Soccer Ace.

Well done to Olaf in Room 11, who won these great trophies for soccer skills recently.




We are lucky to be able to use the fantastic facilities of St. Laurence O’Toole’s Athletics Club to teach the Athletics strand of P.E. Here are some pictures of Room 6 and Room 7 enjoying their lesson with their teachers today.

Spikeball Regional Finals.

Yesterday our spikeball team made the trip to Dublin to take part in the Regional Spikeball Finals. We played so well, winning 4 out of 6 of our group games. This earned us a place in the semi finals with the winners of both semi finals progressing to the All Ireland Finals. Unfortunately the semi final result didn’t go our way. Well done to all who took part in Spikeball this year, to earn a place in the Regional Semi Final was a fantastic achievement!




Spikeball Champs.

We had a great day out today with the Volleyball Association of Ireland’s Spikeball Competition. Today was the Carlow-Laois finals held in Portlaoise College. All three teams had a brilliant day and played really well! One of our teams qualified top of the boys division and went on to win their final game. These boys will now be going forward to the Spikeball Regional Finals in Dublin soon. Best of luck to our team!


Welcome Back.

Welcome back to everyone, summer is just a memory now. We are planning the raising of our second Active School Flag currently. We are Getting back into being active with great PE lessons, Active Homework in all classes, and coaches from O’Hanrahans are already in with 2nd and 3rd class to begin Gaelic football training.

Second Active School Flag.

We have had a very busy year here in Askea BNS. We have been involved in so many sports and activities. We got to our first Cuman na mBunscol final in 23 years. We entered teams into more sporting events than ever. We made a huge effort to be more active both in and out of the classroom this year. We had out biggest Active School’s Week to date. All classes really enjoyed their action packed school tours. We ended the school year with the very exciting news that we have earned our SECOND Active School Flag. We want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped us achieve this. We look forward to seeing you all at our flag raising ceremony in the new school year. Have a great summer and see you all in September for another active year.
