Every class completed the Active Break Every Day challenge, as a whole school initiative, from November 11th to December 6th.

Every class  committed to taking an Active Break every day over the four weeks. The benefits of this are improved concentration in class, improved fitness and improved long term health benefits.

Classes used a variety of activity breaks including running breaks, dance breaks and exercise breaks. Many classes used Go Noodle for dance breaks and some classes ran laps.

Well done St George's!

Well done to our sixth class students who recently completed the Marathon Kids program!

Students in sixth class completed daily laps, gradually building up their running ability before completing the final mile of their marathon in Morton Stadium in Santry. Over the course of the eight weeks, students ran 26.2 miles in total! Everyone received a tshirt and a medal for taking part. Even Mr Falvey and Ms Needham joined in!

Well done sixth class!

We were particularly interested in this after the recent Rugby World Cup.

We celebrated Seachtain na Gaeilge in March. The children were encouraged to speak Irish throughout the day. They got Maith Thú cards when we heard them speaking Irish around the school. The class with the most Maith Thú cards was Ms Corrie’s Senior Infants – Maith Sibh. We also enjoyed a Céilí Mór sa halla, GAA training and in 6th class a fainne competition.

The children enjoyed an active day to mark Halloween.  The younger children enjoyed activities in the school organised by the Student Council.  They searched for pumpkins, moved through scary obstacle courses and had great fun.  The senior children went for a walk around the town in their scary costumes. The winners of the best costumes showed their outfits on the catwalk.  We had super spooky stories and pictures.   Well done to the student council who organised the day and the children who dressed up, wrote stories and .decorated their classrooms.
