Well done to our girls who took part in a football blitz organised by John the Baptist CS today.
Fun was the priority of the blitz and our girls certainly enjoyed their day.
Pupils took part in a range of events from 80 metre races to 400 metre races, long jump and relays.
After all the events were completed, both our girls’ and boys’ teams finished very close second in both categories.
Well done to everyone that took part and a big thank you to all who supported the school on the day with transport.
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.
Massive congratulations to the Herbertstown quartet who helped South Limerick to win the Neville Cup in Rathkeale yesterday. The South defeated the East in the semi-final and then overcame the challenge of Limerick City in the final.
In an added piece of history for our school, the South’s captain was a Herbertstown NS pupil. Eithne Neville was present in Rathkeale to present the cup named in her honour to Lucy.
Well done girls on a fantastic achievement.
The boys and girls got great exercise and were able to practise some of the skills associated with the game.
Many thanks to Johnny who facilitated the school’s visit.
Hospital Handball Club have training for juvenile players on Sundays from 2:30-4:30pm and are always happy to welcome new players if anyone is interested in trying the sport out.
We had boys and girls teams representing the school at the Olympic Handball Limerick Finals in Croom on Wednesday. Well done to our boys who played in some terrific games and finished in third place.
Our girls were crowned county champions after winning all their games and they will now go forward to represent Limerick at the National Olympic Handball Finals in either April or May.
Following the very successful visit of Limerick Olympian Sarah Lavin to the school, sixth class had to complete their Dare to Believe log books. Once this was completed, their hard work led them to being awarded a Olympic Ireland Dare to Believe Flag. We look forward to raising this flag in 2023. The class also received commemorative Irish Olympic pins as a memento of their work in the programme.
Well done to all the class.
Before today, we had four previous winners of this competition so to have four more in one day is fantastic.
A great achievement by the girls and the South team who needed to win two close games to claim the title, well done!
The girls in maroon led from start to finish in what was a very impressive display against the home side Scoil Dean Cussen. Playing against a strong wind in the first half, Herbertstown scored two goals before Bruff registered their first score and held a seven point lead at the break.
Then, with the wind at their backs in the second half, the girls showed great composure in front of goal to stretch ahead and secure a memorable victory in front of a very vocal group of Herbertstown supporters.
After the game, Shane Mullane of Scoil Dean Cussen presented the cup to the Herbertstown captain.
