Dance Invasion in 5th Class!

The pupils in 5th Class were treated to an Up-Close Dance Invasion on Tuesday, 15th of November.

Up-Close by Monica Muñoz was a dance performance, discussion, and workshop all in one. It was specially developed to bring dance to schools in an accessible way and to stimulate an appetite for dance too. The pupils really enjoyed the solo dance performance by Cris in particular! Thank you to Ms Diffley for organising the workshop for the pupils.

Oíche Shamhna faoi mhaise daoibh!

Scoil Thomáis re-opened at 9am on Monday 7th of November and we look forward to a busy term ahead!

Intel Mini Scientist 2022

The school hall was abuzz with excitement on Wednesday the 26th of October as the pupils of 5th Class set up their Mini Scientist exhibition in anticipation of the judges visit to the school on Thursday the 27th of October. The children have been working on their Intel Mini Scientist Project entries for the last few weeks both at home and in school and it was special for the pupils to be able to show off their hard work to the pupils of 3rd, 4th and 6th Classes on Wednesday. You can see a photo of each pupil and their project in the slideshow above. Hopefully you can get a flavour of the hard work in the lead up to the project and some of the excitement in the hall from the video below.

The pupils really enjoyed showing off their projects to the judges when they visited! They took a long time to make their decision, speaking to each project group and asking lots of questions.

Ms Galligan, Ms Golden, Ms O'Keeffe and Ms O'Mahony are very proud of the hard work, time and effort that their pupils have put into their projects so even though Intel judges had to choose one winning project, all of the pupils are winners in their teachers' eyes! Maith sibhse a pháistí!

A special thank you to Ms Galligan for organising everything for the pupils in 5th Class!

Well done to the winning project group!
