Hi everyone! You might remember that we entered the Discover Primary Science Awards and that we displayed our project here on this site.

We were absolutely delighted to receive our plaque to honour our participation in the awards. Well done to all of the classes for all the work you put in. It’s an amazing achievement and we look forward to putting our award up on the wall.

Representatives from 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th Class with the award.

Our Cup Final Match Report

By Archie & Johnny

After all the tension between Spain and Germanys match, it led to PENALTIES. Oh yes, it was time for penalties!  St. Peters Mini World Cup 2013 had gone to the wire. All the teams taking part were eager to see who would receive the gold. The tension was rising.

64 players were watching by their countries side hoping for a good win. It was 21 degrees on Friday and sweat was dripping from our wet faces. It was up to Jake to score one goal to put Spain in the lead. It all worked out, Jake shot the ball through the air and slipped past Juniors fingers and into the bottom right corner of the nets and a roaring cheer followed on after the goal.

Sixth class had a great day out recently on their trip to the Viking Splash Tour in Dublin City Centre. After meeting at the school nice and early, we caught the bus into the city and began an epic game of Eye Spy, which lasted for most of the day. We hoped to visit the National Museum before our transformation into Vikings, but as it was closed, we went to St Stephen’s Green and played a game of football in the sunshine – both students and staff were watching each other carefully, with the student-teacher soccer match in mind!

In the 2012-13 school year, St. Peter’s 2nd Class were the first group in the school (and one of the first few schools in Ireland) to engage in the Roots of Empathy programme. We recently completed all of our modules in the programme and held a celebration of the work of those involved.

Roots of Empathy involves a parent and baby from the community coming into the school to work with the children.The child should be aged between two and four months at the start of the course and the children follow his or her development over the next nine months. From this, we hope the boys learn about empathy (the ability to understand how another person feels), emotions, crying, safety and diversity. The programme also promotes an anti-bullying message.

Yesterday saw the annual Wicklow Sports Day organised by Cumann na mBunscoil in Charlesland, Greystones. Twenty-one students from St Peter’s represented their school in a variety of events, from sprints to field events, such as the ball throw and the long jump. The sun shone all day and the boys found shade at one stage of the afternoon under our gigantic school banner!

The boys all performed really well on the day and were great representatives of the school in their behaviour and their sportsmanship. Adam from 6th won first place in the ball throw with a fantastic third attempt, catching the attention of parents and teachers from other schools around us too! Adam is a talented baseball player – definitely one to watch for the future. Archie from 5th class took a silver medal in the long jump for the under 12’s. We were worried for a while that he’d land in the carpark! Oisín from 4th class won a bronze medal in the 80m sprint in a really exciting and closely fought final. Well done also to Ava and Robyn from St Philomena’s, who also won medals on the day!

Thanks to Paddy for setting up the qualifying heats in the school and for organising everything on the day itself!

Many thanks to Ms. Collins and all the parents who came to 2nd Class last week to give them a taste of what Maths For Fun involves. It was a fantastic morning and it means so much to us that our parents want to come in and help us to work with the children. Well done to all the boys for working so hard to perfect the games and also for behaving so well.

Last Friday was the annual St. Peter’s School Sports Day. Thankfully the rain held off and the day was another great success, with great support from parents during every event.

This year, the Bray Lions Club is celebrating its 25th Anniversary with the theme of ‘Past, Present and Future’. To celebrate the present, they planned the ‘Better Bray Challenge’. The Lions Club do great work in our area and we were delighted to play our part in their community project this year, as we all work to make Bray a better place to live, work and play.

Our goal in St. Peter’s was to keep the area outside of our school grounds cleaner. We planned to do this by making the whole school aware of our goals and also by having classes pick up litter each week outside of the school grounds.

On Friday we held a Community Cake and Book Sale which was a huge success! Our Parents’ association organised the whole event and did a great job.

We were snowed under with the amount of books that were donated by parents and pupils during the week, which along with the cakes brought in, made the day an event that everybody enjoyed. It was great to see people from the community come in to our school, enjoy a cup of tea and then walk away with a handful of cakes and a box load of books!

After the success of the day, this is something we hope to repeat again in the future. A big thank you to everyone who helped organise, donate, and support the day.
