Ms Griffin’s class decide to ‘dance in the rain’!

Inspired by the rain last Friday, Ms Griffin’s 3rd class discussed how we all face storms in our lives, and how it is up to us to determine how we respond.

They talked about how they might choose to hide inside and wait for it to pass, but ultimately decided it was better to continue on with life and try their best to sing, dance and enjoy themselves whatever the weather!

“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass; it’s about learning how to dance in the rain.”


Successful Sports Week at St Pat’s!

What a week it’s been for the pupils of St Pat’s!

All the children have been taking part in their own class Sports Day, beginning last Friday, June 11th, and culminating today, June 18th, with the arrival of the ice-cream van to provide some well-deserved treats for all the boys and girls!

We have been blessed with both the weather, and with being able to utilise DCU’s fantastic new 3G pitch!

The pupils have been involved in a wide and varied range of sporting activities (including rounders, novelty races, tag rugby, GAA, soccer, obstacle courses, penalty shoot-outs, dodgeball, tugs-of-war and benchball) over the past six days, and we’re sure you’ll agree that the photographs below help to capture some of the fun, action and sportsmanship that make Sports Day such a hotly-anticipated and much-loved annual event in the St Pat’s calendar.

A huge well done to all those who helped to make Sports Week a success, and a special thanks to all the pupils who showed great enthusiasm throughout!

We hope the children enjoy a rest this weekend ahead of the final eight days of the 2020/21 school year.

We took lots of photos…Enjoy!







Bloomsday Festivities

Earlier this week Ms Leahy’s 5th class enjoyed seeing the “Joycean Jaunt” in Drumcondra for Bloomsday 2021.

They were so attentive as they listened to poetry and readings at James Joyce Court, located across from the park.

It was great to see all the fashion from Joycean times!
Thanks to all involved!

Sponsored Walk Week in St Pat’s!

This week all the classes will be undertaking walking challenges in the hopes of raising money for new interactive smartboards.

Today saw two Senior Infant classes (Ms Power’s and Mr Ryan’s) walk around our local park, Griffith Park. The boys all wore their hi-vis jackets, had some lovely chats along the way, and behaved impeccably. Well done, boys!

It was great to get some fresh air in the sunshine. Check out these photos and video.
