Star Pupil Awards

This year we have introduced a new initiative which we hope will promote friendship, kindness, creativity and hard work. Each month we will focus on one aspect of school and reward pupils who are making a special effort in that area. The award will focus on improvement and effort primarily. This month the focus was ‘Kindness & Manners’ and here are the class winners of our first ever Star Pupil Awards.

Our Infant Star Pupils
Our 1st & 2nd Class Star Pupils
Our 3rd & 4th Class Star Pupils
Our 5th & 6th Class Star Pupils

Next Month we will be focusing on Homework and we hope the boys and girls can make a special effort with their homework each night. Homework should never be stressful and if it is. please come and talk to us. Homework is always work the pupils will be familiar with and so should be encouraged to work independently each evening.

Well done to the brilliant pupils who won this month’s awards. The kindness on show was wonderful to see.

Cross Country 2019

51 girls from Presentation Primary took part in today’s Tipperary Cross Country Championships in Thurles Crokes. Our school is classed as a major school and so ran in race 23 and 31.

Junior Cross Country Team

Our Junior Team were first to run. Due to a delay, the girls had a long wait before their race but stayed focused on the task in hand. After a walk around the course and a warm up with Mrs. Walsh, Ms. Bourke and Avril, the girls were all set. The 800m race was ran at a frantic pace but the girls in wine were well able. Lily and Priscilla finished in the top 10 and won individual medals which is a fantastic achievement. To top it off, Presentation Primary School won Team Silver! Well done to our 3rd and 4th class girls on a great race.

5th & 6th Class Ready to go!

Shortly after that the heavens opened and there was no hiding from the rain! Our senior team, guided by their teacher Ms. Healy, took their place at the starting line knowing that conditions would be very difficult underfoot. Luckily all 26 competitors managed to round the first corner without a fall and settled in for the 1Km circuit. Again two individual medals were secured as Eimear and Izzy finished strongly inside the top 10. And, not to be outdone, the senior team also managed a team medal winning Team Bronze.

Thanks to all who helped train and prepare the girls over the past few weeks in preparation for today. All the hard work paid off and you could only be proud of each girl who took to the start line today. Well done!

Incredible Edibles

Congratulations to our current second class pupils who were awarded a Silver Certificate for their work with the Incredible Edibles Programme.

Silver Certificate Winners

The class were given the challenge of learning all about fruit and vegetables and of growing their own crop from seeds. Using our raised planting beds, the pupils grew carrots, potatoes, turnips and more. They them submitted their project work to the Incredible Edibles team at Agri Aware and were awarded a Silver Certificate. Well done to Ms. Gleeson for guiding the children through this process, to Mrs. Ryan for organising a presentation at our weekly assembly and to the pupils for their hard work and dedication to the project.
