Myths and Legends in Room 17


Room 17 have been busy constructing in the past weeks. While exploring Irish Myths & Legends we created armour and weapons to re-imagine a Celtic battle by the fierce Tuatha Dé Dannan. 

We also designed boats to travel through the Suez Canal while learning about Ireland’s imports and exports. Thankfully our cookies made it ashore!!

Room 5 are learning lots!

The children in Room 5 have been very busy engaging in lots of exciting activities. They have been participating in gross and fine motor stations, literacy stations and lots of play!

September in Room 8

Mr Troy’s First Class creating Free Art with the theme based on their summer holidays. Children focused on using bright primary colours to create their art pieces. 

Mr Troy’s First Class, Room 8, starting their Digital Learning Programme with some Scratch Junior coding. The children created their own sprites/characters and edited them using their own imagination.

Room 6A are settling in!

Room 6A are enjoying their new start and are having lots of fun settling into Scoil Thomáis. We have had a busy September making new friends!

Scoil Thomáis Chess Keepers 2023 - 2024

Introducing our new Chess Keepers! Being a Chess Keeper is a busy role with a lot of responsibility. Already this quartet has set up chess in fifth and sixth classes. We wish them the very best for the year ahead and we are confident that they will “check mate” every challenge!

Rubgy in 5th and 6th Class


The pupils in 5th and 6th Class are lucky to have James from Leinster Rugby visit the school for the next 6 weeks. James will be teaching the pupils some key rugby skills on the All Weather Pitch and who knows, the next Aoife Doyle or Johnny Sexton might come from Scoil Thomáis!

Thank you to pupil Darragh Watters for being the photographer during the first session!

Scoil Thomáis Chief Librarians 2023 - 2024

Introducing our new Chief Librarians! Being a chief librarian is a challenging role with a lot of responsibility. Already this quartet has opened the School Library in record time and has shown the new teachers how to use the library. We wish them the very best for a bookish year filled with magic, thrills and the odd dose of detective work!
