All of our 3rd and 4th Class boys gathered in the hall yesterday (May 3rd) for the presentation of medals to the winners and runners-up of our internal school leagues. These leagues promote participation and are fully inclusive, and give all of our boys the opportunity to experience being part of a team. It was lovely to acknowledge the achievements and efforts of all the boys over the past number of months. We were also delighted to present individual awards for player of the tournament, ‘man of the final’ and most improved, in both 3rd and 4th Class. Well done to all, and a huge thank you to all the teachers involved.
Reminder: Scoil Phádraig will close at 2:40 p.m. on Friday 4 May and re-open at 9:00 a.m. on Monday 14 May. Enjoy the holidays!
We were delighted to support our boys who completed the ‘Join Our Boys’ run in the Phoenix Park recently. Through our non-uniform day and other fundraising, we managed to raise over €1,000 for the charity. Well done boys! We are very proud of you!
We were delighted to welcome John Kennedy from Clane Tidy Towns to Scoil Phádraig last Friday (27 April) to talk to our boys about biodiversity in the local area. John spoke about the campaign last year that led to the award of a Bronze Medal for the town, and how they plan on building on this work.
John also spoke about various aspects of our local environment, especially those which related to wildlife and flora. We learned about the impact our behaviour can have on the quality of life for these wildlife. Thanks to Ms. Collins, Mrs. Eyres and the Green Schools Committee for organising John’s visit. We hope to welcome him back when we secure our next Green Flag.
