St. Patrick’s S.N.S. 6-6 East Lucan E.T. 4-4
A great crowd showed up to cheer us on for our first home game of the season. Ajii quickly opened the scoring with a well taken goal into the top corner of the net. However, East Lucan was an excellent side throughout and deservedly took the lead with some very accurate shooting.
Our boys stood up to the challenge and Jake McCormack kicked an amazing point from way out the field. Cian Everard, our goalkeeper, again made some crucial finger tipping saves to deny Lucan on several occasions. More goals were to come with Jake McCormack, Brady O’Brien and Aaron Creighton scoring once each. Khaleed finished the match as our top scorer with two goals and a point. In the closing minutes
of the game, Ben and Aaron Creighton added a point while Ajii kicked a
two fine efforts to keep our winning streak going!

St. Patrick’s S.N.S. 7-3 Adamstown E.T. 2-1
After an excellent pre- season of hard training, St. Patrick’s Junior team came into this match raring to go. Motivation was high and the pitch was in perfect condition.
Ajii quickly opened the scoring with a well taken goal into the bottom corner of the net. Khaled added the second goal of the game, winning the ball out in front of the full back and slotting it into the net.
The goals didn’t stop there. Khaled coolly blasted the ball to the roof of the net. Cian, our goalkeeper, made some crucial finger tipping saves to deny Adamstown on several occasions. Special mention must be made to Diarmuid O’Brien. His bravery and determination to defend was a leading example for others. More goals were to come. Khaled scoring his third with Ajii also adding his second of the day. Again, goals were the theme of the day and Brady got himself on the scoresheet with two fine efforts.
Well done to everyone involved! St. Patrick’s Abú!

Congratulations to Ms. Mongan's EAL students on the work they carried out recently on Climate Change.

Recently the students in Ms. Mongan's language classes have been learning all about the causes and effects of Climate Change. They learned how our use of electricity and cars have been having a huge impact on the environment and about ways in which we can help. They had an idea of making a video to share what they learned and to create awareness about these issues so that more and more people can work together for a better, fairer world.
The children's in Ms. Mongan's EAL room have been learning all about environmental issues such as where electricity comes from, fossil fuels, carbon emissions, climate change and climate justice, renewable forms of energy and sustainability. They would like to share their learning with the rest of the school. They have been working really hard to create giant displays and posters which will be put up in the assembly hall shortly. Check back soon to see their progress!
Here are photos of the 6th Class students who were recently confirmed in St. Patrick's Church nearby. The children, teachers and the School Choir had been preparing for this special day for many weeks and months with the help also of Fr. Liam. All the hard work, preparations and rehearsals paid and the ceremony was a very memorable occasion for all the students, teachers and priests involved.
Following the creation of a fabulous Christmas tree from re-used plastic bottles by Ms. Kelly's 3rd Class, Glanmore Foods invited all the 3rd Classes to their factory for a tour and fun activities. Glanmore Foods were very interested to hear that RTÉ had paid a visit to our school to film the children discussing how they had re-used so many bottles in the run up to Christmas. The children had a great day as they toured the factory!
The whole school was in for a collection of treats this year with humourous Christmas plays, assorted performances, songs, dances, poetry, the school choir and a special visit from Mr. and Mrs. Claus. All in all, it provided a very festive atmosphere and ensured that everyone was feeling the spirit of Christmas! Many thanks to parents, grandparents and siblings who came along to support the children in the 3rd & 4th class concert and also the 5th & 6th class concert!
