Congratulations to our boys and girls football teams who have both qualified for the Cumann Na mBunscol semi-finals. The girls put in a great performance to beat Meelickmore and the boys emerged victorious over Irishtown in a thrilling encounter that came right down to the last kick of the game ! Both teams will now play in the semi-finals on Wednesday May 23rd. Best of luck to all !!

Sincere thanks to Alma from Agrikids who visited the school on Wednesday May 16th to talk to the children about the different dangers they may face on the farm. She explained that for the 8th year running the farm was voted the most dangerous place of work in Ireland. We had some great discussions on the dangers associated with farm machinery , animals, poisons and chemicals  on the farm and the children promised to spread the farm safety rules in their homes and around the community.


Well done to Mr Ryder and the Green Team who were awarded the school's 3rd green flag at the Green Flag Awards Ceremony in Claremorris on Tuesday 15th May.  As part of their work on raising awareness of water conservation, they created a wonderful fish mural from recycled bottle tops brought in by the children.

Congratulations to all the children from 5th & 6th classes who presented their
Blue Star projects to the whole school Community on Thursday March 22nd. The projects were full of interesting facts and information on the different countries of the EU and reflected all the hard work the senior room have put into participating in the Blue Star Programme this year. Well done to all involved.

Thank you to Ashley and her “helper” Molly for coming to visit us and teaching us how to look after our teeth.  


Last week was also engineers week and the children enjoyed working as engineers to plan and complete some STEM challenges such as making bridges , building towers, designing and creating LEGO man launchers and marble mazes. Well done to all our engineers of the future !

We would like to wish our 5th and 6th class pupils the very best of luck this Saturday 3rd March as they make their Confirmation in St. Mary's Church Ballinrobe.
We hope everyone has a fantastic day.

The children have had great fun celebrating World Book Day. Some activities included drawing their favourite book character, completing their reading challenge sheets, recommending their favourite books to a friend and listening to some stories behind read aloud by the older classes. Keep up the good work bookworms !!
