Hip-Hop Success (2010)
My name is Nicola, and I am in Second Year.
At the weekend I go to dancing with a Hip Hop group called "Collide".
I go every Saturday and we practice for 4 hours. There are 23 people in my dance group.
I have been learning Hip Hop for 2 years. I love dancing.
My dancing group won a competition in Tallaght Basketball Arena on 12th December.
This is me with my trophy.
Homework Club (2010)
The homework club is in full swing. Students get individual help with their homework, and the experience has proved very worthwhile.
It takes place in Rosary School every Monday and Tuesday from 3.50pm-5.50pm with the new term commencing on January 10th 2010. The cost per term is €50.
Maths Day 2010 (2010)
Maths Day was a great success, all classes participated, including the girls from Marian School.
We also invited the boys from St. Joseph's , with their teachers.
There were loads of exhibits, interactive sessions, classes and puzzles, in different areas in the school.
Well done to all the Maths teachers who organised this day, and made maths fun, fun, fun!
We got the Magic Mathworks Travelling Circus to come to the school, with loads of things to try. This touring maths lab demonstrates and explores a multisensory approach to the learning of mathematics based on the Multiple Embodiment Principle of Z P Dienes.
Afternoon Tea for Ethiopia (2010)
On Wednesday 20th October, St. Mary's turned back the clock and we had Afternoon Tea.
This was a fundraiser for Fr. Stephen Monaghan's project in Ethiopia.
Ms. Owens said in her speech "I am so glad of the opportunities that my great education in St. Mary's School gave me, that I want to help provide education for deaf children in Ethiopia".
We had a lovely tea, with sandwiches and lots of cakes.
Then we had a raffle and traditional afternoon tea bingo!
It was great fun, and the amount raised was..... €2010.
Well done to Ms. Owens, LCA 1, and the many people who helped making and serving the food.
The basketball teams have been working hard and training with Sarah Jane.
Clean up your computer ... (2010)
This week, LCA 2 asked everybody to clear out old files, documents and, most of all, old pictures.
This should result in a faster, better system for everybody.
