Bumbulance Visits St. Marnock’s N.S.

At the assembly Bumbulance came! A lady who looks after the fundraising for Bumbulance spoke to us about Bumbulance. There even was a adult sized Bumbulance there and we got our photos taken with him. We got Bumbulance stickers, bookmarks and tattoos. There was also a very funny author there. Her name was Patricia Forde. She read one boom to us called ‘Frogs Do Not Like Dragons’. She made it so funny! She also was telling us about a book she wrote called ‘The Wordsmith’ which will be out in December.

Sam Maguire Visits St. Marnock’s N.S. 2016

Today, was a very exciting day in St. Marnock’s N.S.. Sam Maguire came to visit the boys and girls and there was great excitement you can imagine. The children wore their blue colours to show their support.

Shane Carty, a past pupil of St. Marnock’s, was the Dublin player who came with the cup to show it off.

He was very kind to answer a few questions from the boys and girls and even paraded up and down the hall so they could get a close look at the famous cup.

The boys and girls showed their love of Dublin by belting out songs like ‘Molly Malone’.

Here are a few snaps!!!

This is what the kids had to say!

It was so heavy. We sang songs called ‘Sam is coming Home’ and ‘Molly Malone’. The man who brought it in was called Shane Carty. Almost everyone had their Dublin jerseys on and the teachers had as well! It was a very good day. Everybody had lots of fun!

Garda Band Visits St. Marnock’s N.S. June 2016

The day the Gardaí came was absolutely brilliant! The sun was shining so bright, it could blind you! The Gardaí could play anything. They had instruments from tiny flutes to massive tubas. I had never experienced any day hotter or more fun!

Sam from Mr. Corkery’s 4th Class

Yesterday, the 1st of June a Garda Band came to our school. They were very good on their instruments. They played the Mission Impossible, Let it Go, Pink Panther and The Simpsons theme tune and so much  more. The conductor was very funny. He got two people, one from Junior Infants and one from 6th class. They were both told to conduct a piece each. Over all it was BRILLIANT!

‘Grease’ The Musical Comes To Visit The School!

Last week, we were lucky enough to have the cast from the musical ‘Grease’ come to the school to sing a few hits from their production. 

These children were from the secondary community school in Portmarnock. 

Their singing, dancing and costumes were fantastic and they really impressed us!

Take a look for yourself!
