Election Fever is hotting up . . . even in St. Pius. Ms. Corcoran's boys have been making election posters and holding a class election. I wonder what the campaign issues were . . . homwork, lunch breaks, homework, uniforms, homework, more PE, homework . . . ?
Heather Cup Champs
Toby and Eli performed in the speech and drama competition of Feis Maitiú last week. Toby recited 'Fish' (described by the adjudicators as 'vocally very impressive') while Eli rendered his interpretation of 'Wizard'. Both boys were in the winners' enclosure. Well done Toby and Eli.
We have to say that when the boys let us hear their recitations in school, both performances were word perfect and beautifully executed.
Dáire is only in senior infants and already is making an impact on the biking scene. He is lying in first place in the Regional Championships and in fourth place in the Nationals. Well done Dáire.
Questions and Answers
It was like a Vincent Brown show in Ms. Corcoran's class on Wednesday. Mr. Kerin's fifth class paid a visit and were subjected to a barrage of hard questions by the first class lads. Even Mr. Kerins and Ms. Corcoran were stumped by some of the questions. Why is the sky blue? / / Why is grass green?// Where is the dead centre of Ireland . . .

Niall plays Gaelic Football for Dublin and Templeogue Synge Street. He brought with him the Leinster Cup and the U21 All Ireland to show to the boys.
The Little Open Door
By Martin Breen, Ms. Beatty's Class
Where does this door lead to?
Well, who should know?
We could maybe open up and see . . .
But it would be too small
For either you or me!
To a land of magic maybe?
Although it could only fit a baby!
High in the sky
I sit and wonder why
The little yellow door knob
Rattling to and fro
So where does this door lead to?
Well, how would I ever know?
CROKE PARK HERE WE COME. A thrilling semi-final saw our hurlers one point victors over Hollypark. Details of arrangements for final to follow. Well done to all their players and their coaches!
Real Easter Bunnies
Ezra brought Pepsi and Amigo and friends into class. The baby rabbits were born on Easter Sunday.
Ms. Devenney's boys have greeted summer with their own versions of sunflowers.
Fifth Class Projects
Ms. Smith set the boys a tough task last week: design and create projects and present them to their fifth class contemporaries in the Girls' School. There's nothing like a jury of your peers!
Dean and Stan
|Dean with the medal he won at the football féile. Well done, Dean||Stan with his adjudicator's report from the Navan Choral festival. Stan picked up the top prize for his piano playing. Well done Stan.|
