Forth Class Full of Future Alan Sugars?

We finished our Junior Achievement Programme and were invited to Pioneer Investments, Georges Quay Plaza, to celebrate our Graduation!

This programme helped us learn a lot about business. We learned about the different types of business, how they run and how to be successful.

When we arrived we got the lift to the 8th floor and looked out over all of Dublin city. We got certificates to celebrate our hard work. It was so cool being in the fancy top-floor boardroom!

Thank you to Alan in Pioneer Investments who worked with us and held this fun party for us!

A very important meeting…

We loved hearing the story ‘The Gingerbread Man’, so we decided to make our own!20151218_092123

 

We used gingerbread dough, cookie cutters, rolling pins and lots of bits and bobs to decorate them.

Nativity Play 2015

On Wednesday morning, a very well rehearsed and professional 1st Class took to the stage to perform the Nativity Play. Assisted by their teachers, Ms. Lambe, Ms. Doherty, Mrs. Barror and the school choir, they put on a fantastic performance. Well done to everyone involved. Watch the video below to get a taste of what happened.


Santa visits St. James’s Primary School

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!!!

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!


The Visit of the Sam Maguire Cup

 

 

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!!!!
