County Meath Spelling Bee Final 2019

Pupils from thirty-two primary schools across Meath came to St Mary’s today and participated in the annual County Spelling Bee Final! Our very own ‘Spelling Champion’ didn’t have too far to travel, but she brought plenty of support along with her – her family, her classmates in 6th Class and her teacher, Ms Dineen. The tension was high from start to finish. We are all extremely proud of ‘our star’ for reaching the final round and finishing in the runner-up spot! Despite not making it to the Leinster Final, the ‘second best speller in Meath’ told us that she really enjoyed the competition! You only have to look at her beaming smile in the photo below to realise that she meant it!

Ceol, Craic agus Rince – 14ú Márta

Tháinig na páistí ó sheomra 15 (Rang 2) agus ó sheomra 16 (Rang 3) le chéile chun tionól iontach a dhéanamh dúinn sa halla inniu. Chan siad go leor amhráin trí Ghaeilge i dteannta le gníomhaíochtaí. Ghléas siad suas agus rinne siad dráma. Bhain an lucht féachana taitneamh as an ndráma agus thug siad bualadh bos mór do na páistí. Ag deireadh an tionól chualamar ceol traidisiúnta sa halla agus i bpreab na súl thosaigh roinnt mhaith páistí ag rince. Bhí siad ar fheabhas! D’fhág na páistí, na tuismitheoirí, na múinteoirí agus na cuairteoirí an halla go sona sásta. Tá Seachtain na Gaeilge thart anois, ach beidh sé ar ais an bhliain seo chugainn, le cúnamh Dé!

Bhí Tráth na gCeist againn sa halla tráthnóna inniu (12ú Márta). Ghlac go leor páistí ó rang a trí go rang a sé páirt sa chomórtas. Chaith siad uair amháin ag smaoineamh agus ag caint trí Ghaeilge. Thaitin an gníomhaíocht go mór le gach duine!

St Mary’s Spelling Bee 2019

We held the final of our school’s Spelling Bee yesterday afternoon. Nineteen pupils from 5th and 6th Classes took part. The audience, made up of all the pupils from 2nd to 6th Classes, waited nervously as the spellers approached the microphone one by one. Some words proved to be more challenging than others. Eventually, the winner was crowned. Our ‘Champion Speller’ will now go forward to represent us in the county final. It will take place here at St Mary’s on 3rd April and we all wish her the very best of luck!

Road Safety Assembly and Clelia Murphy’s Visit

This morning the pupils in Room 18 reminded us all about the importance of being alert and staying safe on our roads. They used Hi-Viz jackets, helmets, a bicycle, signs, posters  and an action song during their assembly. Clelia Murphy (from “Dancing With The Stars”) came to see the assembly. After the assembly, she showed us some of her stylish shoes from the dance competition and she taught us how to dance the Charleston! In return, we taught her how to do ‘The Floss’!
