Well done to our under 13 footballers who took part in a blitz in cashel last Friday. Unfortunately we didn’t qualify from the blitz as we were defeated by an excellent Ballylooby team and we wish them well in the next round. All our players, led by captain, Rory Heffernan, performed admirably on the day and had a terrific contest with Killenuale in the last match.
Wednesday certainly was a busy day for the school and we were thrilled to come away from Semple Stadium as Roinn D under 13 county champions. Our team showed incredible skill and determination to overcome an excellent Kilruane team and captain David Costigan capped off a remarkable year by winning cross country, football, soccer and hurling county titles with the school. Great credit is due to Morgan Lanigan for all his hard work coaching classes during the year.
5th and 6th classes had a great day in Dublin yesterday visiting Kilmainham Gaol, Millenium park, the National Aquatic Centre and McDonalds on the way home. Well done to everyone on making it a successful day.
5th and 6th class boys had a very enjoyable day out in Thurles CBS on Thursday last. They took part in an event organized by Transition Year students as part of their Future Leasers initiative. The boys engaged in activities in Science, Music, Woodwork and PE. Thanks to the principal, Kathryn O Brien and the event coordinator, Eamon Buckley, for extending the invite to our school.
30 boys from 4th, 5th and 6th classes had a great day out in Newhill on Friday last for the annual FAI soccer competition. We had 3 teams in action and they all performed brilliantly. Our A team have qualified for the next round and will be back in action in Newhill on the 8th May. Thanks to Mrs O Brien, Rena Ryan and Max Hackett for doing great work with the teams.
Boys and girls from 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th class were busy using the Pasco Voltage Sensor creating and measuring electricity. This is an initiative involving a cluster of primary schools in conjunction with the CBS Secondary School, Thurles to promote STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) subjects in primary schools.
