Brilliant double for Rianna!!! test

Posted by on in Uncategorized

Pride of Wexford, and Faythe past pupil, Rianna Jarrett celebrated a brilliant personal double last night when Ireland beat Ukraine in the Euro 2020 Qualifiers. In front of a packed Tallaght Stadium Rianna celebrated her first 'senior international goal' before being awarded 'Player of the Match' following an action packed performance that saw her play a huge part in all of Ireland's three goals.

There is a super picture of Rianna in the school's Breakfast Room showing her wheel away in celebration when she scored her first international goal as an Under 15 versus Italy. This picture was unveiled when Rianna returned to the school to raise one of the school's 'Active Flags' in 2012!.....

John F. will have to make more room on the wall as we watch Rianna's progress with great pride!

All in the school were thrilled to hear the news that we had two winners in the 'Viking Colouring Competition' to mark Wexford's inaugural 'Viking Fire Festival' which takes place today (Saturday 28th September 2019) on Wexford Quay.

Kyle Gordon (from Ms. Murphy's 2nd Class) won a Family Pass for 2 Adults and 3 Children to the Irish National Heritage Park at Ferrycarrig for his work while Katie Dryburgh (from Ms. Tierney's 5th Class) went one better when she won a 'Viking Tour' of the Heritage Park for the WHOLE CLASS!!!!

Both Kyle and Katie can be presented with their prizes later this evening on the Quay between 5pm and 6pm.

Well done to both and thanks to all the teachers and children who took part.

Girls' Mini Sevens 2019/20

Posted by on in The Faythe School

The first team to take the fields in GAA Competitions were the Girls' Mini 7 Gaelic Football team who took the field in Piercestown on Friday 20th September.
On a gloriously fine day the girls had mixed luck when beating Castlebridge in the first game but then being on the receiving end when defeated in their second game versus Piercestown.

The Girls played and behaved very well and most of all enjoyed themselves. While thanks are extended to both Mr. Ó Donnagáin and Ms. Forde, mentors on the day, the school's participation in these competitions wouldn't be possible without the very real support given to us by the parents / guardians who drove the team to the competition.

Faythe School Parents' Book Club

Posted by on in Newsletters

This month the Faythe School Parents' Book Club read 'Idaho', written by Emily Ruskovich.

This book won the '2019 International Dublin Literacy Award'. A brief background to the plot........ 'One August day a family drives to a mountain clearing to collect birch wood.Something unimaginably shocking happens, an act so extreme it will scatter the family in every different direction'.

There were mixed views on this book. Some people really enjoyed the plot but felt frustrated by the ending. While others didn't enjoy the book at all. It certainly generated a good discussion on the topics in the book. Overall the book scored 5 out of 10. The book chosen for next month's book club read is 'The Choice' by Edith Eger.

Class of 2019

Posted by on in The Faythe School
FaceBook  Twitter  

On Wednesday 26th June a simple ceremony was held in the school to bid 'good-bye' to our 6th Class - The St. John of God School Class of 2019. Earlier the same day at the 'End of Year School Mass' Fr. Cullen had thanked the class and wished them well on behalf of the wider Faythe School community. However the 'night ceremony' was a more intimate affair where all who had helped the children at any stage from 2011 met with the 'significant adults' in their lives for the last 'formal occasion.

The class reminisced about their most memorable moments before they sang a song. The ever supportive Parents' Association made a lovely presentation to 6th Class teacher, Mr. James Murphy, of a personalised piece of Art created by all the class while SNA for 2018-19, Joy Wall received a beautiful bouquet. (They also provided refreshments later too!!!)

Compressing eight years of school life into an eight minute film isn’t easy nor does it even begin to acknowledge or record every achievement of the Class of 2019.

Towards the end of the film there is a slide where many of those who have helped the children on their way are ‘thanked’ and any omissions are not done maliciously.

On Friday 28th June 2019 thirteen children were rewarded for not having missed a single day throughout the entire school year 2018/19.

Attendance in school is so important and that anyone can go through an entire school year without an absence is a notable achievement.

As well as receiving their Certificate of Attendance and their special Faythe School Attendance Award pen this year the thirteen were also given a copy of 'In Quest of Adventure - 25 things to do before you're 12!' 

This is the book, written by our very own Mr. Gregg and his wife, designed to get children off their screens and out and about - a great prize for the summer months!

Well Ms. Barry's Class certainly got the rub of the green 'weather wise' in comparison to Ms. Forde's Class when they too travelled to Clara Lara on their 5th Class Tour 2019.

As you'll see from the video below there were more terrific hi-jinks than threatened hypothermia and all the children had a brilliant time!

On what was possibly one of the most miserable wets days in recent memory Ms. Forde's 3rd Class and Ms. Foley's 2nd & 3rd Class headed to Clara Lara....the water based activity centre in Wicklow!!!!!

However miserable the day was the staff in Clara Lara did everything they could to make the day as enjoyable as possible for the children.

As you'll see from the video below the children had a great day and they seem have to discovered a new 'anti-freeze / cold water protector / insulator'.......Candy Floss!!!! Loads and loads of Candy Floss!!!!

For the last few weeks the pupils in Rooms 13 and 14 have been setting their own targets with regard to working and behaving well in both the class and the yard. They also targeted 'lining up' and 'walking safely through the school' as focus areas.

Not only did the children select their own targets but they helped keep each other on task. After a month of hard work they reached their goal and were given the choice of a few treats.

The clear winner was a class trip up to the playground at Maudlintown Green.

Simple, on our doorsteps and as you can see from the short video......Grrrrreat fun!!!
