Spelling Bee 2018

Spelling Bee 2018

Congratulations to Conor, in Fifth Class, who represented St. Paul’s in the Spelling Bee Meath county final.
Following a school based competition between all the children in Fifth and Sixth Class, Conor was the last student standing after spelling all of his words correctly. This meant Conor would represent St. Paul’s in the county final, which was held in our school. Conor had the support of his class in the PE hall  and did extremely well, getting to the second last round. Well done Conor!

Easter Bunny Visit!

There was great excitement in school today when we had our annual visit from the Easter Bunny. He had lots of fun visiting all of the children and he even left a little treat for the children to find in an Easter Egg Hunt!

St Paul’s Leinster Glory

St Paul’s Leinster Glory

Played in the National Indoor Arena, Blanchardstown, the boys and girls U-11 teams and the boys U-13 team represented Meath in the Leinster Finals. Our U-11 girls were first into action. Playing with great determination and no little skill, they defeated Corduff NS in the semi-final 4-2. This set up a contest with Rush NS, Dublin in the final. The girls rushed into an early lead, one which held all the way to the end and were crowned Champions of Leinster with a victory of 5-2. The U-11 boys also faced Dublin opposition in the form of St. Attracta’s NS where the boys raced to a 6-0 victory. Spirits were high and with the U-11 Girls having achieved Leinster glory the boys were determined to bring home the second gold of the day. The boys were pitted against a very strong Rush NS team in the final. This was a thrilling contest where both teams faced a flurry of attacks displaying great skill and determination. Our boys responded brilliantly and claimed a well-deserved victory with a final score of 7-5. Next up was our U13 Boys with an encounter against Rush NS, Dublin in the semi-final. This game was a very close affair, with our boys matching their talented opponents. While the boys were narrowly defeated on a score line of 7-5, they can hold their heads high. The boys bounced back from their semi-final defeat to beat St Attracta’s NS in the playoff following an intense game which resulted in extra time to separate the two teams. However, our boys responded brilliantly and claimed a well-earned 3rd place in Leinster with a 6-5 victory. It was a proud moment as all the St Paul’s teams were presented with their winning shields and medals.
