Lots of different things take place at assembly. Firstly, we listen to Caitríona read out the names all of the children who have made it into the Golden Book for that week. Each month, there is a different reason for being nominated for the Golden Book. For the month of November, children are being nominated for showing caring behaviour. This may be caring for each other, caring for the environment, caring for school resources, caring for their own belongings etc., the list goes on and on!

The Brendan Martin cup was won by the Dublin Ladies football team, after they won the All-Ireland final this year. Olwyn Carey came with the cup and told us all about how she learned to play football, and how it felt to be an All-Ireland champion.
The Sam Maguire came to our school a week later. This is the cup which was won by the Dublin Mens football team, as they are also the All-Ireland champions!
