There are many things which we have greatly missed over the past ‘Covid Year’! Hugs and high fives, whole school assemblies and activities, Grandparents Day and of course GAA. Today we were delighted to get back to playing Gaelic Football in the sunshine!
Over 50 girls from 3rd to 6th class took part in a training session, after school, on a beautiful astro turf facility. In groups, the girls were coached in the skills of the game in preparation for our upcoming School League. The School League will take place on Wednesday, 16th June where six teams will enjoy putting those skills into practice.
Cumann na mBunscol have launched a campaign to get schools playing GAA in May and we are thrilled to be part of this initiative. We look forward to enjoying some more football over the next few weeks – hopefully the sun will continue to shine for us.
This week also say Ms. Ryan and and Ms. Walsh’s class tune in to hear an inspirational talk from the amazing Rachel Blackmore. Her every word was absorbed by the pupils who could only be inspired to reach for the stars having listened to the pride of Tipperary.
Here are some photos from this week including images of Ms. Ryan’s class doing some Real-Life Maths outside, our GAA Training and Rachel Blackmore’s talk.
