This month, we have been taking part in RTE’s Operation Transformation 2017 by getting active for 10 minutes a day. Each class has taken part in different types of exercise such as cycling, running, badminton and dancing.
At 10am on the 10th February, we will exercise for 10 minutes with our class. This will be happening in schools all around the country at the exact same time.
Have a look at our 3rd and 4th classes dancing to the Cha Cha Slide.
Today we had a very special visit from Sam Maguire brought to the school by Colm Basquel & Ciaran Farrelly
Congratulations to Zara Flood - Mr. de Paor’s 3rd class who won a prize at the recent art competition run by Tallaght Credit Union
History was made when Scoil Maelruain won the double in Croke Park on October 26th. While Scoil Maelruain has enjoyed some successes in the past in Croke Park never before have the boys and girls won on the same day. This memorable day started with the girls recording a thrilling 2 – 7 to 0 -9 victory over Mount Anville and retaining the Sciath Chomhar Linn. Every member put in a sterling performance on the day. As the girls rejoiced the boys lined out to play Scoil Mobhi. The pressure was on. At half time the boys led by one point only thanks in no small measure to a brilliant goal by Callum O’Brien who sustained an injury shortly afterwards. The second half was very tight. However the determination shown by all the Maelruain boys was incredible and they pulled away in the last few minutes to win the Corn Chumann na nGael with a final score of 1 – 10 to 9 points. There were jubilant scenes amongst all the players, teachers and supporters when the final whistle blew. There was more history in the making as the two captains Aimee Collins and Fionn Lynch are first cousins. They led the sing song back in the school. Scoil Maelruain Abu.

On Wednesday 22nd all the 5th classes went on school tour. We went to Malahide park first and played in the playground there. Afterwards we went to Croke park where we had lots of fun. We saw the dressing rooms, the pitch and the stands. We walked along the skyline tour and finally we played in the games room. It was a great day!
