2nd Class were very lucky to take part in Drama with Darren. We also went on our class trip last week to the Viking Splash tour, Stephen’s Green playground and McDonald’s! The biggest part of this year was our First Holy Communion – we had the best day!
Before the Easter break, 6th class paid the Hugh Lane Gallery a visit.
The class took time to examine the artwork and made fantastic sketches of their favourite pieces to discuss. There were lots of interesting conversations about art.
We also studied the beautiful stained glass window artwork to replicate during our own art lesson. The children took inspiration from the work of Harry Clake and added their own ideas to their work.
The children have also been learning about Irish history and the class found lots of paintings depicting famous figures such as Micheal Collins.
It was a fantastic trip with our creative 6th class students!
It’s been a very busy couple of months for the school football team. The school football team has been training very hard every Thursday after school this year. This really showed as the team put in some excellent performance in their 11 a side matches. The team scored some great goals and it was the first time a lot of the team had played on a full sized pitch.
The team also took part in the Spar school 5 a side competition. This section of the competition was for all the schools based in North Inner city Dublin. The boys put in some fantastic performances and went on to win the competition, winning the final 5-1. This means they are now qualified for the all Dublin finals. It was a great achievement for the team and they did the Rutland N.S school badge proud.
We were really lucky today as Music Generation Dublin City stopped by to play us some traditional music.
They brought in traditional Irish instruments such as the uilleann pipes, fiddle and bodhrán.
It was the perfect start to St Patrick’s week in our school.
Don’t forget to wear something green on Thursday!
