Home Language Stories at School

We were very lucky to have some parents come to school to read stories to the classes in their home languages. Thank you so much to Akemi, Bríd, Caroline, Diana, Edurne, Elena, Emin, Indrani, Jennifer, Nazli, Ramsha and Sylwia.

The children loved hearing all of the different languages, especially when it is mum or dad reading!


World Book Day 2023

We certainly had some interesting new pupils in school on Friday as we celebrated World Book Day. The children had the most wonderful day wearing costumes and describing their favourite book characters. The celebrations really sparked the children’s interest and love of reading. Please enjoy the photos below. We love books!




Our Morning Meetings featured on RTE’s News2day

We are so proud of 3rd class on News2day. The spoke so articulately about our school’s Morning Meetings where we name our feelings and build our emotional literacy. Well done to the children and their teacher Michael!

Emer Nowlan visits the school

We were beside ourselves with happiness on Friday when we welcomed Educate Together’s CEO Emer Nowlan to our school to unveil our School Quilt, an art project we made during the second lockdown.
Emer spoke to us at our Assembly about the inclusive ethos of Educate Together schools and how proud she is of the amazing school we have become in our first five years.
We also heard updates from the Green Schools Committee and Second Class shared their thoughts on the Value of the Month, Happiness. It was a full agenda as usual in our busy, happy school 🙂

Signs of Spring!

1st Class took a walk to nearby Belgrave Square where we looked for signs of Spring. We found insects, bird nests, daffodils, buds and lots more. Then we had so much fun in the sunny playground – possibly the best sign of Spring of all!

Active Learning in 1st Class

We have been up and at ’em lately in 1st Class!
We have been learning about length and measuring the school with metre long strings. We also had fun with the fabulous PE equipment paid for by the PGTA’s ‘Walk to Paddy’ fundraiser last year – the scooter boards are the standout hit.
Finally we have been enjoying the construction toys and have built Hogwarts, the Grand Canyon and a Ghostbusters trap house recently. There is no stopping us!

Animal Crackers!

First, Second and Tony’s class were treated to a workshop with the author and illustrator of the book Animal Crackers today, Sarah Webb and Alan Nolan. We had so much fun sharing and learning amazing facts about animals and really enjoyed the penguin draw-a-long. Thank you so much for including us in your Citywide Read, Rathmines Library – best neighbours ever!
