Mark Jenkins paid a visit to Mr. O’Neill’s 6th class and played ‘The Elephant’ from Saint Saens’ Carnival of the Animals. Did you know that part of the bow for his double bass is made from a mammoth’s tusk? Neither did we.
Mr. O’Neill’s 6th class recently produced their projects on topics ranging from matter, forces and electricity to technology and the frontiers of science. They also did some very interesting experiments which showed off their keen interest in and understanding of many different scientific principles. We had electrical circuits, chemical changes, electromagnets and even holograms.
5th and 6th class girls recently took part in the Cumann na mBunscol Gaelic football blitz in Bray Emmets and as usual St. Kevin’s pupils did their school proud. Thanks to Grainne for coming along and taking charge of one of the teams on the day. As you can see from the pictures everybody had a great time. Is aoibhinn linn bheith ag imirt peil!!
Le cúpla tseachtain anuas, bhí rang sé ag obair go dian leanár Gaeilge. Rinneamar dramaí bheaga i tseachtaine faoi rudaí a tharlaíonn sa bhialann – agus bhí siad an-grianmhar! Féach!
Well done to the athletes who represented us at the Wicklow Invitational Cross Country relays. There were over 30 schools in attendance and the children conducted themselves commendably as ever. They were great sportsmen and women but also tough and resilient when they needed to be. Every team had a top 10 finish which is remarkable in such a huge field. Special congratulations to our gold medal winners – 4th class boys, 5th and 6th class girls, silver medal winners – 3rd class girls and bronze medal winners 5th and 6th class boys. Special thanks to Fiona, Orla, Rebecca and Jane who helped out and to Mr. Flynn and Ms. Lambkin who organised.
6th class recently enjoyed a very informative trip to Glasnevin Cemetery. They got to visit the graves of some of the most influential people in Irish history, such C.S. Parnell, Daniel O’Connell, O’Donovan Rossa, Éamon de Valera and Michael Collins. They had a great day and would like to thank our tour guides in Glasnevin and the parents who accompanied us on the trip.
