The Senior Greens played an impressive game in Bushy yesterday against St Michaels from Ailesbury Road. All members of the panel put in strong performances and leaves the Senior Greens at the top of the table. A final win next week will see a league win. Well done to the boys and their coaches Ms Brogan and Ms Redmond!

Congrats to the Junior Greens who beat Ballyroan in their last game on Tuesday! They are the top team in South Dublin! An amazing feat for any school. Well done to the players, their GAA clubs and of course our managers - Mr Geraghty and Mr Murtagh! Meath and Longford seemed an unlikely match but have brought silver to the cabinet in the school! Huge thanks to the parents for all the lifts and support throughout the season!

The first class boys had an unbe-leaf-able time in Bushy Park during the week where they were on the hunt for all the signs of Autumn. Back in the classroom, they had so much fun using the leaves for an Autumn Art lesson!

Bushy At Sunrise

Pictured are our Junior Green teams training in Bushy Park this morning BEFORE school. The boys will take part in a division one final tomorrow (Tuesday) in Bushy Park vs local rivals Ballyroan. The boys' early attendance is a testament to their commitment and that of their parents and coaches.

Tennis Coaching Record

What a read ....

It's not often we have to check the roll to make sure someone is in the right class but that happened today. This is Oisín in Ms. Carroll's second class who wrote a self-illustrated 12 page 14 page story. Mr Coyle just couldn't believe he is only in second class and had to double check the enrolment. Oisín tells us he is already planning his next story.
