Books and Sport

We have a kickstarter program  for the senior classes, whereby pupils are given a variety of set books to read on a termly basis. A major section of the reference module contains a large selection of sports books which are very popular. The DK Sports is particularly useful as it explains in very clear detail all the major sports.

Cumann na mBunscol Hurling Final.

We were so proud of our hurling team in the Cuman na mBunscoil Division 1 final tonight in the Carlow Centre of Excellence in Fenagh. The whole team played so well. Unfortunately the result went against us but huge progress has been made in hurling in the recent years and we hope this final will be a sign of good things to come. Well done to Ms Mullally and Mr  Percy for leading the team all the way to the final. #yeboysye

Active Schools Week 2017.

Wow! Our Active Schools Week was so busy this year. We had all pupils from the Active School committee helping out during the week as well as teachers on the committee. We want to say a huge thank you to all the local clubs and coaches who made this our biggest Active School Week yet. All boys received stickers and certificates to celebrate the week. Here is a photo of Junior Infants delighted with theirs. Everybody is already looking forward to next years ASW.
