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.
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
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.
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
