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

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.

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

admin : March 16, 2018 1:57 pm : Active Schools Flag, Health Promoting School, Mr. MacLochlainn, Ms. Mahoney, Ms. Murray, News

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!
