To celebrate the great teamwork and sporting behaviour shown by St. Peter's pupils at the FAI we held an ice-cream party in the classroom followed by a giant game of rounders :)
We had a Feast of Football with two boys teams entering the Spar Primary 5s. One of the teams progressed to the Quarter Finals but sadly our FAI journey ended there. We are so proud of the boys for how well they played and the great teamwork they displayed on the day.Well done boys!!
We've had an influx of ladybirds this week and our environmentally conscious pupils constructed a Ladybird Hotel for our visitors. It even has a door!
Planting has begun again in the garden. Winnie taught us how to dig a drill deep enough for potatoes -to foil those pesky squirrels! We also planted onions and herbs.

On Friday, we were treated to a workshop from Alan, a scientist, and Beth, an engineer, from Shire. In a jam-packed session we learned how and why to wash our hands, used UV lights to track "germs", tested acids and bases, Alan demonstrated how to make a bottle rocket and we explored the density of a variety of liquids. It was a really fun workshop and we learned a lot. Many thanks to Alan and Beth!!
Leinster Schools Orienteering
We had a great day at Malahide Castle entering into our first Leinster Schools Orienteering event. The children balanced speed with map reading skills and did exceptionally well. Two members of our class finished in the top 5 of their respective groups! Even though our limbs may be stiff we are looking forward to the next orienteering event :)
A big welcome to our new 5th & 6th Class! We are looking forward to a fun and productive year ahead.
This month we began reading our class novel "Goodnight Mister Tom". We are learning how children were evacuated during World War II. We designed propaganda posters similar to those produced by the British Government to encourage families to engage with the evacuation process.
6th Class Graduation
It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to our 6th Class students but we know you will all continue to go from strength to strength in this next chapter of your lives. We will miss you all so much! Go n-éirí an t-ádh libh!
We would like to extend a massive thank you to Karen Geraghty, mum of one of our 6th Class boys, who created this stunning cake for the graduating class. It tasted as good as it looks :)
We are learning about the Renaissance this month and we have marvelled at some of the iconic art created during this period of history. Inspired by Michelangelo's painting of the ceiling in the Sistine Chapel we tried to imagine what it would be liked if we were commissioned to paint the ceiling of Saint Peter's Church here in Dunboyne. We had great fun painting underneath our desks!
FAI Primary 5s - North Leinster Finals
We are so proud of our Girls 5-a-side soccer team who played extremely well in the North Leinster Finals. We drew our first match 2-2, lost our second 4-1 and drew 1-1 in our last match. The girls played with strength and determination, stuck together as a team and scored a number of crucial goals under intense pressure. We didn't win the North Leinster Finals but we represented ourselves to the highest standard and inspired the rest of our school community to strive for success. Thank you to the boys from 5th & 6th Class and the parents of the team, who came along for the day to lend their support. The handmade banners were such a boost! Thanks to the PTA who donated money for new shorts, socks and our school name printed on the back of our jerseys. A special thank you to Coach Winnie who encouraged and guided the team every step of the way. The girls celebrated their success with ice-cream cones and a party back in the parish centre with the whole school. Congratulations Girls, we are all so proud of you!

Winners of the Meath Finals FAI Spar Primary 5 a-side!
We are thrilled to announce that the Girls 5 a-side Team came first place in the Meath Finals of the Spar Primary 5’s on Wednesday the 11th April. The girls played exceptionally well and we could not be prouder of them. The girls won their first match 3-1, they won their second match 8-0, they drew 2-2 in their third match and won their last match 5-1. The team had to dig deep as they played their last three matches back to back. Their efforts did not go unrewarded however as they emerged victorious. The team were presented with gold medals and had photographs taken with FAI officials. These photographs will be featured in the Meath Chronicle. Coming first place in the Meath Finals means the girls team will now progress to the North Leinster Finals in two weeks’ time. St. Peter’s N.S. want to wish the girls the best of luck and to let them know how proud we are of them. St. Peter's Abú!!
FAI Spar Primary 5s
A massive well done to the Boys' teams in the FAI 5s soccer tournament. The boys put in a valiant effort and won a number of their matches but sadly they did not make it into the finals. We are so proud of all the boys. They displayed excellent sportsmanlike behaviour at all times, on and off the pitch, and as always, they represented themselves and St. Peter's N.S. to the highest standard. St. Peter's Abú!!
Big congratulations to the Girls' Team who won three of their four matches and will now progress to the Meath Finals in the Spar Primary 5s. The girls showed off their skills in a series of fast paced, exciting matches. They did St. Peter's N.S. proud with their display of teamwork and spirit. Well done girls!
