Fourth class had the great opportunity to step on board a traditional Galway Hooker in the Claddagh. The pupils also learned about boat making and even got to sample some local seafood in this very historic part of our special city. A big thank you to all involved in the Galway Docklands Festival for inviting us to this very interesting and memorable event.
Well done to everyone who took part in our Junior and Senior World Cup tournaments. Many of our students showed so much talent, skill and sportsmanship throughout, but most importantly the boys and girls had a great time playing and watching all of the matches.
In our Junior World Cup our winners were Argentina with Joey as captain, our runners up were Portugal with Gustav as captain
and in 3rd place we had England with Jake as their captain.
In our Senior World Cup our winners were France with Praise as their captain, in 2nd place we had the Netherlands with Chike as captain and in 3rd place we had Wales with Niamh as their captain.
We had the pleasure of presenting special achievement awards to some of our players during the Junior and Senior World Cup Tournaments.
Joey received the Player of the Tournament award for the Junior World Cup while Praise received the award for the Senior World Cup.
Ruairí received the Best Sportsperson Award for the Junior World Cup while Chike received the award for the Senior World Cup.
Jimmy took home an award for the highest number of goals scored in any match and our ‘Goalkeeper of the tournament’ award was given to Daniel Ehiedu.
A big thank you to Mr O’Flaherty for arranging the Junior and Senior World Cup tournaments, and thank you to the students from our senior classes who helped to referee matches.

Get on your scooter and scoot to school!
Scoot to school has always been a favourite with our Junior Infants to 2nd Classes in the past. We hope even more boys and girls throughout the school with join in on the fun this year!
Our walk to school challenge proved a great success with lots of pupils putting in great effort every day. Some of Mr O’Flaherty’s class even came to school via ‘Walking Bus’ from Leisureland!
Scoot to School Week will take place next week on Monday the 7th - Friday the 11th.
We look forward to seeing lots of children arriving in style on their scooters each day!
