Talbot celebrates 40 years with the Garda Band

June 29th, 2018 by Ms Wynne

Talbot ended 2018 with some very important celebrations. We celebrated 40 years of Talbot with a fabulous musical show by the Garda band. They were terrific. Thank you to our wonderful Parent’s Association for their lovely gift to mark the occasion. We also posed in the shape of a 40 on the school field and we got an aerial shot taken, to be unveiled at a later stage.

We also took the opportunity to mark the retirement of two of our staff, Sr Catherine and Ms Considine. We thanked them for their amazing work over the years, we will miss them so much but they know they are always welcome in Talbot. The children showed their appreciation through a heartfelt speech by Jamie from 6th class. Two beautiful souvenir books from all the children were presented by Cody and Aoife.

All of our 4th, 5th and 6th classes participated in a coding session with Microsoft Ireland volunteers last Thursday. Ten sessions in total took place with amazing volunteers guiding our students. Since then, students are keen to use their computer time to continue to learn more about coding as they are finding it so interesting. A big thank you to the visiting volunteer group.

5th Class Visit to Clondalkin Library

October 27th, 2017 by Mr Byrne

On Thursday 26th October, Mr. Byrne’s 5th class visited Clondalkin Library as part of South Dublin County Council Book festival. We listened to and chatted to children’s author, Tom Palmer. Tom is from Yorkshire in England and he flew over specially to talk to schools in South Dublin libraries.

During the talk, children from our school and Clonburris asked Tom lots of good questions about his books, what it is like being an author, himself and how to go about writing a book! We found out in his spare time he spends time with his family, he enjoys reading, he watches sports (especially football) and he likes to go running on the Yorkshire Moors.

We learned that Tom writes books about topics he knows a lot about. He travels to countries and places first to research people and places in his books. To get inspiration for writing he reads lots of books and watches relevant movies. Tom writes about people he has met. His mam inspired him to read lots when he was a teenager, as he wasn’t that interested in reading books when he was young. He showed us his writing folder where he plans all his books before he writes. The publisher has already asked Tom to write six books next year!

Towards the end we played a quiz , then some games and Cody and Bradley even won some prizes! Overall, we all had an enjoyable time listening to and asking questions with Tom. Some of us want to write our own books when we are older!

Talbot Celebrates Diversity

June 22nd, 2017 by Ms Wynne

We are all different–look around, not one person in the whole world is the same as you. We are all different and we are all equal. In Talbot we celebrate that each of us is unique. And we very much want to recognise this diversity that makes our school the wonderful place that it is. 

At assembly today Mr Gilmartin’s class and Mr Stuart talked about the many languages spoken as a first language by Talbot’s children or parents. The total languages here used to be 21–now it’s a record 29!

Mr Gilmartin’s class designed and made beautiful posters of the word WELCOME written in the 29 different languages of our school community. They will go up at the school entrance–so that everyone feels welcome in our school.

The languages of our school are: Algerian, Arabic, Bengali/Bangla, Bosnian, Chinese, Creole (Mauritius Creole), Edo, English, Filipino/Tagalog, French, Gaeilge, German, Ghan, Italian, Latvian, Lingala, Lithuanian, Moldovan, Nigerian, Polish, Romanian (“Gypsy Romanian”), Romanian (“Moldovan Romanian”), Russian, Turkish, Urdu (Pakistani), Vietnamese, Xhosa, and Yoruba.
