Mr. Russell’s 5th Class travelled to the De La Salle Pastoral Centre in Castletown, Co. Laois, on Tuesday, March 10th, 2020, to present their Lasallian Project “In the Words of John Baptist de La Salle” for judging!
There were De La Salle schools from all of Ireland entered in the Lasallian Competition 2020 – but St. Stephen’s was again the ONLY primary school taking part. The boys enjoyed an art activity with members of the De La Salle Pastoral Team before lunch and the awarding of the prizes. The class were delighted to finish as winners in the Junior Category and received a lovely plaque for our school! The class also received a personalised certificate each for participating and a certificate for the school, with personalised feedback. But the biggest and best moment of the day came when the boys from St. Stephen’s were announced as the overall WINNERS of the De La Salle Cup!!!!! Yes, the boys from St. Stephen’s took home the Cup after competing with secondary schools from all over Ireland!
5th Class all enjoyed a wonderful day out in Castletown, and both ourselves in St. Stephen’s and the boys thank the Brothers, the De La Salle Pastoral Team, and the MEL Committee for the warm welcome and hospitality that was extended to everyone on the day.
