On the week of the June Bank Holiday, from the 8th until the 11th of June, the 5th classes will be picking up litter around the school as part of our ‘Litter Action Week’. The Student Council decided that this event would be greatly beneficial to both our school and our local environment. We hope that our week is a great success and that it might even become an annual event! Thank you to Katie from the student council for designing our fantastic poster!

The 5th Class Pupils in Room 23 have been practicing their numeracy skills through a series of station learning activities! Maith sibh, gach duine!
Our Student Council members were delighted to have the opportunity to meet and interview local TD Jack Chambers during his visit to Scoil Thomáis. The boys and girls prepared questions on behalf of their classes to ask Minister Chambers and learned so much about what inspired him to get into politics, his job as Minister of State for Sport and the Gaeltacht, and his role as Government Chief Whip.
A big 'thank you' to Jack Chambers for a very informative and enjoyable visit!
Mr. O'Mahony's class have been learning all about the environment during their SESE lessons. Take a look at their wonderful work which really conveys how everything we do has an effect on the environment! Room 20 are now much more conscious about about their environmental footprints!
Ms.Goulding's 5th Class pupils painted these beautiful, vibrant Irish cottages inspired by their learning on The Irish Famine. Very well done to the super talented boys and girls in Room 24!
We have updated a number of documents in relation to Child Safeguarding and Child Protection recently. These, along with other important polices and documents, can be found on the school website under About Us/Policies. We have made the documents available to read below too.
Laurel Lodge Environmental Group has been getting stronger despite the lockdown. Now up to 45 members, you are likely to see our volunteers out litter picking throughout Laurel Lodge on Sunday mornings. 3 of our team recently took on a deep clean of Tír na nÓg Park and worked steadily at it week to week until it was completed. The park is transformed.
10 of our team also adopted patches in our lovely community garden, working with Castleknock Community Centre to return it to glory. Future plans include a local pollinator plan and flower meadows. And it’s still only our first year! We are so grateful for all our members’ hard work, all done safely without mixing of households.
Don't forget there's still time to purchase tickets for our fantastic fundraising Easter Raffle. You can see a selection of the fantastic prizes to be won in these photos.
