We wish all our pupils an enjoyable Easter break. The school will reopen again on Monday, April 29th.
Thank you to Stephen Quinn, the FAI Development Officer for South Tipperary, who visited the school today and completed a soccer coaching session with the pupils in 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th class. A fantastic morning was had by all the pupils and we look forward to further visits from Stephen in the future.
Pupils in 3rd & 4th class have been working with clay during their art lessons recently. Each pupil designed and made a "monster" using a variety of techniques and equipment. The monsters were all painted and decorated after the clay had dried out. They boys and girls were all very happy with their finished products.
Well done to our Under 11 Camogie team who competed in the Cumann na mBunscol Regional Blitz today. The team defeated Ayle and Donaskeigh in their group. As a result, they will play in a County Semi Final after the Easter holidays.
