Other News This Week…

In other news, our 5th and 6th class girls’ soccer team made it through to the finals in the Dublin Spar 5’s soccer tournament this week.  We are very proud of their achievement.  Comhghairdeachas libh!

Many thanks to the parents and Audrey (gardening teacher) who have been working on our school garden this week.  It looks great and will be growing beautifully in a few weeks.

‘Bring a Book, Buy a Book’ will be on on Wednesday 21st March.  We are still looking for books to be donated so if you or any of your family have books at home that you are not using anymore please send them in to the school on or before Wednesday 21st March.  On that day all books will be on sale for 50 cent each.  There are great bargains to be had and we are looking forward to generating some money from it towards buying more books for the school.

A quick reminder that the school will be closed on Tuesday 20th March as the teachers must attend New Language Curriculum Training for the day in Dublin West Education Centre.

It’s been a great second week in the school for me.  A big thank you to all of the parents, teachers and pupils for making me feel so welcome.

Wishing you all a happy St. Patrick’s Day and a safe weekend and we will see you all back in school next Wednesday 21st March.

An tSeachtain Seo – Ag Céiliúradh Seachtain na Gaeilge 2018!

Bhaineamar an-taitneamh as Seachtain na Gaeilge an bhliain seo!  Bhí a lán rudaí ar siúl sa scoil – Tráth na gCeist, Seó Damhsa, Íoga, Scannáin, Amhráin, Comórtas Seanfhocail, Céilí srl.  Tháinig Dave isteach leis an ‘Sam Maguire’ agus chuaigh sé timpeall na ranganna ag freagairt ceisteanna faoi.  Tá gach rud le feiceáil ar https://twitter.com/lucaneastet.

Chan na páistí amhráin ‘Tá sí beo’ agus chualamar é ar siúl ar an raidió.  Tá sé ar an idirlíon freisin ar  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R32iXvMYqKc.

Bhí an-chraic ag na páistí agus na múinteoirí freisin.  Táimid ag tnúth go mór le Seachtain na Gaeilge 2019!

We all thoroughly enjoyed Seachtain na Gaeilge this year!  There were lots of things happening in the school – Table Quizzes, a dancing show, Yoga, Films in Irish, songs, an ‘Old Saying Competition’, a Céilí and much more.  Dave even brought the Sam Maguire in for all of the children to see and he answered a lot of questions about it.  If you want to see more check https://twitter.com/lucaneastet.

The children sang and recorded a song ‘Tá sí beo’ which was played on the radio and you can watch it on the internet on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R32iXvMYqKc.

The children and teachers all have great fun and we are really looking forward to Seachtain na Gaeilge 2019!

The Lucan East girls’ football team have made it through to the Dublin Spar 5’s finals!


Fantastic First Week Back!

What a fantastic first week back in the school it has been for me! I’ve had a great time catching up with all of the children and parents I know from when I worked here before and getting to know all of the new children and parents in the Lucan East community.  I feel extremely lucky to be working with such a dedicated, professional, hard-working team and I am excited for what we can do together in the future!

There has been lots of activities going on in the school this week.  From Clover in Junior Infants, to the school tours in 1st class, to the plays with Garbo Productions Theatre Company, to our celebrations for International Women’s Day.  It’s been a fun filled week and a great week from start to finish and I’ve enjoyed every minute.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Margaret Callan for all of the work she did with our 3rd class pupils for their productions this week.  The children got to experience all of the elements involved in the production of a show, including voice recording, puppetry and staging and they learned so much from it.  They put on two fabulous performances which everyone thoroughly enjoyed and we look forward to working with Garbo Productions again soon.

A big thank you also to Sinéad (home-school teacher) and the PTA for the coffee morning they organised for International Women’s Day.  It was a lovely morning and it was thoroughly enjoyed by the many ladies who came.

Next Week:

Seachtain na Gaeilge

Next week is Seachtain na Gaeilge and we have lots of great things in store for the children e.g. Irish dancing with Elaine, Tráth na gCeist, Scéalaí, Comórtas Seanfhocal, Íoga as Gaeilge and our annual Lá Glas agus Gael next Friday 16th March – remember to wear something green if you have it agus bígí ag caint as Gaeilge.

Book Collection for ‘Bring a Book Buy a Book’

If you have any books at home that are not being used anymore please send them into the school any day next week.  We are collecting them for our ‘Bring a Book, Buy a Book’ day on 21st March.  All of the books on sale that day will be 50 cent.  It is one of our favourite events as it encourages reading whilst raising funds at the same time!


Thank you all for making my first week back in the school so enjoyable.  I look forward to many more.

Have a great weekend everyone!
