5th & 6th Class have tag rugby for the next 4 weeks provided by Leinster Rugby! Here are some action shots of Ms. Dolan’s 6th Class during their first session.
Parents and staff, both past and present, came together in the Radisson Blu Stillorgan last Friday night to celebrate the careers of two amazing ladies. Mrs. Roslyn Christie and Mrs. Elizabeth Martin, who both recently retired, had served an impressive combined total of 79 years as teachers in our school (they told us this in their speech!). Presentations were made by Dudley Dolan, Chairperson of the Board of Management, and by Deirdre Culbert, Chairperson of the P.T.A. A super night of socialising, dancing and fun ensued.
On Monday, Team Hope came back to school to collect the Christmas shoe boxes which the children had been busily packing over the mid-term break. Every child carried their shoe box down to the Robert Smyth Hall and built them up against the back wall to make a very colourful mountain! Sixth Class helped carry out and load the boxes into the Team Hope van. Well done to all the children who took part! Taney children sent off an amazing 359 boxes to surprise and thrill the lucky boys and girls who receive them; what a fabulous Christmas present to get!!
Mrs. Wilson’s Senior Infants were very busy in class this week getting ready for Halloween!
Congratulations to our Senior Active School Basketball Challenge and Quiz winners! The Taney Fair record of 26 baskets was scored by our Basketball Challenge winner. 100% from our Quiz winner was also most impressive. Well done!!
The school is looking very colourful and everyone is excited about the School Fair this Saturday 20th October from 10am till 1pm! Come and see the scary monsters that Ms. Leahy’s class made…..they are on display on the corridor near the hall. We used bendy pipeclears, googly eyes and all sorts of accessories so that each monster looked completely different!
On Thursday 18th October Mrs. Carpenter and Mr. Salter, accompanied by ten pupils, represented the school at the Annual Diocesan Schools Service in Christchurch Cathedral.
3rd Class found it really hard to paint a picture using only one colour, along with black and while to create different tones and shades!
