Tá an Cháisc ag teacht.Is am speisíalta den bhlian í an Cháisc.
Céasadh Íosa.Aiseíríonn sé ón marbh.Téann Íosa suas ar Neamh.

We had the perfect weather conditions of our annual sponsored walk today – not too hot and not too cold! The Junior and Senior Infants headed off this morning for their walk up towards Scoil Treasa and made it back just in time for a well earned drink and their lunch. It was then the turn of the 1st and 2nd Class children. They took the scenic route around Firhouse, taking in the Weir, the Dodder and Cherryfield before heading back to school.
A big thank you to Supervalu in Firhouse for giving the children lovely fresh fruit to take on their walk. It definitely helped to keep the energy levels up! Well done to all the children, teachers and parents who took part and for everyone who generously sponsored the children.
Life in Scoil Carmel has changed a lot over the past 60 years. Just look at this photograph which shows you some changes: the blackboard on the wall, the children wearing their own clothes, the teacher and Mr. Caulfield the principal and the way the desks are arranged. Nowadays, we can take photos in colour, we use interactive whiteboards, we wear uniforms, and we have new teachers and a new principal, Miss Martin.
Today we sit in groups so we can work collaboratively with our friends. We also have lots of technology at our fingertips, so we thought it would be nice to digitally capture a day in the life of Scoil Carmel in 2014, so perhaps in 60 years time, children can look back at what school was like in our time. Thank you to the teachers for taking the photographs and to Ms. Verschoyle for making the lovely Photostory. Enjoy!
We are coming to the end of a wonderful Arts Week in Scoil Carmel. The children got to take part in hip-hop and Irish dancing workshops as well as a very loud drumming workshop! They were entertained by the Army Band and Garda Band and got to watch the very talented students from Scoil Treasa and Firhouse Community College sing and play instruments. The younger children had great fun listening to two very talented story tellers and watching a puppeteer tell the story of Sinbad The Sailor. And we can’t forget the amazing talent our own students have who entertained family and friends with their art at the art exhibition on Monday and sang and danced at the talent shows during the week. We had a great week – take a little look at some of the highlights:
