Spar 5-a-side Dublin Finals

The boys did a fantastic job representing the school at the Spar 5 a side Dublin finals in Clontarf. After winning 2 of the 3 group games, there were 3 teams tied on 6 points. The boys narrowly lost the playoff game 1-0. They played some outstanding football on the day. It is clear that they all have big futures ahead of them and we wish them every success. Thank you to all the parents for supporting the team throughout the school year.

Trócaire Game Changers Competition

The Trócaire Game Changers is a very big competition in which over 300 schools and youth groups participate.The aim of Trócaire game changers is to make a game about major problems around the world and to fix them. On Tuesday, we went to the Helix to participate in the competition. The game we created for it is called Transition to Green. The game’s goal is to make the player realise the damage that is caused by non renewable energy sources, and to transition to cleaner energy sources to stop pollution. We got to try the other group’s games. It was a tough competition, but in the end, we won first place. At the ceremony, Trócaire showed their new digital game called Madzi water crisis in Malawi. The game was about how hard it is to get clean water in Malawi. We really enjoyed this thrilling experience, we were amazed that we won in such a tight competition.

Lamb visits Scoil Thomáis

Junior and Senior Infants were very lucky to have a visit from "Cookie" the lamb. She got to meet the children in the outdoor classroom. We got to pet her and learn some interesting facts about lambs. Some children got to give the lamb a little drink. The lamb really enjoyed meeting lots of children today in Scoil Thomáis. A big thank you to the farmer who let "Cookie" join us today and to Ms Foley too for organising the visit!
