Month: September 2016
St. Brigid’s Visit the School
The school was delighted to welcome members of the St. Brigid’s team who won the All Ireland Junior Sevens title in Dublin recently. Many of our pupils are playing with the local club so they were thrilled to have an opportunity to see and hold the cup. Well done to all involved.
Detectives at work in Herbertstown NS
Second class had a great afternoon being detectives around the school grounds. They discovered many rocks, stones, soil samples, flowers, bugs, leaves and even a feather!!
A month of achievements for 1st/2nd Class
A fun filled first month back with birthdays, medals and fantastic achievements in the First and Second room.
Our GAA season kicked off this week with both our boys and girls competing in the INTO Football Sevens.
On Tuesday, our boys team put up many good performances but met strong opposition in the form of Hospital NS and Bruree NS. They are now preparing for their 11 a side competition next week.
Our girls competed against Hospital NS, Bruree NS and Knocklong NS on Wednesday and, thanks to three victories, they emerged from the group as winners. They will now go forward to represent the South in the County finals.
Well done to all involved!
