Ceol le Chéile Concert in Alexandra College

Congratulations to all the pupils, past pupils and staff who played and danced in our school and in Alexandra College this week. Both events were a wonderful collaboration of culture and music, perfectly timed in the middle of Seachtain na Gaeilge.
It really was a treat for our primary school pupils to play music with secondary school pupils.
During this past week both Ms Kelly of Alexandra College and Mr Lanigan of Sallins N.S. stressed how the appreciation and love of music has the potential to be with us our entire lives and not just while we are at school.
Thanks to all parents and family members who supported the musicians and dancers.

Seachtain na Gaeilge arís!

Bhí na páistí an-ghnóthach inniu. This year 'Seachtain na Gaeilge', the commemoration of the 1916 Rising and celebration of Irish culture were simultaneously highlighted and celebrated.  The junior and senior infants with their 'Seachtain na Gaeilge' hats sang enthusiastically this morning. After that, the first and second classes sang songs with great actions. The children also played their tin whistles really well. Finally, after little break the third to sixth classes sang songs, played instruments and  dramatised events of 100 years ago to celebrate Ireland as it was 100 years ago and as it is now.
Thanks and congratulations to all the pupils and staff who worked so hard to make it a very special and memorable occasion.

Celebrating 1916 in 2016 artistically!
Mrs Scott and some 6th class pupils constructed the G.P.O. from recycled materials! Mr McDonnell's class produced beautifully framed pictures commemorating the Rising of 1916.

Seachtain na Gaeilge
In keeping with tradition musicians from Alexandra College visited us once again to help us celebrate Seachtain na Gaeilge. This annual event brings together the students from our 4th, 5th and 6th classes along with the secondary school musicians for a festival of traditional and modern Irish music. The central theme this year was commemorating 1916 in 2016 style! And we certainly did that with the musicians from Alexandra College playing if front of our very own G.P.O.!!

These activities included a basketball challenge, a skipathon, tennis coaching, zumba dancing, dodgeball challenges, relay races, walk a mile, fitness classes, yoga and dancing. It seemed they even ordered the good weather for all the activities!!!!! The children all enjoyed being especially active and even homework was given an 'active twist'. Well done to everyone for taking part so enthusiastically.



On January 23rd, Cameron Ogiugo-McKency and Euan Custerson and their project "Aquaponics" took part in the Intel Mini-Scientist Grand Final.
