Maths Week 2019 in St. Pius X G.N.S.

5th class girls have Maths Eyes! Do you?

Ms. McCarthy’s Junior Infants are doing great work during their Literacy Stations. They are using kinetic sand, play dough, paint and counters to copy and make different pre-writing patterns!

On Sunday St. Pius GNS was represented at the Leinster Schools Swimming Championships in the National Aquatic Centre by 12 fantastic young athletes. Caitlin, Alison, Hannah-Rose, Alannah, Sadhbh, Shona, Sylvia, Ruby, Emily, Grace, Grace and Laura all took part in individual events and various relays. The girls swam fantastically and the majority qualified to represent the school in the Irish Schools Nationals in February.

In addition to that, Laura, won a silver medal in the 50m free, the U10 girls won silver in their freestyle relay and U12 girls won silver in both their medley and freestyle relays.

They represented the school with such pride. They were a great support to each other, a team that should be congratulated for their hard work and commitment.

Last week at Pius X Girls'...

On Thursday we celebrated National Singing Week and marked World Mental Health Day with the Big Sing! The whole school gathered in the yard to sing some of our favourite songs together. Choral and group singing has been scientifically proven to release endorphins which are natural chemicals released in our bodies that make us feel good – the same ones that are released when we laugh! Solo and group signing have also been proven to reduce stress, increase focus and concentration and improve memory. We certainly had great fun today! Happy National Singing Week everyone!

4th and 5th class were treated to a spectacular performance of “A Little Princess” by M&M Theatrical Productions on Tuesday 8th October. It was a funny and lively performance that kept the children entertained throughout yet managed to convey an important anti-bullying message within the story.  The actors were fantastic and the sets really helped bring the story to life.

Ms McGuinness’s Junior Infants love working with their buddies from Ms O’Reilly’s 6th Class! Look at the beautiful artwork they created!

Mr. Neary’s class made paper helicopters as part of a Science lesson.
