Our school teams were in action on two fronts this week.
Our girls indoor hurling team played 4 games in Martinstown on Tuesday while our boys team played in the finals of their competition on Friday.
The boys were unlucky not to come out on top in two tight games with Anglesborough NS and Knocklong NS.
Next up for the girls will be the eagerly awaited county finals of the INTO Mini Sevens where Herbertstown NS will represent the South division.
Herbertstown NS had a very successful night at the Millennium Centre in Caherconlish on Monday night, where our 4 quiz teams took part in the Credit Union Quiz.
The school entered 2 teams in the under 13 category and 2 teams in the under 11 category.
One of our teams in the u13 category were the overall winners and brought home the title. They received medals, a cash prize and a trophy for the school. (The school previously were winners at this stage in 1992 & 1995)
In the u11 category, both our teams were tied for second place.
Following a tie-break round, one team were awarded second place and picked up some prizes.
Congratulations to all who took part. Our u13 team now go forward to the next stage in March.
Congratulations to our Star Award winners for January! One pupil from each classroom was selected by their class teacher and the award winners were presented with certificates at today’s assembly. They were also given a night off homework for their efforts!
An extra award, decided on by Ms O’Dwyer and Mrs. Brosnan, is presented to pupils for a particular act of kindness or to pupils who have completed an exemplary piece of work in school. Well done to the latest recipient of this award.
Well done to our boys indoor hurling team who qualified for the final stage of the South competition next week. The team played games against Kilfinane NS, Hospital NS and Bruff NS before beating Ballylanders NS in a playoff to qualify.
Herbertstown NS will now play the other group winners, Knocklong NS and Anglesborough NS, in the final round.
