The pupils of 4th,5th and 6th class were fortunate this year to receive a 7-week block of coaching in basketball facilitated by two teachers from Our Lady's Secondary School,Castleblayney.The children thoroughly enjoyed it and made wonderful progress over this period of time .They were coached by Miss Brady and Miss Mc Quillan who shared their skills,love of the sport and professionalism so effectively.
At the end of the 7-week block the children were presented with Ceritficates for Basketball.
Many thanks to Our Lady's Secondary School,their principal Mr. Eddie Kelly and these two staff members for providing us with this wonderful opportunity.
Hallowe'en Bake Sale and Fancy Dress
There was great excitement around the school on Thursday 25th October as the children all arrived dressed up in their Hallowe'en costumes.
Indeed some looked so scary that even the teachers didn't know who they were!
Meanwhile back in the school hall ,some staff members along with parent volunteers were busy completing the last minute preparations for the Bric-A Brac and Bake Sale .
It wasn't long before various parents,grandparents and members of the wider community arrived to sample some of the baked treats which were donated to the school by the parents.
Likewise the Bric-A brac stalls were ladened with toys,books,jewellery,handbags and household items.
The pupils of 5th and 6th class exercised their sales and bargaining skills .
For some this could be the start of a very successful business career in the future!
Many thanks to all who donated Bric-A Brac items ,cakes,buns ,tarts,bread and other mouth-watering treats.
Also we extend our gratitide to all those who attended on the day to make it such a success.
All monies raised will go towards helping to pay for the music tuition which is subsidised by the school.
