The Star of the Sea Carol Service was held in Star of the Sea Church on Tuesday last. It was a wonderful night. Well done to all of our pupils, every one of whom sang beautifully. For more photos of the Carol Service, please visit the gallery section of our Website and App.
Cross Country Running
The boys of Star of the Sea recently competed in the Dublin Cross Country Championships in St. Anne's Park, Raheny. This proved to be a successful outing for all teams involved.
In the 4th class race, the boys ran well with notable performances from Finn (4th), Nat (8th), Harry (10th), Jonah (12th) and Tadhg (13th).
The 5th class race saw Lucas (2nd) again come so close to victory, just missing out on a first-place finish by mere inches. Ciarán, Reuben, Eoin, and Harry all followed soon after with all boys finishing in the top 20. The rest of the team competed admirably with some running in their first-ever cross country race.
The sixth class race saw the Star team again to the fore with superb runs from Éanna (7th) Luke (9th) and Jayden from 5th class in (11th). The rest of the squad followed in soon after with all boys representing the school with pride.
It was a great day for the school and our thanks are extended to Ms. Judge, Danielle Doolin, and Orla Carmody for making the trip possible.
Training will continue during lunchtime on Wednesdays and Fridays in term two. All pupils in fourth, fifth and sixth classes are welcome to participate.
