Congratulations to our winners, Khaleed, Cian, Molly, Matthew, Thierno and Charlotte in our "No Idling Competition". We launched our campaign last week after surveying the car park at home time. Over the course of 15 minutes, 33 cars in total were idling! We hope both children and parents can help us greatly reduce this number by not letting your engine run for more than 10 seconds when not moving, at drop off and collection time.
Well done to everyone on another fantastic day at Santry. Over the two days, 17 medals were won. A fantastic achievement by all.
Winners on day two are as follows:

What a WOW day marking National Walk on Wednesday!! We had 136 children who walked to school and 14 who parked and strode. Congratulations to all-hopefully our efforts will contribute to the national goal of 20,000 children walking to school on 15th May 2019! We had such fun with our walking races and our distance competition. See results below.
What a fantastic and inspiring day for 18 young ladies from rang a sé at the Young Women in Technology Workshop. The ladies got a taste of IT and university life. They started the day with a group task, designing and building their own towers, problem solving along the way. They also had an opportunity to use Tinkercad-an online platform, which enables the user to create 3D digital designs. Finally, the day ended with the group getting to some coding to operate a robot. Thanks to Michelle Looby and Aoife Fox for hosting the day and potentially laying some roots for some of our young ladies in following a career in IT someday soon.

St Patrick’s Junior and Senior School BIG Sing
May 8th 2019 @ 12pm
St Patrick’s Church
The idea is simple, every child in St Patrick’s Early Start, Junior and Senior Schools are learning 3 songs from “The Greatest Showman”. We will all come together in St Patricks Church on May 8th at 12pm where we will be joined by a live band of students and singers from Lé Chéile Secondary School, students from Riversdale Community College and members of Blanchardstown Brass Band band. We would really love for as many parents as possible to also join us on the day to sing with your children in what will hopefully be an amazing performance for the whole school community.
How can you help?
• Listen to the ‘youtube’ links below at home and help your child to learn the words
• Sing along to the links at home with your child
• Join us on May 8th and be a part of our Big Sing community
No singing experience is needed to participate, just get listening, sing along and join your child on the day!

The children picked a mindful focus while walking and everyone who participated enjoyed a hot chocolate afterwards.
Please make an effort to travel to school in a more green way especially on Wednesdays-walk, cycle, scoot, bus, car pool or park and stride! We will all reap the benefits.
