The Junior Infants were working very hard today in their Literacy stations. Super work from everyone!
We are delighted to be participating in the Show Racism The Red Card intercultural and inclusivity programme, an excellent initiative created for primary schools by the FAI and The Red Card and facilitated by Stephen Quinn (FAI Football Development Officer for South Tipperary).
Best wishes to our past pupil Jack Leamy and the Tipperary Minor hurlers in their Munster Minor Hurling Championship Quarter Final fixture v Kerry on Sunday in the Gaelic Grounds at 1pm.

We were delighted to be out again today for more rugby coaching. Huge thanks to James from Kilfeacle & District RFC who provided us with another fun and interesting session. The emphasis this week was on fundamental movement skills and passing skills.
3rd & 4th Class enjoyed taking part in the "Egg Drop Challenge" today. Our pupils designed a safe home to protect the egg from breaking when dropped from a height. Thankfully, almost all of the eggs survived!
Junior and Senior Infants went on a nature hunt to find some signs of autumn today. Everyone had a great time searching for leaves and mini beasts, we even managed to find a slug!
3rd - 6th Class pupils were delighted to begin rugby coaching this morning. The pupils participated in fundamental movement skills and activities, passing drills and team games. We are very grateful to Kilfeacle & District RFC who are providing the coaching programme in the school. Many thanks to James, the club's Games Development Officer, who organised a fun and interesting session for all the pupils. We are looking forward to next week's session already!
