Our mini fact files on the counties of Ireland.

In Gaeilge we did a lot of work based on the theme of Mé Féin for the month of September. We learned 6 sentences each week and as a result by the end of the month we could write our first Irish essay based on Mé Féin!!

One of the big perks of 6th class is getting the chance to rowing on Friday morning in Islandbridge! Each Friday 8 boys spend one hour on the river learning proper rowing technique and all about water safety!!

Run A Marathon

Back in September we took on the challenge of trying to run the distance of a full marathon which is 42km!! Over the next number of weeks we went out each day and ran at least 1km! We finally reached our target of 42km. We were all presented with t shirts to mark the occasion! It's a huge achivement to be able to say we have run a marathon and we are all very prud of ourselves!!!
