Friends For Life

Friends for life

This is a program aimed at boys in 5th and 6th class.  Mr.  Gillen and Ms. McLoughlin attended a training course for this in January and were extremely impressed with both the content and the way it is delivered to the pupils.  

FRIENDS for Life helps young people cope with feelings of fear, worry, and depression by building resilience and self-esteem and teaching cognitive, behavioural, and emotional skills in a simple, well-structured format  We hope the boys and their families really engage with the content of the course.

If parents have any questions about the course, please contact the school or click on the link below for more information:

Just Dance!

This month's PE lessons have been dedicated to the art of Dance!  Anybody who was at the last assembly were treated to an excellent routine performed by 6th - choreographed by our very own Ms. McLoughlin.  5th got some inspiration from that performance!!!

We've learned a few new moves and added our own to come up with some exciting routines of our own.  Here's our latest effort.  A big thank you to Roisin Gillen from DCU who came in to work with the boys of 5th and 6th this week.

 

Enjoy!!!!

Bord Gáis Energy Student Theatre Awards

The Bord Gáis energy student theatre awards are up for grabs again this year.  Last year, one of the students from our school finished in the top 100 in the country!!  That was a really good achievement and one that we hope to repeat this year!

The competition aims to allow children to be as creative as they can and there are no limits to the ideas or concepts that they explore.  This year, the boys from fifth are entering the competition.  They will be writing a script for a scene in a play. 

We are really looking forward to reading these scripts, and possibly seeing one or two on the big stage!!!

Good luck to all our boys entering!!!

For further details on the this competition see the link below:

2nd place in All Ireland Junior Writers Competition!

Well done to Oisín who secured 2nd place in the Rotary International Young Writers Competition. Oisín wrote about his love of Gaelic and hurling, and how much playing for his local club means to him. Oisín illustrated how vibrant and energetic a community Donnycarney is, and the important place Craobh Chiaráin holds amongst the people of Donnycarney. Oisín is a member of the senior football team, and his hard work in training is clearly playing off, with some fantastic performances over the past few weeks, helping us secure a place in the semi final this Thursday in May Park. Scoil Chiaráin ABÚ!!!
