Congratulations to the two sixth classes who graduated from St. Brigid's in a lovely ceremony. Mass was celebrated by Fr. Richard, after which the girls received their certificates from our principal, Ms. Burke. The girls sang a song together to conclude the ceremony.
Refreshments were provided by the parents association in the hall below the church. The parents association also gave each girl a lovely memento of a bookmark to remind them of their time in St. Brigid's.
Congratulations and well done, ladies.
Ms. Phelan's 6th class worked on the Blue Star programme since last September, learning about the EU and the importance of Europe in our lives. Throughout the year we learned about history, geography and cultural aspects of the EU. We had a lot of fun in doing so. In May for Europe week, we welcomed the Romanian Ambassador, Cllr. Paul McAuliffe and parents to a school assembly to celebrate Europe Day.
We are delighted to receive this award, and a European flag in recognition of our work done this year.
Thanks to an invitation by Cllr. Paul McAuliffe, the girls in Mrs. Phelan's 6th class had a wonderful tour of City Hall today. After a brief introduction to City Hall, Cllr. McAuliffe proceeded to show the girls the chamber where Dublin city councillors hold their meetings. The girls loved the opportunity of speaking into the microphones, and seeing how votes are taken in the chamber, as well as the process involved when a new mayor is to be elected. This was followed by tour of the museum, where the chains of office are on display, as well as an outline of the history of Dublin City.
A huge thank you to Cllr. McAuliffe for enabling the class to have the chance to visit City Hall, and for providing worksheets for the girls to work on during their visit.
Chualamar sceal i rang Gaeilge faoi rang a sé agus bhí lá gan éide scoi acu. Mar sin, bhíomar gléasta suas ar maidin ar scoil mar atá sa phictiúr thuas. Bhí eadaí ildaite orainn. Cé go bhfuil na laethanta saoire an tsamhraidh ag teacht, bhí buicéad agus spád ag roinnt de na cailíni freisin, agus spéaclaí gréine ar chailíni eile. Bhaineamar taitneamh as an lá seo!
Mrs. Phelan's 6th class had really good fun at the Irish Aid workshop.We split into 2 groups and half watched a video while half learned a song called 'bring in the washing'. We also played the bongos and dressed up in national clothes.We learned about a girl named Memory who is 18 and lives in a very poor village. She gets up at 5 in the morning and makes her little sisters breakfast and then she does some chores and goes to school. Though she doesn't have things like wifi and electricity, she and her family are very happy. Memory wants to do well to get a good job to help support her family.
On May 8th last, the 6th class girls in Room 16 presented their Blue Star project on the European Union to all classes from 2nd to 6th, as well as the parents of Room 16 and parents of the Romanian pupils in our school.
We were honoured to have the Romanian Ambassador to Ireland, H.E. Mrs Breazu, and a local councillor, Mr. Paul McAuliffe, as our guests, and to have them speak to the assembly about the importance of Europe.
We proceeded to sample European foods as brought in by the 6th class girls, and our visitors and parents enjoyed many varied tastes.
Mrs. Phelan's class are hoping to receive their Blue Star flag in recognition of all their work this year on their project.
Room 14's JEP project "The Pink Bakery" was a huge success!
Our showcase day was on the 26th of March and we sold all of our products. We made chocolate covered Oreos (Choreos), delicious cupcakes and Cocoa on the Go. Cocoa on the Go was the most popular and sold out first. On Showcase Day some members of Ms Dywer's family came in to support us which was lovely.
We raised an amazing €711!! After we figured out how much we spent on supplies, our final profit was an amazing €541!!!! All of the proceeds went to cancer charities.
We were really happy with the way the day went and how everybody got their turn to sell the products on the day. We also really enjoyed baking the products and getting everything ready for the big day. We had a great fun selling the products, we had the best day ever!
Thanks to everyone for all of their support- it was greatly appreciated.
