Mr Fagan’s 1st Class were busy painting and printing today to create some amazing Autumn
art! We went on a nature walk to discover the changing colours of the trees during this season and also collected leaves to bring back to the classroom to help us with our painting and printing. Mr Fagan was especially impressed with how patient the children were while working and how each piece of artwork looks so unique. Well done everybody!😊
We are running a competition to design a new jersey for our Dominic’s sports teams. Pupils can draw a new jersey or use the O’Neills “I Create” tool by going to http://icreate.oneills.com/ .
More details to follow next week. As for now, get creative!
5th class drew pictures of famous London landmarks. Our musical this year, “Oliver” is set in London so we thought it would be nice to learn more about it. Well done to Marina, our artist of the week who drew Buckingham palace. We also wrote poems about Autumn.
Scott and Peter were chosen to read them out on Dominic’s radio last week.
Huge congrats to our boy’s Gaelic footballers who triumphed in today’s Shield quarter-final in a tightly-contested match against Lucan East Educate Together. Despite falling behind in the first half, the Dominic’s boys fought hard to gain the lead in the second half, and held on with a gritty, determined display.
Goals from Muhsin (6th Ms Caulfield) and Jamie (5th) and points from Ciarán, Stewart and Aaron (all 6th Mr Looney) contributed to the 2-4 to 1-0 scoreline. A great defensive performance from “super-keeper” Josh and backs Eoin, Sean, Cain, Paul, Jack, Callum, Scott and Shane held the home team to just one score. Meanwhile, forwards David, Johnathon, Brandon and Thomas gave great assistance to the scorers and worked hard to retain the ball. Midfield co-captains Stewart and Ciarán gave man-of-the-match performances with fitness, skill and heart all in evidence.
St Dominic’s boys now go into the semi-final draw, as do their classmates in the girls Shield. Semi-finals will be played next week – and if either team win, it’ll be a trip to Croke Park for the final.
