On the 28th of October a Maths Quiz was organised for 3rd to 6th Class for Maths Week. The boys and girls really enjoyed themselves and there was lots of prizes given out to the winners!
Thanks to Ms. Kealy and Ms. Waters for organising it.
On the morning of October the 28th the boys and girls were joined by parents and family for our Halloween Assembly.
Pupils of the Term certificates were awarded as well as attendance awards for the students that haven’t missed a day since September.
The costumes were absolutely fantastic!
The boys and girls of St. James’s Primary School are very grateful to the Haven Pharmacy on James’s Street.
The pharmacy has kindly donated brand new First Aid Kits to the school as well as a new set of gumshields for our football teams.
Many thanks to Haven Pharmacy!
On the 10th of October 2016, boys and girls from 5th and 6th Class took part in a world record attempt for the most amount of people doing mindfulness together at the same time. They had to be at the school gate for 6.30 a.m!!
This was televised by TV3 and they were joined by people attempting the same record in Cork and Galway.
They had a fantastic morning and even got to meet Liam Ó Maonlaí from the Hot House Flowers and Adam Clayton from U2.
On Tuesday the 10th of May, some lucky students from 6th Class were brought over to St. James’s CBS Secondary School. They attended a ceremony because they were the lucky recipients of various scholarships to the school. Congratulations to everybody involved!
Santa took time out of his busy schedule to visit all the boys and girls in school today.
Take a look at his list and check it twice to see if your name is on it!!!
On Tuesday, the 15th of December, the school choir braved the elements to make their way to a cold and wet Dawson Street. When they got there they wowed passers-by as they sang Christmas carols and drummed on the Samba drums. They did all this in the name of raising money for charity.
Well done to everyone involved!
On Wednesday the 9th of December we had visit from Dublin footballer Dean Rock and the Sam Maguire cup. Dean spoke to us about what it takes to become a Dublin footballer and what is involved in the training. Hopefully in a few years time a few of our past pupils will be coming back to our hall with the Sam Maguire cup!
Up the Dubs!!!!
