On the 8th of March all the classes took part in Ceolchoirm Seachtain na Gaeilge. Seachtain na Gaeilge (Irish Week) is celebrated over 2 weeks in the run up to St. Patrick’s Day each year. During that fortnight we make an extra effort to speak Irish during our school day and celebrate all things Irish at our annual concert. Each class performed songs, tunes on the tin whistles and poems ‘as Gaeilge’. Some of 5th and 6th class boys volunteered to take part in a play organised by Ms. Lawless and Ms. Broderick called The Wizard Of Oz. All the performances were very good and well performed. At the end we sang the Ireland national anthem, Amhrán na bhFiann. It was a lovely day.

On the 15th of March 5th and 6th class went to the rugby blitz. We were separated up into 7 teams of ten. We played against our own teams and Leitrim.  When we were togged out we were given crisps, water and apples.  Nicole from Loughrea Rugby Club was training us for the last 6 weeks getting ready for the blitz. We had lots of fun.

FAI Soccer Blitzes

The school entered the FAI 5 aside school’s soccer blitzes this year. The teams were picked from 5th and 6th classes. We started off with about 50 players and then narrowed it down to 30 and then to 24. The 24 were the school teams of A, B and C. After a week of training we went to the blitz. We went to Salthill, Devon soccer grounds and there we played our matches. Each team played four matches except the A team who played six. The C team lost all their matches the B team won one drew one and lost two and the A team won four and lost two. Our A team got to the final but unfortunately lost. We had a great day out and sang lots of songs on the way home!

We made a working compass with some class room equipment. It was interesting and not too difficult to make.

Only a handful of boys turned up for the snow day but it was the best day of the year. It was very cold but it was a lot of fun.
