Golf: Castle Schools Cup
Each year a team from Star of the Sea BNS competes in the Castle Schools Cup at Castle Golf Club, Rathfarnham. This year, following an open selection contest, a six-person team was named. The boys enjoyed their round of competitive golf and also the lesson that they received from the club pro. Our thanks are extended to Mr Niall Lester for managing the school golf team with such generosity. For more photos, visit the gallery section of the Star of the Sea App.
Athletics and Cross Country News
Our athletics teams have competed on a few occasions this season. Whether on the track or cross country, the boys in the Réalt na Mara singlets give their all. The boys have trained twice weekly throughout the year. Their diligent practice under the instruction of Ms McCarthy, Ms Judge, Mr Collins, Ms Kinnane and Ms Foley saw great improvements being made. Our senior track team each collected a bronze medal at the recent Cumann na mBunscoil Santry Athletics event. This was a very creditable achievement given the number of schools taking part and the standard of competition on the day. Well done to all involved in Star of the Sea athletics. New athletes from fourth, fifth and sixth classes are always welcome to join in! For more photos, see the gallery section of the Star of the Sea App.
Infant Classes Visit Clanna Gael
Our junior and senior infant pupils recently visited Clanna Gael Fontenoy GAA Club and took part in some fun activities. The boys showed great talent and very much enjoyed themselves!
The school held its annual Lá Glas on March 16th. To celebrate the feast of St Patrick and the conclusion of Seachain na Gaeilge, each class performed a song or poem during a ceolchoirm mór sa halla. D'eirigh leis an gceolchoirm. Bhain na buachaillí sult as na féilte. Bhí na hamhránaithe, damhsóirí agus cainteoirí go hiontach!
