The Boys Soccer Blitz
On Monday the 16th of April the boys in 6th class went to the soccer blitz. We got the number 40 bus up to St Catherine’s sport hall. In our group we had Golden Bridge, Scoil Treasa, Synge Street, and Gaeilscoil Inse Chor. We lost to Scoil Treasa and Gaeilscoil. We won against Golden Bridge and drew with Synge Street. We came third in our group. We scored five goals and Ciaran Norton scored all five goals.
On Monday the 16th of April 2018 6th class did some planting. We got a package from Incredible Edibles containing planting supplies such as seeds, compost, potatoes and strawberries. We have three groups in our classroom green, red and blue. The green group planted potatoes, the red group planted some chives, carrots, turnips and spinach and the blue group planted strawberries. We really enjoyed it and it was relaxing. The potatoes have grown a lot and the sprouts, chives and spinach are growing well. Katie and Amber water the plants every day after big lunch.

On Thursday the 13th of March there was a cross country race in the Oblates. There were twenty three boys and girls from our school taking part in the cross country. The girls from 3rd and 4th ran 200m, the boys from 3rd and 4th ran 400m, the girls from 5th and 6th ran 500m and the boys from 5th and 6th ran 600m. The boys from 3 and 4th got a bronze team medal.

On Thursday the 12th, the 19th and the 26th of April the boys and girls making their confirmation in Inchicore National School and The Oblates attended classes in preparation for the sacrament. On the first day we were talking about belonging and belonging to the church. We read about a man called Zacchaeus that wanted to invite Jesus to his house. The second day we were talking about believing in God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. The third day we were talking about the fruits of the Holy Spirit, we coloured a tree, we put the fruits on the tree and we brought them home.
Writing Academy DCU
There were only six students, from three classes selected for the Writers Academy. It was for students who exceled at poetry and story-writing. It was on for six weeks every Wednesday. Our school wasn’t the only school there. We would get to DCU by bus and get back to our school by bus too. While we were there, we would meet authors and work with them. Five students were involved with poetry and one student was involved with story-writing. The Writers Academy was an educational and fun experience at the same time. We would work for about an hour, then have a snack. We would work some more, and then have lunch. The food was great.
Sixth class started rowing on the 12th of April. It was in Municipal Rowing Club. We would go every Thursday. We went in alternate groups. There were two groups. Half of the class in one and half the class in the other. We were rowing in the River Liffey. To get there we walked through the Memorial park. When we got there we had to put on life jackets. Before we got into the boat the teacher picked our partners and then we practiced in a one man boat that was tide up to the dock. There were two four man boats. The instructor got into the boat with us just in case we went too far out in the water.
