Santry Sports 2018

Lots of pupils in the school were training after school for weeks in preparation for the sports competition held in Santry Sports Stadium every year.

Well done to all of those who trained and also competed on the two different days.

5th class school tour

5th classes went to The Crystal Maze this year for their school tour.

They split into groups and had to complete physical, mental and skill challenges to win crystals.

At the end of the day if they had reached enough crystals the school wins a trophy – St. Louis now owns a Crystal Maze trophy! Well done everyone.

 

It was a great day.

Santry sports 2017

All of the boys and girls were working hard to compete for a place to represent St. Louis in Santry sports stadium in lots of events.

The boys and girls that made it through training went to Santry on Monday.

They worked hard in all of their races and competitions.

Mr. Bermingham was even talking about Santry Sports on RTÉ!

Well done everyone!

5th class school tour

Room 14  & 15 went with the 6th classes to Lilliput Adventure Centre on their school tour.

We set off from school on the buses very early and travelled to Westmeath. We were all very excited to get there and start our activities.

We got to do EIGHT different games and activities like rock climbing, group games, capture the flag activity, kayaking, bog hopping, orienteering and archery.

It was an amazing day!

The 3rd classes went to Pine forest on their school tour.

It was a great day!

Ceolchoirm – Seachtain na Gaeilge 2016

All of the pupils gathered in Halla Cullen to celebrate Seachtain na Gaeilge.

All of the pupils have been working very hard with learning and using new Gaeilge phrases. It has been great to her them around the school.

Each class prepared a piece to perform ‘as Gaeilge’ in Halla Cullen.

We heard poems and songs and we saw lovely dances.

6th class also told us a story and poem about Irish history.

It was a really super day! Well done to everybody involved!

Gaeilge abú!!!

 

Raising the Irish flag in St. Louis

On the 15th of March 2016, St. Louis SPS and St. Louis Infant School took part in a special ceremony to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the Easter Rising that happened in 1916.

Both schools were presented with a tri-colour Irish flag by some soldiers from Cathal Brugha barracks last year and we raised them together at 12 o’ clock.

Cian and Kate from 6th class read the proclamation to the pupils and everybody sung the national anthem Amhrán na bhFiann together with the help of the St. Louis SPS choir.

It was a great ceremony.

 

Céilí mór 2016

All of the pupils and teachers gathered in the yard to learn some new Irish dances.

Mr. Mc Garrigle taught us some new steps and we danced together.

It was great fun learning new Irish dances.

Friendship Fortnight assembly 2015

Friendship fortnight is a time in the school year where all the boys, girls and teachers think about ways to be a better friend.

This year we ended Friendship Fortnight with a super assembly in Halla Cullen. Mr. Mooney and Ms. Biesty created a brilliant assembly that was focussed on what we learned in our classrooms. We got to speak about being better friends and  heard from videos and poems too.

We got to sing friendship songs as a school and we got to see the winners of the poster competition from each class.

It was great fun and we learned a lot – Keep being a good friend everyone!

Thanks to Mr. Mooney and Ms. Biesty!
