  1. Class of 2012 NEWSLETTER Volume 2, Issue 7 June 26th 2012 Principal: Ms C Ní Chianáin Deputy Principal: Mr H Maune Congratulations to our Sixth Class on their Graduation. As we approach the end of the school year, I would like to say a special thank you to everyone who made this year a great one for our school. In particular, I would like to thank our excellent and dedicated staff members and volunteers, supportive parents and, of course, our pupils. There was a lot of schoolwork undertaken in class, but there was also time for fun too with our school tour, sponsored walk, non-uniform day, drum workshop, Green Day, etc. Although we are sad to see our sixth class leave, we know that they are entering a new chapter in their lives and wish all the pupils well in secondary school. Many of them have written about their best memories in school for this edition of the newsletter. I am looking forward to welcoming the whole school, including our new second class on Thursday, 30th August for the new school year. In the meantime, I wish you all a happy and healthy summer break.

  2. Page 2 of 6 Graduation Memories Scoil Colm Newsletter My best memories are when I won a medal at sport day in 4th class.

I would like to thank all the staff at Scoil Colm for all their help and support over the last 5 years Thank you Mr Sheedy, Ms Ní Chianáin, Ms Coady, Mr O’Donnell and Ms Seville. By Craig McMahon. My memories When I went to room 5 and met Ms Ni Chianáin and Ms Fenlonand my Communion and I would like to thank all the staff. By Dylan Locke MY MEMORIES IN SCOIL COLM My favorite memories in Scoil Colm are when I ran in Santry. I represented the school and won a medal. I also have great memories of winning medals on sports day, going on great trips with my class, playing for the school soccer team, Séan O’Toole and I got a cup of tea fromMs. Ní Chianáin. Most importantly my Communion and Confirmation which I will never forget. I would like to thank all the teachers that gave me plaques for good behavior, and all the other great staff in Scoil Colm. I would especially like to thank Ms. Coady, Ms. Seville, Ms. O’Donovan, Ms. Devaney, Ms. Clarke, Ms. Watkins, Mr. Mooney, Ms. Meade, Ms. Armstrong, Ms. Forde, Ms. Cullen, Mr. Codd, Mr. Sheedy and Ms. Ní Chianáin. By Ciarán Purtill MY FAVOURITE MEMORIES OF SCOIL COLM My favourite memory of Scoil Colm was when I went to Santry. I was running on my school relay team. The positions were Martin first, Bernard second, me third and Ciaránfourth. We won nothing. My other favourite memory is when I went to the Let’s Go camp in U.C.D. My favourite activity of the day was the hamster ball. I like thank all the teachers and everyone who helped. By James Curry My favourite moment in Scoil Colm is the school trip to the crystal maze. We had a laugh. We were stuck in 1 of the mazes for 5minutes and it was very funny. Me, Martin and Joseph were in a tie in a race in the maze. We were tired of running around but then at the end of the race we got 3 crystals each then we went into the forest to find some crystals. It was deadly so far. The teachers brought us into a castle to look for more crystals after that went in to have our lunch. The teachers put us in groups and we didn’t know what to do so we had to throw basketballs in the nets and we got 2 crystals every time you hit it in the net. Nearly all of us got it in but 1 or 2 of us didn’t. We then did rock climbing. It was very funny when we were doing it. My mate Dylan kept making me laugh and we got more crystals. After all that we went back to the gate and the teachers counted the crystals on each team and our team won. We were delighted that we won. Everyone was jumping around and cheering, we were so glad that we won the maze. I would like to thank all the teachers I had in these school years, especially Ms Coady and Ms Ní Chianáin and Ms Seville for all they have done for me when I was in this school. Abig THANK YOU for all your help. By Leon Maxwell. Scoil Colm memories. My communion, my confirmation, my first confession, representing the School in sports and quiz. My funniest moment was when we made our first confession and Ms Cullen was going into the confession box and Mr Dennehy was in there and he scared her. I would like to thank Mr Sheedy, Ms Ní Chianáin all the SNAs especially Ms Seville, Ms Cullen, Ms Forde, Ms Armstrong, Ms Devaney, Ms Meade and Ms Coady. You’ve all been great. By Martin Byrne
