Hurling Blitz

Well done to our boys hurling squad who took part in a recent hurling blitz in Aughrim. The lads were unbeaten on the day winning two and drawing one of their games. All played well but special mention goes to Daniel Redmond, still just in fourth class, who caught the eye on the day and to James McGing and Owen Young who did most of the scoring for the team. Many thanks on behalf of the team to Tom Darcy who managed the lads on the day.

Friendship Week

Our first Friendship Week is coming to a close. We hope that the lessons learned will continue to improve how we get on with each other in school. Our aim was to show how important friends are in our lives and how much happier we can be when we are getting along as friends. See our various classroom sections for pictures from our friendship week.

iPods in the classroom

We really enjoyed using iPods in our classroom. Our school had the iPods on loan from the Wexford Education Centre and all classes in our school got the opportunity to use them in their lessons. We really enjoyed searching through and playing various apps. We especially liked the app Chicktionary and we had lots of fun trying to find the maths table champion in our classroom when we all raced head to head against each other on the iPods.

Catholic Schools Week

On the 5th of February Lawrence and Marilyn Wilkinson came to visit sixth class as part of Catholic Schools Week. One section of Catholic Schools Week pays tribute to grandparents. It recognises the role they play in handing on the faith to their grandchildren and in supporting the community of faith at home and in the parish. They spoke to us about their Catholic traditions and their time in school. We all thoroughly enjoyed listening to their stories from the past. Many thanks to Lawrence and Marilyn Wilkinson for taking the time to share their memories with us.
