We can’t believe that another school year has come to an end. We had a fantastic and fun-filled year.
There was great excitement in school today, on our last day, as the pupils with the highest levels of attendance for the school year received awards for their fantastic achievement. Well done to everyone!
As always, the excitement on our last day of school was tinged with sadness, as we bid farewell to our wonderful 6th class pupils.
We were really lucky this year as each class enjoyed not one, but two school tours!
On Tuesday morning, the senior room went to Pure Skill, an indoor sports arena, while the junior room went next door to Monkey Business.
In Pure Skill there were 10 activities altogether: Gaelic, soccer, golf chipping and putting, basketball, tennis, cricket, hurling, baseball and rugby. We all received a record card to keep track of our scores after every activity. The overall winners were Saibh and Darren. They each won a voucher for Pure Skill worth €15.
The junior room also had tons of fun in Monkey Business, playing on the bouncy castles and on the slides.
To top it all off, afterwards we went to Supermacs where we got some lunch and yummy ice-cream!
On Tuesday morning, the senior room traveled to Bekan, all set for a fun filled day ahead of them.
We got to try an array of sports such as: rounders, football, orienteering and skills.
There were lots of different schools there from all over Mayo.
We were delighted to hear the wonderful news that one of our 6th class pupils, Saibh, has won a prize in the annual art poster competition run by Mayo Mental Health Association. Saibh won a prize for the category ‘Best Age Theme’. Saibh will be going to collect her prize in Castlebar on Tuesday 5th of July. Congratulations and well done to Saibh!
We couldn’t believe how successful our school garden was this year! The good weather worked wonders for our vegetable patch, so much so that there was hardly any more space for our veg to grow! We couldn’t wait to get out yesterday and harvest all the delicious looking vegetables. We each had a bag full of fresh organic vegetables going home yesterday and couldn’t wait to get cooking them all up! As you can see in our pictures, we harvested cabbage, spinach, lettuce, carrots, parsnips and scallions.
On Thursday, the junior room went on their school tour to Turoe Pet Farm.
They got to pet and feed the animals, bounced around in the Inflatable City, played soccer on the astro turf pitch, built sand castles, had great fun in the play ground before visiting the Jungle!
Even the teachers got to have a go on the bouncy castles!
A brilliant day was had by all.
On Friday 3rd of June, we had a fantastic time learning how to play golf.
We learned how to hold the club, how to stand in the correct position and how to strike the ball using targets.
It was the first time many of us ever held a golf club and by the end of the lesson, some of us even managed to get a hole in one!
Watch out Rory Mc Ilroy!
