St Peter’s Post #27


Welcome to our weekly online newsletter, the St Peter’s Post! This week was a short one as we were off for Monday and Tuesday, but we packed plenty into our three days. We had a visitor from Tasmania, Wicklow Sports and Bike Week, along with posts about our own Sports Day and our participation in the Excited Festival.

The main headlines from last week were:

  • We took part in the EXCITED Digital Learning Festival last Saturday and had a fantastic time. Read all about it here.
  • We blogged about our Sports Day – check out our podcast, Vines and Animotos here!
  • We’d a very special visitor on Wednesday. Sue Wyatt is a teacher from Tasmania, who came to talk to us all about blogging and Australia. Read all about her visit here and her account of her visit on her pet Tasmanian Devil’s blog here.
  • Shell, who is Alex and Caoilynn’s mum, sent us photos of the First Holy Communion Day through Twitter. Read all about the day and watch the Animoto of the photos here. Thanks a million, Shell!
  • We took part in Bike Day on Friday – read all about what Bike Day entails here.
  • 5th class started their new Design and Make project by researching Bray Seafront. Check out their afternoon here.
  • 2nd class had a brilliant ‘Roots of Empathy’ session and a fantastic podcast. Listen to it here.
  • ‘Wednesday for Parents’ was all about the Bucket and Spade List. What is a Bucket and Spade List? Find out here.

In other news this week:

  • There was a really exciting announcement from Mr Foley, Paddy and Mr Kinsella – they’re taking on a very cool challenge as a fundraiser for the school. You might have seen it in the Bray People this week – they’re attempting to drive around the 32 counties in 24 hours! There’ll be a lot more about this fantastic challenge on the blog over the next few weeks and they really appreciate all the support so far.
  • Best of luck to all past pupils and older brothers and sisters sitting exams at the moment!
  • We’d a great day at the Wicklow Sports, organised by Cumann na mBunscol. Well done to all the participants

  •  World Cup fever is building in St Peter’s – 2nd class have chosen their countries already!
  • 5th class are using SketchUp to plan their STEM projects – we’re looking forward to seeing what they get up to!

  • Tommy was in on Friday to coach Gaelic football – we all really look forward to his visits. His good nature and sense of fun makes him a really popular part of St Peter’s!
  • 4th class continued their work on their stop-motion films. We can’t wait to see the finished films!
  • Lots of talk in 6th class about graduation this week – we can’t believe that it’s almost time for them to move on. We’re looking forward to the Student-Teacher soccer match!
