A few videos of the Garda band playing at our 10th Birthday celebration on Wednesday 13th September.
They brought a great sense of occasion to the day and the children really enjoyed it.
We also had a group of children who go to Zara’s after school Irish dance classes, give us an amazing modern Irish dance performance. Unfortunately as I was too wrapped up in the performance I didn’t get to take a photo!! Well done to the children in the various classes who worked really hard throughout the week to make the performance possible.
Welcome back everyone and what a welcome back we have had! The school is open 10 years this year and we had an amazing party to celebrate on Wednesday 13th September!Here’s just a few snaps!
Each child in the school contributed something to the time capsule, that will be opened in 50 years.
Ice cream You scream We all scream for ice cream!!:
Paul Rowe spoke and unveiled our new school plaque, symbolizing the opening of our school.
Last but not least, we were lucky enough to be joined by the Garda Band, who played an array of songs, which the children loved, with many of them getting up and taking part.
There’s lots planned for the coming year so keep up to date with news and events in the school by regularly checking the website. All the class groups have their own page, as well as their being information on after school clubs, booklists and newsletters among other things.
June is a time when we say a lot of goodbyes. For some it’s a short goodbye, we’ll see them again in September for others they are moving on to bigger and better things, but they know they’re always welcome back in Adamstown, so let’s just say see you later!!
Good bye and good luck to the 6th Class children who made their graduation on Tuesday!

In December, the school with the help of the student council raised over €1000 for Crumlins children hospital.
Throughout the week various activities were organised such as, ‘sponsored silences’.
skipathon, and Funny/Christmas jumpers. We also had teachers and children busking at the school gates each afternoon.
The parents association also organised a movie night, where children brought their pillows and duvets and wore their pajamas to school and a cake sale was organised.
Today people from Crumlin Children’s hospital came to the school to thank us for the great work we all did and tell us a little more about how the money we raised will help the children in Crumlin.
A big thank you again to all those who helped organise and support the cause.
