Students

Form 6.1 are a very capable group of 25 boys under the guidance of Ms. Keane.  This is a big year for the boys with preparations for confirmation ongoing and thoughts of progression to the senior school next year starting to come into focus.  They are impressive in many respects and are to be commended for their dedication to the pursuit of excellence in all they strive to achieve, especially their academic and sporting endeavours.  We wish them well for the year ahead!

Walk for Water   23/3/17

As part of our quest for ‘The Water Flag’, all the boys in our Junior School took part in the ‘Walk for Water.’  This has helped us to understand the distances that many people have to travel on a daily basis to get water for themselves and their families.  Many thanks to Ms. O’Connell and the boys from The Greenschool’s Committee for organising the event.

 

Internet Safety   20/3/17

The boys from Forms 6 and 6(1) attended a talk today which was given by Dr. Fergus Heffernan.  The boys learned more about dealing with their feelings and emotions and about how to keep themselves safe while using the internet.  The talk was very interesting and the boys really enjoyed it.  Thanks to Dr. Heffernan and his daughter Laura for their time.

 


Callbacks for Annie

Well done to everybody who auditioned for the musical ‘Annie.’  Callbacks will be from 12 – 2pm on Tuesday 14th February.  Please learn the speech by Daddy Warbucks and sing the first verse and chorus from the song ‘Tomorrow’.  Refer to the sheet that you have been given!

Best of luck!

 

 

 

Welsh Trip

On the 24th of November I went to Wales with my class to play rugby.  After school we went on the bus to the airport with our luggage.  There were very few people there because it was a school day.  We went to the place where you wait for your plane and the Leinster rugby team were there.  We go on the plane and so did the Leinster team.  On the plane I talked to my friends and one of the players was sitting in front of me.  We got autographs!  We arrived at the airport and went to our hotel on a bus.  We arrived and had our dinner when we got to the hotel.  We then had a meeting in the meeting room.  Our coach told us the teams for the match the next day. We went to our rooms and could watch TV for an hour.  Afterwards I tried to get to sleep because we had a big match the next day.

The following morning we had breakfast at the hotel and went for a walk around Cardiff.  We went to the official Welsh rugby shop and I bought some stuff, like a rugby ball.  We then went back to the hotel and went to play a match.  We played really well.  We won 42 – 7 and the A team won 26 – 12.  We went to a Welsh rugby team’s stadium called Scarlets to watch Leinster play against them.  Unfortunately Leinster lost but it was still a great game.  We went to the airport and got onto the plane with the team late that night and flew back to Dublin.  We arrived home really late and I was so tired.  The trip was amazing and we got to meet up with the Leinster team which was a great experience.

\     St. Mary’s College Junior School will re-open on Friday

 

1st September 2017, from 8.55a.m. to 2.30 p.m..

 

On the 10th March, the students from St. Mary’s College visited the Irish Military War Museum near Slane in County Meath.

We got to look at items from WW1 and WW2, including looking at trenches and machinery that were used.  We also got to handle the guns which the soldiers used during these wars.  Following on from that, we watched an interesting documentary on the wars and Matthew Choi and Ben Slattery were chosen to dress up in military uniforms.

The teachers got to shoot guns and the bullet shells  were raffled off – Sean O’Leary  and Peter O’Beirne were the winners from Form 6(1)!

The highlight of the day was getting to go inside the army tank and play in the playground!

A great, educational school trip was had by all!

We got complimentary capri suns, crisps and chocolate bars.  It was a great day!
