June has been teaching us all how to knit this year in Fiona’s class.
Bianca has finally finished her very own handmade, rainbow scarf and it looks great!!
Maeve and Joni still have a bit more knitting to do but are enjoying themselves hugely!
As an end of year History review, Peadar’s 2nd class visit Collins Barracks, and complete a pop quiz on exhibits there. We visited all floors and those who completed the quiz well retain a homework pass for 3rd Class.
6th class graduated today, after 8 years with D7ET. This was the first double stream group to go through the school, so there were two teachers working on the ceremony. Ruth and Ciara led their classes through a Grease dance routine, before they marched out of the school grounds forever, past the traditional guard of honour.
Only 13% of Dublin schools have an Active Flag awarded to them. D&ET is privileged to not only have one, but to have it renewed. This week, we gathered in the yard, when Dublin Camogie star, Arlene, raised our new flag.
This one is a deeper blue, so should take longer than the previous to fade.
6th Class led in their final dance routine, before graduating on Monday next.
Who will be there in the future to provide such dance moves?
Thanks to Padraig for coordinating the Active Flag Committee.
Indicate if you are turning
Even if you are only learning
Green means Go
So now you know
Don’t ever drink and drive
If you want to stay alive
Be safe on the road
Or you’ll be like a flattened toad
Traffic stops at a red light
So you won’t become a grim sight
If you stay bright
You’ll cross with delight
If you cross the road at a bend
Your cuts and bruises may never mend
Don not cross at a bend
Or that may be for you the end
