Fifth Form 2



Thursday 30/03/17


To celebrate St. Patrick's Day all the boys in the school dressed in green today. Each class also prepared a song and poem as gaeilge. 


We are learning all about space. We went to visit Ms. Larkin and the boys in 5.2 to make rockets. The boys showed us a rocket experiment with a balloon, string and a straw. We then got a chance to make our own rockets and fly them with help from all the boys in 5.2. We had lots of fun. 


This term we have been learning about european explorers. We decided to dig a little deeper than what we learned in our books and searched the internet for more information on our chosen explorers. Our projects turned out great!


Congratulations to our Christmas Art winners; Louis (1st), Daniel (2nd) and Juan (3rd)


The boys in Fifth Form enjoyed taking part in the St.Michael's Santa Run on the last week before the holidays.  All the boys in the school were asked to wear a Santa hat and were challenged with completing four laps of our new athletics running track.  There was great excitement on the day and we are very thankful to Ms. Doyle for organsiing it.


No need for the elf on the shelf in our room, we have 26 elves on the washing line! Check out our Elf Yourself art projects!


The boys in both Fifth Forms enjoyed singing popular Christmas Carols in the annual carol service in the Merrion Centre on the last week before the holidays.  All funds raised were donated to the St. Vincent De Paul charity.  Thank you to all the parents and members of the public who supported such a worthy cause.


5.2 has been a very busy classroom recently as we get ready to take to the stage for our annual school musical. The last few days have flown by as have been rehearsing our songs and actions and getting all our props ready for the big production! Wel done and thank you to all the boys in 5.2 who shared their painting, cutting and glueing skills to create these excellent flowers and hay bales! We can't wait for the show!


We definitely have some budding scientists in 5.2! The boys showed us some excellent projects during Science Week.
