Under 11/12 Camogie Success!

This year U11 and U12's camogie team did really well. In U11's we drew with first place. We are either second or third in the U12's league. In our last match of the season we won 3:1 to 0:0. The team which we beat on the last match was called "Penguins". We would like to thank our trainers, Nicola Breth and Aoife Breth. After the match we had a party. We had a really good time this season and we hope do as well if not better and we hope to have just as good a time next season.

Stay Safe this Summer

During this Summer there are a few things we must all remember. Firstly, be careful crossing all roads as we will all be outside playing with our friends. Be careful if you are swimming in a pool or in the sea as the water may seem much calmer than it actually is. It is very difficult to spot currents in the sea so be warned. Don't stay out in the sun for too long. Irish people are very prone to sunburn as we are quite fair skinned. It is better to be pale and interesting than to have really sore sunburn! Use your sunblock and wear a hat. Hopefully we will get a chance this summer to take these precautions if the nice weather keeps up.
Brian Tomney and Stephen Hudson.

Fifth Class in training

Because sixth class have sadly left the school, we the fifth classes have to take over their very important jobs. These are the new jobs we have to do. Mrs Ryan's class are in charge of the fire drills and yard notebooks. Ms Thakarar's class are in charge of the doors, towels and soap. Mrs Whan's class are in charge of the copy shop and cash note book. Ms Russell's class are in charge of first aid.I hope everybody does their jobs well.

On the Way To Canada!

The band are going to Canada on Thursday the 29th of June. They have been practising very hard for the competitions. They will be in the world championship to represent Ireland. There will be other bands there from all over the world there. We will be in the parade and competitions. We are flying from Dublin to Amsterdam to Minneapolis in Canada. It takes 24 hours to fly and an hour to get to where we are staying. We will be doing band jobs and hopefully we will be going to the Rocky Mountains. We will return on the 15th of July and hopefully we will win something.
