Congratulations to the SMD Debating team from Fifth Class who won today's debate against Scoil Críost Ri. We are very proud of the boys and girls on the Debating Team and wish them every success in the next round. Let the preparations begin for Round 2. The motion of today's debate was 'Today's children will inherit a better world' and our team had to speak against the motion. Well done!
There is plenty opportunity for our pupils to engage with after school activities in SMD: Irish Dancing, Gaelic Football, Art, Traditional Irish Music, Instrumental Uklele lessons and Drama. You are all invited to get involved.
Pupils in SMD are so lucky to have the opportunity to explore music making with Music Generation tutors on Mondays and Tuesdays where they are exploring musical composition and playing guitar currently. Enjoy!
We are using an exciting new programme called 'My Learner ID'. This is a timely programme for learners to learn ‘how to learn’, to become and be learners. ‘My Learner ID’ gives every young learner a 'voice' and helps children understand and explore how they learn. Importantly it also allows others understand the learning ways of each learner. Couched within Personal Construct Psychology, ‘My Learner ID’ promotes authentic assessment, assessment for learning and for life, learner well-being, learner voice, learner ownership and learner responsibility.
