Scoil Thomáis PA SVP Appeal

Our Annual Food Appeal for Society of St Vincent de Paul organised by the school and Scoil Thomáis Parents Association unfortunately cannot take place in its usual format this December.

However, Scoil Thomáis Parents’ Association are encouraging school families to support the SVP Christmas Appeal this year by donating vouchers that will allow needy families to buy food items (in shops i.e. Blanchardstown SC, Pennys, Dunnes, Lidl, Aldi, Supervalu, Tesco etc.) and by gifting age appropriate children’s toys for the Laurel Lodge/Carpenterstown SVP branch.

Our school families are always so generous with this appeal and we hope to see the same generosity of spirit again this year!

More information can be found in the poster above and if you have any queries, please contact the PA on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Room 21 walk in the Locality

Mr Finnegan's 6th class had an enjoyable walk down to the 12th Lock on Friday, 27th of November. As they walked, they took note of the many local features of the Laurel Lodge Green and the canal area. The pupils worked in pairs to gather as much information as they could. Well done to the pupils for their excellent behaviour as they were out and about!

Winter Silhouettes in Room 13

Ms. Galligan’s class painted beautiful winter silhouettes this week. We started out with some white paint for the moon, and gradually blended in blue or purple paint to darken the background bit by bit. After that, we used black paint to create our winter silhouettes. Finally we added some snow. We hope you like them!

Number Fun in Room 3!


Ms.Boyce's class had great fun learning all about the number 5! They even integrated maths into their art lesson to create these super sparkly number fives! Well done, boys and girls!

Skittles experiment in Rooms 13 and 14

The boys and girls in room 13 and 14 had great fun experimenting with skittles. We placed the skittles in a circle around the edge of a plate and made predictions about what would happen when we poured warm water over them. The warm water dissolved the sugar coating and food colouring. The sugar and food colouring diffused through the water to create a rainbow. This experiment was as fun as it was delicious!
