Active School Flag/Sports Day
Work has begun on the application process for our Active Schools Flag and I would like to thank Ms. Hughes for kindly helping us with our application. To date we have organised as part of the process an Active School Committee and also Football Free Fridays which has proven very popular among all the pupils. On Wednesday we are having our ‘School Sports Day’. Medals will be presented on the day. We had a fantastic school tour in Shannon River Adventure, Rooskey. Both pupils and teachers had a fantastic day out. I would once again like to thank the Board of Management for subsidising the cost of the tour. Last Monday the boys and girls competed in the Tom Lohan Cup in Glinsk. This was a very well run event and I would like to thank Glinsk N.S. for inviting us to the tournament. The boys and girls gave a great account of themselves and were very competitive in each game. Well done everyone. The boys and girls along with Lisheen took part in their first school hurling blitz in Ballygar a few weeks ago. The pupils thoroughly enjoyed the day and for some the experience of trying a new sport for the first time.
