Many thanks to Nenagh Olympic Athletics Club for organising an excellent indoor competition on Wednesday 23rd October. In total we had 25 athletes participating across a range of events including Sprint, 300m, 600m relay, long jump and shot putt. We had top class individual performances from Anna Ryan, Dillon Ryan, Cillian McDonagh, Shane Burke, and Jack Ryan who all won medals. We also had team medals in 3 different categories in the relay events. Well done to all who participated.

Congratulations to Moycarkey Borris Gaa Club on winning the Junior A County Final in hurling recently. We were delighted to have club officers, selectors and players bring the cup into the school on Monday morning after the match. The children were also proud to welcome back past pupils and familiar faces for a celebratory occasion. among those present on the day were Liam Hackett, Chairman, John Ryan, Selector, Phil Kelly, Captain, and Niall Heffernan, past pupil.

On Friday 15th November 5th and 6th class were invited to the Source Library for a science demonstration based on physics and chemistry. This was a very worthwhile experience and the children really enjoyed James Soper’s experiments. We thank Anne Marie Brophy of Thurles Library for extending the invitation to us.

Huge thanks to everyone who contributed to our annual Christmas Shoebox Appeal. This year we collected 44 boxes. Well Done!!
