On Wednesday the 6th

Loughrea Cathedral. Our parents came. The ceremony of light was its name, in
the ceremony our parents handed us a candle as a symbol for handing on
responsibility to us.

A Good Start

Lisa from the SEAI came to our school and delivered a presentation to 6th class on the benefits of sustainable energy forms. It was very interesting and we learned a lot. Some of our class then met with her to discuss some our ideas.

Over the last few weeks our class has been playing spikeball. Each Monday we would go down to Brigid’s and train with the Transition Year students and each Friday we went to the Temperence Hall. Last week we also had a practice game against St. Ita’s.

On the 30th of January the spikeball tournament was on. We got a bus to NUIG. We had five teams entered. There were teams there from Galway, Roscommon, Mayo and Westmeath. 3 of our teams won their groups and qualified for the quarter finals.

Overall we had a great day we became the first teams from the school to qualify out of our groups.

Our Christmas Play

admin : January 10, 2019 1:51 pm : Mr. MacLochlainn

On the 7th of December our class had our Christmas play. The Christmas play was called a Christmas Carol and it was written by Charles Dickens. The main character was Ignacio who played Scrooge. The play was about Scrooge disliking Christmas so much but then over time he changed his mind after being visited by some Christmas spirits. We had great fun performing it and putting it on for every class and our parents.

Over the past couple of weeks the boys have been working hard to gather as many shoeboxes, filled with some Christmas gifts, for those in need for Team Hope’s annual appeal. The boys (and their parents!) have done so well and have collected an amazing 120 boxes to be sent to those in need this Christmas. It was a brilliant effort by everyone involved and all your efforts are hugely appreciated. Well done all!

Rugby Blitz

The boys from 5th and 6th took part in a rugby blitz during the week before the midterm break. This was the culmination of several weeks of training for the lads who worked with a Connacht Rugby skills coach every week to help them with the basic skills and rules of the game. They loved the experience and had great fun at the blitz which took place in Loughrea Rugby Field. Lots of the lads are hoping now to continue on with Loughrea Rugby Club over the winter which is a great way to keep active during the next few months.
