Congratulations to our Under 11 team who defeated Ballina in the Roinn B Co final this afternoon. Well done to captain, Mikey Carroll, and his teammates on a terrific performance.

Yesterday Ms Cussen, together with Rebecca Danagher and Faye Twomey, travelled to Kilkenny to receive our 4th Green Flag. This Green Flag is for ‘travel’ and is just reward for the hard work of our Green School’s Committee under the guidance of Ms Cussen and Ms Spain.

On Thursday 25th May at 1.30pm our Under 11 team will play their County Final in Semple Stadium. We will take on Ballina and hope to make up for the disappointment of losing last year’s final. We will be taking a supporter’s bus and all extra support would be appreciated for what should be a great occasion.

On 17th May our 5th and 6th classes spent a very enjoyable morning in Thurles CBS secondary school. With the help of Miss Ryan a group of our students made an excellent powerpoint presentation on the importance of ‘Internet Safety’ and the damaging effects of ‘Cyber Bullying’. For this we received a complimentary Ipad and we also got to experience the benefit of technology in secondary schools. The highlight of the day was the construction of a rocket and it’s subsequent launch in the school yard.

Our ‘Artist in Residence’, Lynn Kickham, is currently working with all classes to create various mosaics. We have already created chalk pastel mosaics and material mosaics on paper. Last week the children really enjoyed putting pieces of glass, tiles and stone onto stone slates. Lynn hopes to work with all the classes to create a mosaic on the school wall in the coming weeks.


On Friday 12th May our boys soccer team travelled to Cork to play in the Munster FAI 5 a side competition. After progressing through two days of action in Newhill, where the boys won every game to claim the County title, this was a much more daunting proposition. We got off to an excellent start and defeated the Waterford champions 4 -1. However a poor performance and defeat to the Limerick team left us sweating on the result of the final group game. Luckily, the result favoured us and we turned our attention to the Cork champions in the semi final. Here we played our best football so far but despite leading 3 – 1, we could not hold out and lost out to a last minute goal. The Cork team duly won the final and can now look forward to a trip to the Aviva in June. Well done to the fantastic players and to all who made the journey to Cork to support the team.

Congratulations to Stephen Walsh who represented our school in The Primary Game match at half time yesterday during the Tipperary v Cork Munster Championship. Stephen has represented the school with distinction across all sports and it is a great honour to be selected in the top 11 Primary School hurlers in Tipperary.

Well done also to Aoibh Carroll, Amy Callanan and Kevin O Halloran who were selected to go forward to Primary Game trials.

During the week of the 9th February, we participated in Active Schools Week. The children got great enjoyment and benefit from their daily exercises, dance videos and schoolyard challenges which were set by Ms. Walsh.
