Last Tuesday, March 15th, in every school across the country, students are celebrating Proclamation Day as part of the celebrations of the centenary of 1916. In St Peter’s, we had a very special ceremony, where every class was involved, finishing with the raising of the Irish flag that was presented late last year by the members of the Defence Forces. We also displayed artwork in the hall related to our projects on the Easter Rising. Our ceremony started with an introduction from our principal, Ms. Whyte. Next, Amber from 4th class, Finn and Chris from 5th class and Alex, Alana and Ryan...

Recently, we celebrated the 100th day of the school year in St. Peter’s and we had lots of events to mark the day! We are all 100 days smarter, but what would we look like if we were 100 YEARS smarter? We used an app to age some of our classes to find out! Click ‘read more’ to see the rest of the photos!

On Monday 30th of November SPECS, a brand new service to Bray, held their official launch. To celebrate, SPECS held an art competition in the town for schools and clubs.

Leon was invited to the launch to receive his prize which was awarded to him by Minister Simon Harris. He also got to meet the Ombudsman for Children, Dr Niall Muldoon and his picture was put on display on the day. Leon drew a picture of something he loves to do with his...

Today was a very important day for St. Peter’s. The Irish Defence Forces delivered the Irish Flag and the 1916 Rising Proclamation to our school. This was to mark the Centennium of the 1916 Rising next year! We learned how to take care of the Irish flag and we also got the opportunity to ask the Defence Force questions about the 1916 Rising. Two children from 6th class did the school very proud today! They stood up on stage and read from the Proclamation and also told a personal story about their connection to the 1916 Rising. As a school, we then came together and sang Amhrán na bhFiann. It...

Earlier today, two buses of 1st to 5th class students set off on the school tour of 2015 in Fort Lucan. Everyone had a fantastic day and we were extremely proud of the behaviour and school spirit of all the students who went along – lots of smiles in the photos below! This Vine sums up how well the day went – sleepy heads on the bus home are a good sign of a great day out! Lots of fun on the trampoline! Red slide or blue? Which did you choose? You can find photos from our school tour 2014 here and from 2013 here!

Last Friday, we had a new twist on an old tradition on St Peter’s – the Mini-World Cup! You can read all about last year’s Mini-World Cup here.

Here are a few photos and Vines from the day – and you can read more about the infant classes and their tournament here.

Over the last two weeks in Make-It Club, first and second class explored lots of different reusable materials to make junk-art robots out of. They worked in groups of five to design and make robots out of recycling from home. They used Easter egg boxes, egg cartons, milk cartons, bottle caps, scraps of string, pipe cleaners, paint strips, tinfoil and pretty much anything else that they could find in their recycling boxes. They worked so well in teams, with everybody having a part to play and even had better imaginations than their teachers when it came to using different items for different parts....
