Green Schools Presentation

Posted by cmacgearailt0161 on May 7, 2018

On Thursday May 3rd, Ella Mangan and myself went to a Green Schools Presentation in Cork to collect our sixth Green Flag – Global Citizenship and Litter and Waste. My school and all the surrounding schools in the area went up on a bus together. At the ceremony, An Taisce presented every school with their flag. Afterwards there was a sit down lunch for everybody. The whole day was a huge success and it was so much fun!

Today we did Zumba Dancing with DJ Nat. It was great, we did a lot of exercises. She put on songs like Waka Waka, Don’t stop Believing, Nancy Mulligan, Tommy K and lots more. The teachers took part also except for Mr MacGearailt. Everyone was having fun. She had a little dog, it was cute. She had a big speaker with her to play all the songs.

Girls FAI 2018

Posted by cmacgearailt0161 on May 4, 2018

A few weeks ago, Tirna Murph, Ellen Griffin, Maire Chua O’Brien, Ella Mangan, Eabha O’Callaghan, Tessa McGuigin, Tara Ryan and Suvi O’Connor all qualified as a team to go on to the next round of the FAI soccor competition. Mr. Ryan was our coach and unfortunately due to an injury, one of our brilliant players, Ava Meikle could not attend but all the girls from 3rd to 6th came to support. We drew our first game, won our second, lost our third and fourth but still qualified to the finals. We came second in Kerry and got silver medals.
