2018 Visit of the Sam Maguire and Brendan Martin Cups

There was great excitement in Scoil Thomáis today when All Ireland Senior Football Champion Ciarán Kilkenny visited with the Sam Maguire cup. We were also lucky enough to be visited by a member of the All Ireland Senior Ladies Football Champion team and the Brendan Martin cup too! Pupils from Junior Infants and Senior Infants formed a guard of honour welcoming our special guests to the school. When Ciarán and the Sam Maguire arrived to the hall, there was a great reception from pupils and staff. Some pupils from 6th Class got the chance to ask Ciarán some questions like "Have you any advice for younger players?" and "Who is the hardest player you've ever marked?". Everyone sung "Sam is Coming Home" while Ciarán Kilkenny walked around the pupils with the Sam Maguire. 

Thank you to the organisers of the visit - we hope to see Sam back again next year after the 5-in-a-row win!

Maths Week in Scoil Thomáis

Pupils in all classes were involved in various extra Maths activities during the week to promote awareness and appreciation of mathematics in our world. These included Estimation and Puzzle Design competitions, Maths Trails, daily Problem Solving/Puzzle Time, IZAK 9, and the online maths website Mangahigh. Pupils from 2nd class also enjoyed participating in the curriculum-based Bricks4kidz Lego and Technic workshops. There were lots of maths posters and maths puzzles dotted around the school for pupils to challenge their numeracy skills. Well done to all the pupils who took part in the ‘Estimation’ and Puzzle Design Competitions. Results will be announced after Halloween.

Thanks to teacher Ms Deirdre Travers who organised Maths Week activities
