Seachtain na Gaeilge sa Halla!

An tseachtain seo caite bhí Seachtain na Gaeilge ann. Bhí spórt agus spraoi ag gach duine. Bhí gach cailín agus buachaill ag caint a lán Gaeilge ar scoil agus bhí siad go hiontach. Bhí na páisí ag canadh as Gaeilge, ag déanamh damhsaí ó Éirinn agus go leor rudaí eile.

Feic ar na pictiúir agus ar na físeáin. 


Bag Packing – Dunnes Stores

Thank you to all the parents who gave up their time on Friday 28th and Saturday 29th to bag pack in our local Dunnes Stores.  It was very busy for the majority of the time however the time flew by chatting to all the customers and the staff.  The result of our efforts was a totally of €1900 raised for the school.  This will go into our fund towards extending our school play yard at the rear.

We had been very busy in St. Marnock’s N.S. during the week of Hallowe’en. We decided to give the garden a spooky make over to celebrate. Oh what fun we had decorating the garden with all things Hallowe’en. Take a look for yourself. We maybe biased but we thought it looked great!

A special thanks to Ms. Thomas for collecting all the props and decorations!

Yesterday was Cross Country. There were lots of schools: St. Marnock’s, St. Fiachra’s, Holy Family, St. Helen’s and Scoil Ciarán. St. Marnock’s won 3 gold and 4 silver. Ciara in Ms. Kennedy’s class won a silver medal and Anna from Mr. Maughan’s came sixth, so well done to you two! St. Helen’s girls U10s fell on top of each other, a bit like dominoes! St. Fiachra’s and Scoil Ciarán were big schools and the other schools were small schools. Cross country was on in Woodlands in Portmarnock. Some children fell but they got back up and kept running so we know that everyone has a great spirit. Wednesday was a great day (except the grass was slippy so it was hard to run!) Our old principal Mr. Keaveny was there and we were all happy to see him again! My race (U10s) was fairy hard. People were ripping and falling and getting up again! The races were meant to be fun and not competitive so I hope everyone is happy!

Yesterday was Cross Country. St. Marnock’s were up against a number of schools like St.Helen’s and Holy Family. St. Marnock’s won a number of medals for teams and five individual medals for girls and boys. I hope everyone participates next year. They will do well! Cross Country could not have been held without Mr. Maughan, Ms. Kennedy and Mr. Greene. 

David – Mr. Maughan’s 3rd Class 

Cross Country was on in Woodlands. There was lots of people doing the races. Schools from Dublin came to compete. I came somewhere between 23rd-99th place. I will try to beat it next year!

Dáire – Ms. McGinty’s 3rd Class

Cross Country was on in Woodlands. It was a lovely day. I completed it yesterday  and I came in at 43rd place. I tried my best. Next year I  will try beat  43rd place. You are against lots of other children from other schools in Cross Country such as St. Helen’s, Belgrove and much more. 

Ben – Ms. McGinty’s 3rd Class

Yesterday our school competed in Cross Country. The event lasted one hour and had six age groups competing in it. The schools competing in Cross Country were St. Helen’s, St. Andrew’s, St. Aine’s, St, Fiachra’s, Holy Family, Belgrove and of course St. Marnock’s. The event was great crack and if anyone was unsure whether or not they want to go, I can personally tell youto go for it. It’s only a run! It’s not the end of the world if you don’t win a medal!
