Rugby Blitz

admin : November 5, 2018 7:41 am : Active Schools Flag, Blog, Health Promoting School, Mr. MacLochlainn, Ms. Mahoney, News

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.

Cycling Course

admin : November 5, 2018 7:26 am : Active Schools Flag, Blog, Health Promoting School, Mr. MacLochlainn, News

Our 6th class boys have just finished this year’s Cycle Right cycling course and all passed with flying colours. Leroy and Richard were back again this year to out the lads through their paces. This year they even taught three of our boys how to cycle for the first time. The lads all really enjoyed the course and can’t wait to put their new road safety tips into action.

Football Mini Sevens

admin : October 26, 2018 1:12 pm : Blog, Health Promoting School, Mr. MacLochlainn, Mr. Monahan, Mr. Mulhall, Ms. Mahoney, News

This year the football mini sevens was held in Leitrim. First we played Kiltartan and we won. After that we played Woodford and we won so we were waiting to find out who to play in the final. There was a three way tie in the other groups and so we had to wait until they played their playoff. Kinvara eventually won through and it was the we played in the final. After a tough game, we won and went through to play in the County Finals in Annaghdown.

In Annaghdown we played Mervue, Miltown and Kileeneen. We played three tough and lose games but unfortunately drew won and narrowly lost the other two. We had a great couple of days with lots of good football though.

Hurling Mini Sevens

admin : October 26, 2018 1:02 pm : Blog, Health Promoting School, Mr. MacLochlainn, Mr. Monahan, Mr. Mulhall, Ms. Mahoney, News

The hurling mini 7’s is a tournament we play every year for some of our younger players. This year it was held in Kilconieron. First we played Mullagh and drew. After that we played Leitrim and won. Then we were supposed to play another team but they didn’t show up. Mullagh and Leitrim played and Mullagh won so we were tied on points with Mullagh. We played to see who would go through and we drew it and went to extra time and we won. We went on to play Carrabane and whoever won would go through to Louhgeorge to play the finals. Unfortunately we were beaten but we had a great day.

New G.P. Hall

admin : August 18, 2018 8:43 pm : Mr. MacLochlainn, Mr. Monahan, Mr. Mulhall, Ms. Fox, Ms. Mahoney, Ms. McCarthy, Ms. McTigue, Ms. Murray, News

This year the school has begun work on a new general purpose room for the school. We have not received any funds from the Department of Education and Skills and so the project will be entirely self funded. This, needless to say, will be a huge undertaking, but is necessary as the school is in desperate need of a suitable hall for school activities and classes. This will require a huge fundraising effort and so we hope the whole school community can get involved over the coming months. Our fundraising begins with our Golf Classic event, hosted by Loughrea Golf Club from the 12th to the 15th of September. All are welcome to take part and all support greatly appreciated.
The 3D images below are renderings of what our finished hall will look like from the outside. It will certainly be a huge addition to the school!

The Easter Egg Hunt !

admin : April 13, 2018 1:49 pm : News

On Friday the week before Easter our school had an Easter egg hunt! Eggs were hidden all over the field. 6th class had to go last as it would be unfair that the older classes would get most of the eggs and the younger classes would get a smaller amount of eggs. When the hunt began it was difficult for the older classes to find eggs but overall most of the eggs were evenly divided among all the classes. When the hunt was in full swing the Easter Bunny came! Soon the Easter egg hunt was over and we went back up to our classes. The eggs collected were divided among the students and then we went home. Overall we had a great time!

Seachtain na Gaeilge

admin : March 16, 2018 2:22 pm : Mr. MacLochlainn, Mr. Monahan, Mr. Mulhall, Ms. Fox, Ms. Mahoney, Ms. McCarthy, Ms. McTigue, Ms. Murray, News

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.
