Last month our class walked down to the K'Nex workshop in Naas Library. When we arrived we headed upstairs. There was a man with about 8 buckets of K'Nex. We sat down at the tables. The man told us about his job as an engineer. He told us about Masdar City, an awesome-looking city in Abu Dhabi. This city is so futuristic because you travel around the city in these vehicles called POD cars. After he spoke he handed out two buckets of K'Nex to each table. We started building cars, aeroplanes, helicopters, houses-you name it really. I built the coolest car in history, wait for it....the McMobile! I built a huge seat, a steering wheel, a sturdy body and everything a K'Nex car should have. After a lot of building, of course, I had to dismantle it. It was great fun and if I had a choice I'd go again.

Some members of the successful Naas GAA Féile Football and Hurling teams, and former students of St. Corban's visited the school with their winning trophies last Friday. Well done to all involved!
Our fourth, fifth and sixth classes had their Sports Day today. The boys enjoyed activities like unihoc, basketball, relay racing, puc fada, cic fada, penalty shootout and volleyball to name but a few! The glorious weather added to everyone's enjoyment of the day. A big thank you to Mr. Rock for organising everything again for one of the highlights of the school calendar. Our first, second and third classes look forward to their Sports Day on Wednesday.
Our blog is maintained by members of staff as well as students (under staff supervision). We hope you enjoy our posts!
