Learn Together – Belief Systems

We are hoping to expand our collection of resources to support the teaching of belief systems as part of our Learn Together curriculum. The main belief systems explored in our new curriculum are; Sikhism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Atheism / Agnosticism / Humanism, Christianity, Islam or Judaism.

Artefacts from various belief systems would be very useful, e.g. Sikh Chauri, Hindu Diya lamp, Islamic Rehal, Buddhist prayer beads, Jewish Dreidel, Christian crucifix etc.

We are asking families if they have any religious artefacts (books, statues, ceremonial items, clothing, etc.) they may be willing to donate to the school as a whole school resource could they send them in with their child or drop them to reception. Thanks so much!

Féile Fichille Inter-Schools Tournament

On Tuesday, the school’s chess club travelled to the Féile Fichille inter-schools chess tournament in Balbriggan and competed against six other schools. Everyone played great chess against their opponents and represented the school really well. The tournament adjudicator was particularly impressed at one of our students winning a game by a very rare pawn checkmate! Well done to all who took part. – Grace

Emma, Ellen, Faith, Anna, Elizabeth, Caoimhe, Meskerem and Sadhbh represented the girls in Irishtown stadium this week for a Dublin 5 aside competition. The standard was very high and the girls did themselves proud. There was lots of goals and excitement and smiles despite the dreary weather. We were so proud of you all.

Cormac, Bobby, Daniel, Sam C, Ciarán, Cal, Luke C and Éanna represented the school at the FAI 5-a-side tournament at Irishtown Stadium on Tuesday. They played brilliantly, going unbeaten in the group stage with 2 wins and 2 draws and were unlucky to miss out on the knockout stages. Bobby scored an amazing 7 goals in the four group games. A big bualadh bos for the lads. Colm
