Mindfulness World Record, St. Patrick’s Hospital

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.

School choir sings at the Black Santa Appeal

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!
