The pupils from third to sixth class enjoyed a Spikeball Blitz organised by the Transition Year Students from Presentation Secondary School today. The girls were treated to a fun-for-all blitz to mark the end of six week of coaching.
Prizes were presented to overall winning tea, to the most improved player and to the most cooperative player. Well done to all involved.
Today Ms Walsh and Ms Drohan and the girls from Rang 3 and 4 put on their coats and hats and had a lovely walk to Bookworm. We were warmly welcomed by Johhny Butler. We had a lovely time choosing our books and we all came back to school happy with our purchases. Happy reading girls and remember the words of Dr Seuss
“You can find magic wherever you look. Sit back and relax. All you need is a book”
The boys and girls in Ms. Gleeson’s First Class were busy this week planting potatoes, strawberries, carrots, lettuce, turnips and spinach as part of the Incredible Edibles programme. Through this programme the pupils learn about how plants grow and what is needed to ensure our crops survive.
Today at Assembly the pupils celebrated World Book Day by sharing their favourite books with the school. Well done to the brave pupils who stood up and presented their book reviews. We look forward to visiting Bookworm next week to cash in our book vouchers!
Spikeball is a relatively new sport and today, Thursday, 7th March, two teams from Presentation Primary School travelled to the impressive University of Limerick Sports Arena for the Spikeball Regional Finals.
Spikeball is a simpler version of volleyball which allows players catch the ball as part of each play. Teams of four learn the skills of the ‘dig, set and spike’ just like volleyball.
Today our two teams represented the school with pride and enthusiasm. The Presentation Panthers were drawn in a challenging group alongside Ayle, Templemore and Ballyneale. The Presentation Pythons managed to win all three group games by defeating Kilinure, St. Enda’s and Shountrade NS. The Pythons were later beaten in the quarter final by St. Joseph’s Templemore.
The day was very enjoyable and a great experience for the girls. Well done to all!
On Wednesday the two teams put on a display for the pupils from first to sixth class. We hope that this will inspire some future stars to play what is a wonderful and inclusive game.
A wonderful night was had by all who attended Thurles Drama Group’s production of Alice’s Adventures in the New World.
Lorna Healy was superb in the lead role of Alice and the all female cast really entertained the large crowd there.
Money raised on the night through the sale of tickets and the raffle was for the benefit of our school and we are delighted to let you know that, less expenses, €2525 was raised in total.
Well done to all who helped make the night such a success and a sincere thank you to Thurles Drama group, not simply for a great night, but also for their generosity and support for Presentation Primary School.
Thurles Drama Group will present Alice’s Adventures in the New World in The Source Arts Centre on Monday 18th February. This is a modern, adult drama which promises to entertain you. The lead role of Alice is played by our very own Ms. Lorna Healy.
Traditionally, the proceeds of tickets sales on the opening night are given to a local cause. This year we are delighted to announce that Presentation Primary School will be the beneficiary of money raised on opening night.
The night will begin at 7:15pm with a Cheese & Wine reception.
The show commences at 8pm.
Tickets cost €20 and we are hoping that you can support us buying purchasing a ticket.
Tickets are on sale from the school office at 0504 22331 or from any staff member.
We would like to thank Thurles Drama Group for their support of our school and we very much look forward to a great night in The Source.
