Lily fundraises for Temple Street

We are so proud of a little girl called Lily in Junior Infants who took the brave step for any 6 year old girl and cut off her hair in aid of Temple Street Hospital. Lily donated all 16 inches of her hair to the Rapunzel Foundation and raised €1030 for Temple Street Hospital.  Ger Donnellan presented Lily with a certificate and a badge and pin and thanked her for fund raising such a huge amount. Her family, friends, teacher and all the staff are so very proud of her.

Seachtaine na Gaeilge

Seachtain na Gaeilge
Seachtain na Gaeilge

Seachtain na Gaeilge kicked off in St. Peter and Paul’s on March 4th and we’ve all been making a huge effort to speak more Irish throughout the day. The children are being encouraged to use their cúpla focail with a special reward going to the Gaelgóir na Seachtaine in each class.

Gach lá we’ve had weather reports, the news and a poem or two read over the intercom.
The children have all entered the seanfhocal art competition, with one lucky winner being chosen from each class.
A highlight of our celebrations was the performance from Mairéad agus Aisling, who played some wonderful traditional Irish music for the children. The children learned about the musical instruments and had great craic clapping and tapping along to the beat.

Seachtain na Gaeilge culminated with our Lá Glas on Thursday the 14th, where the children dressed in green, white and orange.

An exciting ceolchoirm ran throughout the day with performances from every class. Each class level was fantastic.

Míle buíochas to all the teachers and SNAs for preparing the children for all the activities, and to everyone who helped make Seachtain na Gaeilge 2019 such a success.

World Book Day

We had a fantastic World Book Day here at SS Peter and Paul on Thursday 7th March! The day began with monsters, superheroes, animals, and all sorts of other fantastic looking characters pouring in the school gates, each one carrying a great book for Drop Everything And Read at 10am

The children all looked amazing and there were some VERY imaginative outfits. Here are just a few photos from around the classes...
