Buaiteoirí!

 

We had a great day in Scoil Thomáis on Tuesday June 11th when our fantastic boys hurling team won the Cumann na mBunscol Hurling Final in their category. We've never won this competition in Scoil Thomáis before so it is a major achievement for the boys and their trainers, Mr Ryan and Mr Freeman. A HUGE congratulations to all of the boys. We are so proud of them!

School Walk 2024

Thank you so much to everyone who turned out to support our school sponsored walk on a rainy and miserable Sunday morning in the Phoenix Park. We may have been unlucky with the weather but we are very lucky with the support shown by our wonderful school community! Thank you to the Parents Association for organising the day which was enjoyed by all!

Viking Projects in Room 18

 

We have just finished our Viking Projects in 4th Class. We have really enjoyed the last number of weeks learning lots of interesting facts about the Vikings. Some of us created some Minecraft creations - longboats, settlements, longhouses and even Vikings. Others did some sketches and made 3D models. We did some Viking Art and presented our projects to the class. Some of us dressed up as Vikings for our presentations. We had a great day!
 

Holy Communion

Chalice

The boys and girls in Rooms 11, 12 and 13 received the Sacrament of First Holy Communion in St. Thomas the Apostle Church, Laurel Lodge on Saturday the 11th of May.

We hope that all of the pupils and their families had a lovely, special day.

Well done to all of the pupils, their parents, Father Damien, Ms Scally, Ms Golden, and Mr Ryan as well as Chris and Amanda, our Special Needs Assistants, for all of the hard work and preparation that they have put into the ceremony over the last few weeks.

Thank you also to the Parents Association who organised the receptions in the hall.

A visit from the Sam Maguire cup!

 

Many thanks to Conor from Castleknock GAA, along with Greg and Senan who visited Scoil Thomáis with the Sam Maguire cup today. The pupils were all delighted to have the cup visit their classroom. A special word of thanks to Mr Freeman and Ms Lenihan for bringing the cup to the classes and a big thank you to Ailís and Grete from Room 26 who were chief photographers on the day!

Spar 5-a-side Dublin Finals

The boys did a fantastic job representing the school at the Spar 5 a side Dublin finals in Clontarf. After winning 2 of the 3 group games, there were 3 teams tied on 6 points. The boys narrowly lost the playoff game 1-0. They played some outstanding football on the day. It is clear that they all have big futures ahead of them and we wish them every success. Thank you to all the parents for supporting the team throughout the school year.

Trócaire Game Changers Competition

The Trócaire Game Changers is a very big competition in which over 300 schools and youth groups participate.The aim of Trócaire game changers is to make a game about major problems around the world and to fix them. On Tuesday, we went to the Helix to participate in the competition. The game we created for it is called Transition to Green. The game’s goal is to make the player realise the damage that is caused by non renewable energy sources, and to transition to cleaner energy sources to stop pollution. We got to try the other group’s games. It was a tough competition, but in the end, we won first place. At the ceremony, Trócaire showed their new digital game called Madzi water crisis in Malawi. The game was about how hard it is to get clean water in Malawi. We really enjoyed this thrilling experience, we were amazed that we won in such a tight competition.

Lamb visits Scoil Thomáis

Junior and Senior Infants were very lucky to have a visit from "Cookie" the lamb. She got to meet the children in the outdoor classroom. We got to pet her and learn some interesting facts about lambs. Some children got to give the lamb a little drink. The lamb really enjoyed meeting lots of children today in Scoil Thomáis. A big thank you to the farmer who let "Cookie" join us today and to Ms Foley too for organising the visit!

Beautiful Flowers in Room 14

The children in room 14 made  lovely chalk pastel flowers. They used a blending technique, to make them look realistic. They look fantastic and just in time to welcome the sunshine!
