Christmas Celebration - 1 Shannon

Christmas Celebration 2014
JCSP Christmas Celebration 2014On Monday December the 8th the students of 1 Shannon took the opportunity to show off all the work that they had completed since September.

Excellent displays from CSPE, Irish, English, Maths, History and Religion were to be seen in the hall. Examples of literacy and numeracy were evident in all the presentations.

Tree decorations and candles that the class had made in Art certainly helped to add to the Christmas atmosphere as did the Christmas stockings the class made in Home Economics. Examples of the boys’ talents in woodwork were also to be seen.

Tallaght settled into the game well with points from Eoin Doyle. Jason Burke got the upper-hand at centre half back and set the foundations for a strong backline.  The first goal came 15 minutes into the game when a cross form Sean Kenna was received by Eoin Doyle and he buried the ball into the top of the goal. Synge street grew back into the game and responded with 2 fine points to put the score of 1-3 to 2 points. A point from Conor Guillfoyle settled Tallaght however a goal on 25 minutes for Synge Street really lifted the team with Synge street finishing off the half the strongest. The half time score was Tallaght 1-6 Synge street 1:4

Lá na Gaeilge 2014-15

Lá na GaeilgeCeol, craic, ceisteanna, comórtais  agus , dár  ndóigh, damhsa – bhí siad seo go léir againn cúpla seachtain ó shin i rith Lá na Gaeilge. Bhí níos mó ná lá amháin i gceist – Dé Céadaoin bhí Tráth na gCeist ag na daltaí sinsearacha – d’éirigh go h-iontach le buachaillí áirithe ( féach ar na pictiúir) – a chailíní, cad tá ar siúl ??

Bhí sé soiléir ó chomórtais na bPóstaer go bhfuil ealaínteoirí iontacha againn. Ghlac an chéad bliain páirt i gcomórtas a d’éagraigh Ms Murphy – Beach Litrithe. Comhghairdeas do na buaiteoirí.

Dé hAoine bhí céilí ar siúl sa halla ó mhaidin go tráthnóna. Bronnadh duaiseanna ar ‘Twinkle Toes’  ‘ an Cúpla is Gleoite’ agus, dár ndóigh, ar na daltaí a rinne sár iarracht leis an nGaeilge. Ag an deireadh bhí gach duine tuirseach traochta ach sona sásta.

Bhí comórtas do na múinteoirí a bhain triail as an nGaeilge-  Maith thú Ms Gash!
Ba mhaith le Roinn na Gaeilge ‘ Míle Buíochas ‘ a rá le muintir na hIdirbhliana a chabhraigh go mór linn na himeachtaí seo a chur ar siúl. Buíochas speisialta  d’Fhear an Tí den scoth – Seán Nolan !

Táimid go léir ag tnúth go mór le  Lá na Gaeilge 2015 ach, idir an dá linn, bain taitneamh as na griangrafanna!


 

Myles Berkeley Memorial Garden

 Remembering Myles Berkeley

Myles Berkeley Memorial Garden
Members of the Berkeley family attended a special event at the school on Friday 07 November when the Memorial Garden at the front of the school was formally dedicated as the Myles Berkeley Memorial Garden. Myles served on the school's Board of Management for 42 years - a lifetime of service to the education of the young people of Tallaght. The ceremony was presided over by the school chaplain, Mr Gueret, and representatives of the BOM, school staff and students were also in attendance.

The garden's sculpture acts as a collective symbol for the six year groups that Myles so selflessly served during his time on the board. The circle presents our shared sense of community that will continue enrich the lives of colleagues, students, parents and their families for many years to come. And the light at the centre symbolises our unending hope in the face of darkness.

Myles’ commitment to a high standard of education was clearly evident in the time and expertise that he so generously gave over the years. He was such an important part of our school community. He encapsulated that spirit of service that helped our school to become a community in which every student, with the support of their families, strives for excellence.  Through his association with the school, he was determined to help our school community provide each student with the academic and holistic platform to achieve their very best start in life. Remembering the invaluable contribution of Myles Berkeley to school life helps us to fully realise that we are not only a community of teaching and learning. We are also a community of care and compassion.
