Active Schools Week 2024.

We enjoyed two weeks of Active School Week this year. Last week we had a Soccer day in the Murroe Astro turf, we had rugby coaching with Munster Rugby Coach Nathan, we did a walkway orienteering challenge, with had GAA coaching with coach Matthew, we had a table tennis day, and we had a dance it off day.

This week we enjoyed the COREKIDS webinars every morning. On Monday we did a Motivation Workout and Mindfulness, on Tuesday we learned about France through Physical Activity, on Wednesday we had a Teachers and student Challenge, on Thursday we had an Olympic Themed Day and on Friday we did a Dance Take Over. We also had rugby coaching on Tuesday and GAA coaching on Wednesday.

We had so much fun over the past two weeks.

Special Visit from Past Pupils: All-Ireland Winners!

On Thursday 21st of March, we had a special visit from some past pupils.

St Marys Secondary School in Newport recently won the U19 Boys Masita GAA All-Ireland Post Primary Schools Niall McInerney Cup Final. Some of our past pupils were on the team. Their coaches, Mr Kelly and Mr Minogue, brought the boys and more of their teammates also from the parish, for a visit to show us the cups they had won: the Munster Cup and the All Ireland Cup.

Well done to the boys and all the team and coaches on a fantastic achievement after many hours of hard work and training.
