St. Malachys will be closed on the 12th of December to facilitate a staff in-service day.
We had great fun this week for Science Week. We did lots of experiments and completed many fun STEM activities.
We caused a chemical reaction by pouring Mentos into a bottle of Coke, creating an explosion.
We dissolved Skittles using warm water. The warm water caused the sugar and food colouring to dissolve which created a rainbow of colours.
We also created a moving car using a motor and electricity circuits.
Our pupils enjoyed a visit from the Dublin Fire Brigade during fire safety week. The children were lucky enough to get the opportunity to learn about all the equipment inside the fire truck and even got the chance to use the water hose! Thank you to the wonderful firemen who took time to visit us. Also a big congratulations to the winners of our Fire safety poster competition!
Here are some of our 4th class pupils displaying their fantastic projects that they completed on ‘The Ancient Egyptians’. We enjoyed travelling back in history to learn about what life was like in ancient Egypt.
In 4th class, we are learning about solids, liquids and gases. We completed the ‘Fizzy Balloon’ experiment to show how mixing a solid with a liquid can create a gas.
Many thanks to the volunteers from Colgate who painted our playground games and thanks to Barnardos for organising this. Our children are already enjoying playing in these lovely bright games.
Attached is our academic calendar for the school year 2023/2024.

Some of our 5th and 6th class children representing St. Malachy’s at the Green Schools Water Event! We are working very hard towards getting our Water Flag this year. The children brainstormed some fantastic ideas for water conservation and even created a water-friendly design for our school! Keep up the good work!
We are very proud of our first Pen Licence winners here in 5th class! Congratulations to Aaliyah, Josh, Zac, Sandra, Sebastian and Rumen. Keep up the fantastic work!
