Move Well Being Well
Recognise anyone . . ?
The boys in Senior Infants and First Class took part in a Fruit Tasting Morning today which was organised by Ms. Robinson. There was a huge variety of fruit on offer which can be seen here in the photographs – melon, mango, bananas, passion fruit, kiwi and pineapple to name but a few. We were all pleasantly surprised by all of the boys’ willingness to taste fruits they’d never tried before!
A huge thank you to Lidl in Nutgrove and Tesco Rathfarnham who kindly donated some of the fruit to the school. A special thanks also to Helen, Ms McWeeney and Ms Beatty who also helped with setting up the room and preparing all of the fruit.

Well done to the St Pius X BNS Tennis Team for the performances this week. After beating St Andrew's on Thursday they lost out to Booterstown on Friday. All our home games are played courtesy of Templeogue Tennis Club. On Friday with the inclement weather, the boys played in the club's impressive dome. Best of luck with their next match this week and huge thanks to Mr Kealy for all his work in the area of tennis in our school.
Eoghan in Ms. Stewart's class was away skiing and picked up an award for racing down the ski slope. Well done Eoghan.
Well done also to Dylan in Ms. Carroll's class who came second in the Tae-Kwan-Do championships at the weekend.
