Students in 3rd and 4th classes have been enjoying some very active mornings for the last few weeks with some fun activities taking place in the Halla before the school day starts. 3rd class children have been attending weekly “Be Active – Fun Fitness” sessions. With the help of some volunteer parents and teachers, the children complete circuits of fun, active stations. Morning badminton is also taking place with many children from 4th class coming to school early on Tuesday and Thursdays to enjoy a game- check it out for a fun, active start to your day! Thanks to all the parents and teachers involved.
The Active Week prize giving ceremony was held on the last day of Active Week. All teachers chose someone from their class to win a “Active Sportsperson” cup in recognition of their participation and sporting qualities during the week. The winners of the art competition were also announced with the overall prize awarded to Robyn Gillespie for her fantastic Scoil Maelruain Active Flag design. Congratulations to all the winners and a big thank you to all the teachers, parents and students for helping out during the week.
25th – 29th April was a very busy week as it was Active Week in Scoil Maelruain Senior. During the week we had lots of special visitors from various sports organisations including Basketball Ireland, Cricket Lenister and Tallaght Martial Arts. All children got the opportunity to take part in a variety of new activities and also listen to a talk on healthy eating. There were different morning activities every day before school so everyone had an active start to their day! A big thank you to all the teachers, students and parents who helped make Active Week a huge success this year!
We have been so busy this term that we almost forgot to give a little update on our recent activities.
Take a look at our photos and you will see the different activities that we have enjoyed.
In February, we celebrated Friendship Week by working in groups to design posters about being friendly. We also made an extra special effort to be kind and friendly. Children that showed great friendship skills each day won a certificate and a prize.
We also used our Art lessons to celebrate St Brigid’s Day and Valentine’s Day.

Students from all classes have come together to form our Active School committee. The members meet each week and then pass on tips and advice to their class around ways of keeping healthy & active. They are also doing a fantastic job encouraging their classmates to travel to school by foot/bike/park&stride and collecting the weekly CoW and WoW numbers. All the students are doing great work in helping Scoil Maelruain to stay active and healthy – keep up the good work!
We have been working hard in 3rd class to ensure we are going to thoroughly enjoy the Rugby World cup this year. We have learned Ireland’s Call, Amhrán na bhFiann and the Haka Gaelach. We are researching the countries that are participating in the tournament to learn more about our opposition.
Best of luck Ireland, all of Scoil Maelruain Senior are behind you!

We had fantastic fun on our visit to Causey Farm this year. The highlights was jumping in the bog (as always!) and the beautiful little puppies.
A huge congratulations to all the award winners in the school this year. Well done on all the hard work and training that was put in throughout the year.
