The Annual Leinster Schools Championship took place on Sunday 20th May in The Watershed, Kilkenny. The boys relay team aged 9/10 took home bronze in the medley relay and silver in the freestyle relay. The team was made up of James and Oran from 3rd class with Sam and Conor from 2nd class. All the boys were very proud to be representing their school in a championship where in excess of 500 children from all over Leinster took part! Congratulations boys!
On Friday May 18th,as part of their Junior Entrepreneur Project, the pupils from 6th class went to visit Gowran Abbey Nursing Home.
Over the next few weeks, they will continue these visits and take part in a variety of activities with the residents such as planting flowers, arts and crafts, playing board games, charades and story telling to name a few, in an organised and supervised setting. Well done to our young social entrepreneurs who came up with the idea themselves and many thanks to the staff and residents of the home who took the idea on board with great enthusiasm.
The pupils from 4th, 5th and 6th classes were lucky enough to be invited recently to an Education Day in Gowran Park Racecourse sponsored by Horse Racing Ireland. The children learned all about the different aspects of the racing industry from experts in their fields. For more photographs take a look at the classes section of the website.
Congratulations to our recent competition winners. Finn from 4th class won an award in the Kilkenny Education Centre Poetry Competition and the pupils from 3rd Class participated in the Scríobh Leabhar project. They were presented with their awards at a ceremony held in the Watershed, where they were entertained by the trad band Seo Linn!
We kick-started Active Week this morning with a fun-filled "10 @ 11" led by 6th Class students. The whole school took part in the ten minutes of exercise. Each morning this week 6th class will continue taking the reins and guiding us through the morning activity.
