Our two fifth class boys put the final stickers on the poster for the Aldi Play Rugby Promotion. Thanks to all who sent us in stickers as every completed entry receives an Aldi Play Rugby Kit. There are fabulous prizes up for grabs and winners will be announced in January 2020.
First Class enjoyed Halloween celebrations before our mid-term break. There were some fantastic Halloween Costumes in the Junior Room this year!
Sixth Class in St Brendan’s N.S. organised a Halloween Art Competition. Conor and Daniel from 6th Class made a poster for the Junior Room and distributed the colouring pages and collected all the wonderful entries, which can be seen above. Edee and Matthew made a poster for the Middle Room and allowed entries to be colouring or drawing in this category. Oisín and Adam made a poster for the Senior Room and collected all the drawing entries. Then the sixth class came together to judge all the wonderful work. It was a very difficult task, as the entries were of such a high standard and the children had completed them outside school. Congratulations to all the winners Daniel Rohan (5th Class), Emma Hoyne (4th Class), Alfie Lanigan (3rd Class), Meabh Kenneally (3rd Class), Donie Cahill (2nd Class) and James Aylward (1st Class). A big thanks to sixth class who organised the prizes.
Today pupils from third, fourth, fifth and sixth classes went with Mrs. Dunphy to the Thomastown Athletic Club school’s Cross Country Event. They had great fun, with individual pupils from each class bringing home medals. Congratulations to our 5th Class mixed relay team who came in first place and to the 6th Class relay team who came third. You were all marvellous.
Congratulations to our two fifth class pupils on winning prizes for their entertaining and imaginative stories in the story writing category, and to our third class pupil who won a prize for his splendid painting. Well Done!
My team Carrickshock got into the Cumann Na mBunscoileanna Cill Chainnigh Roinn C Under 13 final. Our opponents were Coon Muckalee and our first game in Nolan Park was a draw. In the replay, we were beaten. My three best friends Adam, Oisín and Conor were on the team too. I wish to thank my coaches Múinteoir Naoise and Múinteoir Kieran. Richie Power presented us our medals during the Blitz, and he reminded us to keep playing and keep training.

Above is the SFI Discover Science and Maths Award badge for 2018/2019. Our school provided evidence of the children’s engagement with STEM in the following areas: 1. Science, 2. Technology, 3. Engineering, 4. Maths and 5. Stem Showcase. All classes in the school from Jnr Infants right up to Sixth Class helped us earn this award with their teachers Miss Butler, Mrs Dunphy, Ms Carroll and Jackie our SNA. We got excellent feedback on our work as you can see
A very good presentation of your year’s work. There is a great variety and range of STEM material with obvious participation by the children. You fully deserve your award. Keep up the good work and congratulations.
