6th class choir

Good afternoon Parents / Guardians,

I hope you have had a nice week.

We have had a great week, the highlight being our 6th class choir performance this morning. They performed for both our parents and guardians and for our infant classes.

Thank you so much to everyone for taking the time to come into Parent Teacher meetings this week. It was great to be able to have them in school this year.

Let there be light

Thank you, 3rd class, for showing me the fabulous array of lighthouses that you all made. After completing their collaborative art project, they created their own electricity circuits. They attached them to a switch, screwed in bulbs and switched them on!

Gold Programme Boxing Programme continues every Thursday for some of our 6th class students. This will culminate in a showcase event on December 8th in St Saviour’s Boxing Club, Dorset St. The children are training with children from a selection of local schools under the guidance of Dublin City Boxing coaches.


Our children continue to enjoy their rowing sessions every Tuesday. Thanks to Jake, our bus driver, we have efficient transport to and from the club every Tuesday.


Week 2 of our swimming programme is over and the children are making great progress. They are really enjoying swimming with their school peers.

If you fancy breaking up the long winter evenings and looking for a way to get out the house, Jenny from St Brendans GAA Nursery has organised a free social fitness group for adults at Aughrim Street Sports Hall, which takes place on Thursdays 7-8pm. She stresses that it’s not GAA training, but is inspired by some of the games that make running around fun. If you’re interested, you can join the group through this link “
