An air of excitement wafted through the corridors of Bishop Murphy Memorial School on the day of the Easter holidays. It was the day of the long awaited swimming gala. As they gathered together to go to the pool, the boys discussed what strokes they  were doing and who would be in the relay team. For some, it was the first time participating in a gala and the nerves began to kick in. For others, they knew the score and assured the newcomers that all would be ok! 

The boys were really well behaved on the day and were delighted with their certs and medals. They certainly did BMMS proud. Thanks to the parents who attended to support the swimmers and who made sure to collect the boys on time. The staff would like to extend a word of thanks to the swimming club and all who organised the event. It was a very well run gala. A special word of thanks must go to Susan Slattery(parent), Helen Forrester(SNA) and Claire Dillon( teacher) who looked after the boys. We look forward to our next chance to participate in a swimming gala!

It’s been a busy time scientifically for our second class in recent weeks. With these sudden changes in temperature we are experiencing, we in Rang 2, decided to investigate heat, temperatures and insulation. Many predictions were proven correct (and incorrect!) but great fun finding out was ultimately the end result.

We also attempted some engineering using resources readily available in any kitchen (pasta and marshmallows) and I’m sure you’ll agree the ensuing constructions were amazing!

Our “Shocking Science” workshop provided opportunities for the boys to learn more about electricity. They studied static electricity, learned about electrons in current electricity, culminating in each pair of students building their own circuits. Browse through our photos below to see what great work the boys have been undertaking.

Bhí Seachtain na Gaeilge ar scoil an mhí seo chaite agus bhí craic ar dóigh againn. I rith na seachtaine bhíomar go léir ag déanamh sár-iarracht Gaeilge a labhairt  chomh minic agus is féidir. Ghlacamar páirt i gceolchoirm nuair a tháinig  an scoil go léir le chéile chun amhráin a chanadh, scéalta a léamh, dánta a rá agus feadóga stáin a sheinm. Bhaineamar taitneamh as comórtais ealaíne le téama Naomh Pádraig agus rinneamar tóraíocht taisce i ngrúpaí. D’imríomar cluichí Gaeilge trí mheán na Gaeilge sa chlós freisin. Ar an Aoine bhí Lá Glas againn. Ba mhór an sport é!

Last month our school had great fun celebrating Seachtain na Gaeilge. This included many activities through Irish, such as PE on the yard, bingo, a treasure hunt and a colouring competition on the theme of Saint Patrick. We also gathered together for a school concert, where we sang songs and said poems in Irish. Well done to some of the boys for playing their tin whistles and for dressing up for some drama in Irish too! Congratulations to all the winners but especially to the Irish speakers of the week- those who made an effort to speak Irish as much as they could.

Thanks to Linehan Sports for designing and for our technological partners Compu b for sponsoring the entire kit! Kieran O’Brien and Dave Fagan of Compu b visited the school to see the impressive new design. Let us hope that our pupils will enjoy many years of sporting participation and success in the years that lie ahead.

Bishop Murphy Boys Yearn to see the New Robot Barista in Tokyo

A group of boys from Bishop Murphy Memorial School heard about the new Robot Barista in Tokyo. Henna Cafe is where he operates. The boys really want to travel to Japan to see him in action. The robot named Sawyer has a screen face and two cartoon eyes. He has only one arm. Sam would love to hear him ask the question” Would you care for a delicious coffee?”. Kuba wishes to hear him say “ I can make one better than human beings around here”.
Ryan cannot believe that Sawyer can make a hot drink for up to five people at the same time. The robot can make six other hot drinks also. Ian would choose to have a green tea latte. Vasco thinks that the coffee is good value. For one cup of brewed coffee the cost is 2 euro and 33 cent. Gabriel believes that the company that came up with the idea of a robot Barista did very well. It was such a smart idea. Not only will they increase productivity but they will ensure that the customers are entertained also! Marcin would like to see a robot Barista in Fermoy. Who knows? Maybe some day!!!
