ALDI Posters completed

A sincere thanks to everyone who helped us with collecting ALDI Play Rugby stickers over the past few months. The competition ends this weekend and we have now filled the last poster we have here in the school. In all, we collected enough stickers to fill an amazing 8 posters. Each poster will give the school an extra entry into the draw for €50,000 and we will at the very least have secured new  PE equipment for the school.

County INTO Mini 7s Finals

Well done to our girls who represented South Limerick in the county finals of the INTO Mini 7s camogie.

Herbertstown picked up a win in the first game against Crecora NS. Two defeats followed to strong opposition in Ballybrown NS and Killoughteen NS. The West champions Killoughteen were overall winners on the day.

A great experience for the girls and another memorable outing for them.

The next items on the Cumann na mBunscol calendar for the school teams will be the Roinn A hurling and football blitzes in May.

6th Class Pupils Banner

The school received a request from Hospital/Herbertstown GAA club to create a banner for their dog in the Con & Annie Kirby Memorial Stakes.

6th class worked hard either side of the Easter holidays to come up with an idea for the poster and to get it completed in time for this weekend’s final where there will be a parade of banners.

The class have created an excellent banner and we wish Hospital/Herbertstown and their dog, Ryhope Beach, all the best in the final on Friday night.

FAI Primary 5s Semi-Finals

Our boys’ and girls’ teams travelled to Corbally yesterday to take part in the semi-finals of the Limerick FAI Primary 5s competition.

The boys won their first game and drew their second game. Unfortunately, they were eliminated from the competition on goal difference despite being unbeaten throughout the whole event.

The girls won both of their games which secured their place in the County Final next Wednesday.

Well done to both teams on great performances across the whole competition.
