Maths for Fun Ms. Walsh

We were unable to have parents in to play games with us this year but we didn’t let that didn’t stop us having fun! Our senior infants took home a Maths game to enjoy with their family. Thanks to everyone who took part 😃😃

50 Years A-Growing: St Dominic’s NS

This week, our school is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a display in the Hall researched and presented by Mr Looney’s 5th Class. Pupils from across the school have been invited to the Hall to read some of the projects, photos and interviews, and look at some of the historic items we have found around the school. Some of these date back to our foundation as Scoil Mhuire Loreto (Our Lady of Loreto Boys and Girls Schools) in 1970. There are projects on St Colmcille’s, with whom we merged in 2015, and displays on topics such as uniforms, Gaeilge and famous past pupils, as well as a long timeline from our school’s past.

It is very sad that we are unable to invite our parents, past pupils and wider community to view this superb display due to Covid restrictions. The pupils themselves made a video to introduce the display and we would love you to share this with parents and fellow past pupils.

Thanks to two past pupils of our own on the staff – Catherine Brady and Josh White – for all their help with putting the display together. Thanks too to the dozens of past pupils, former and current staff who have helped with interviews and photos. We hope to have some more photos available later in the week.

It’s beginning to look a lot like christmas….

We are all looking forward to Christmas in school. All the children are very excited! Sadly, we won’t be able to invite parents in this year, so please have a look at our website, Facebook and Twitter feeds over the next two weeks to see what we have planned for the children. Have a look at the video below which will give you all a little look at hwo the school looks.
