There are new girls and accessible toilets thanks to a Government grant.

Check out the new big yard too! Following from BOM and parents association funding we were able to upgrade the yard to a bright synthetic grass covering. It looks great!

 

5th class – garda community football fun day

5th class went to Cathal Brugha barracks with the local garda and took part in lots of different soccer activities.

It was great fun!

 

Lifesaving with Ms. O’ Brien

Room 15 were very lucky to have Ms. O’ Brien to come into the class and taught us about water safety and lifesaving. We learned about how to be safe in the water and how to act if we get into trouble.

It was really interesting and we learned a lot. Thanks to Ms. O’ Brien.

Platform concert 2018

Lots of pupils auditioned to be a part of the platform concert this year. Some people made it through the auditions and onto the stage.

Well done to all who auditioned and all who took part.

Active Week 2018 Day #5

On Friday Mr. Whelan was teaching 2nd class lots of hurling skills.

The other classes got to use their dodging skills in games of dodge ball.

It was a super end to a busy Active Week!!
