St. Pius X

Girls' NS!

This week at Pius X Girls'...

Senior Infants have just finished a 6 week block of yoga with the lovely Michelle. We went on yoga adventures to the zoo, the seaside and the forest and on the way we learned useful relaxation skills and practised our yoga poses. Namaste!

Ms. Ward’s 1st Class are delighted to completed their first project! They did fantastic projects on Spain!

On Sunday 9th of February the All Ireland Minor Schools swimming championships were held in the National Aquatic Centre in Abbotstown. Hundreds of boys and girls from all four provinces arrived to compete for their schools.

In all, there were 10 girls from St Pius X GNS competing. All these girls had qualified via the Leinster schools championships in October 2019, and were all proudly wearing the St Pius school colours. They all swam brilliantly and supported each other throughout the day.

Laura  from Ms Barron’s 5th class won silver in the All Ireland final of the girls U12 50metre freestyle. The girls U12 200metre freestyle relay team also won silver in a highly contested race. The team consisted of Emily, Alannah , Allison and Laura .

Senior Infants have been learning about China and celebrating the Chinese New Year, the year of the rat- ugh!!!

Ms. Godson doesn’t like rats! We made dragons out of junk, we made our own Great Walls, we had fun in the role play corner, cooking and putting on a parade. We even made wall hangings and bookmarks using Chinese style writing.

Well done to our 4 teams who competed at Friday’s Credit Union Quiz. A huge congratulations to our 4th class team for placing 2nd, only one point behind the winners. We are so proud of all the girls.

What a fantastic way to end Catholic Schools Week 2020 by celebrating with our pupils’ grandparents.  Our Grandparents’ Day was a great success. Thank you to everyone who visited and to the staff who put so much work into organising the day.

1st and 5th Classes make St. Brigid’s Day crosses.

Huge congratulations to Peter Walshe who plays for Tullaroan, Kilkenny.  They won the AIB Intermediate Club All Ireland Final against Fr. O’Neills (Cork) on Saturday 18th January in Croke Park.

We are very fortunate to have a player of such calibre coaching our girls in both football and camogie. Hopefully his St Pius team will have similar success in the coming months!

6th Class Visited Dreamspace at the Microsoft Headquarters.

On Monday the 20th and Tuesday the 21st of January we went on a trip to Microsoft. When we arrived we got a short tour of the first floor and they gave us some background knowledge on the company. We then got some yummy grapes and juice and we started to do some coding. We coded Minecraft agents to do some cool things and it was really fun. After that we had lunch which was sandwiches with crisps. Before we left we all received a bendy pencil. We had a brilliant trip and we hope to visit again someday!

Mr Walshe’s fourth class girls have been learning all about Italy over the past two weeks. Here they are showcasing and presenting their group projects. Some fantastic presentations girls. Well done!!

Senior Infants have been learning about weather. We finally got some dry windy weather so that we could bring our windsocks outside to check the direction the wind was coming from. We had lots of fun.

Ms. Ward’s 1st class got to enjoy a movie afternoon as a reward for filling their marble jar!

5th Class got to visit the fabulous new Museum of Literature Ireland (MOLI) and take part in a drama and writers workshop.

‘Mr. Neary’s 2nd class made a crib from fabric and fibre.’

Ms. Fitzmaurice’s first class girls were learning about homes and then made houses of their own using cardboard boxes and papiermâché.
