School Newsletter – September 2018

  • We welcomed six children into Junior Infants this year, Chloe Loughney, Tanya Hand, Ciara Roddy, Tara Rose Lynchehaun, Peter Duffy and Danny Egan. We were also delighted to welcome two pupils to Senior Infants, twins Lucy and Lily Devlin.
  • Fifth and Sixth Class boys and girls competed in the Cross-Country Competition for schools in East Mayo. Oran and Liam Frain finished eighth and ninth respectively which qualified them to compete at County Level. The Fifth and Sixth Class boys’ team was also successful, due to the individual combined placings. They were awarded bronze medals and also had the opportunity of competing at County level.
  • Fr. Sherlock conducted a prayer service to celebrate the start of the new school year, with a special emphasis on welcoming our new pupils. Parents of children in Junior Infants were invited to attend.
  • Ms Mulchrone brought First Class on a visit to Ballaghaderreen Library where the pupils had a guided tour of the childrens’ section and had the opportunity of browsing a range of fiction and non-fiction material. The Librarian read a story and children were given application forms to become members of the library. It was a most enjoyable and worthwhile experience.
  • Boys and girls participated in the Cumann na mBunscol Mini Sevens Competition in Ballaghaderreen. The boys won their three matches against Charlestown, Ballaghaderreen and Brusna/Derrinabruck and so retained their Local Area Shield. This success qualified them for the County Quarter Finals. Many  thanks to Trainer Mike Raleigh.
  • Ms Mulchrone and Mrs Deery brought Infants and First Class on a nature walk, on which the children examined trees, leaves and blackberries. They also discussed the work of the farmer in Autumn.
