Halloween Fancy Dress Disco

Our Halloween Fancy Dress Show is always a very important event on our school calendar with the children working so hard to prepare their costumes for our runway!

This year we had a slightly different format with our Parent’s Association organising a Fancy Dress Disco in the CBD Complex where we invited friends and family to enjoy this special evening with us. As always we were just amazed with the creative and imaginative designs the children prepared for our show, particularly the many wonderful homemade creations. Well done to all the children for their hard work and effort. You all have wonderful trick or treating costumes!

A very special word of thanks to all our Mums/Dads/Guardians who played such a pivotal role in the background , as always we sincerely appreciate your support. Thank you also to all who attended tonight in such fantastic numbers.

Finally thank you to Joe Lowther for all his hard work with the sound system, Zoe and Leah B for their help with the music, John Gately for the great job as MC and to our fantastic Parents Association for all their support in organising this wonderful event! It really was a great night.

We hope you all have a lovely, fun filled and safe Halloween break. Bainigí an taitneamh as an sos lár théarma!

Local Mini 7’s Final’s 2017

Well done to our Girls and Boys teams who today competed in the Local Finals of the Mini 7’s in Charlestown. Both our teams gave fantastic accounts of themselves, with many of our students experiencing the thrill of wearing their school jersey for the first time.

As with our Cross Country preparation earlier this term, we were delighted with the progress of the students, each of the children played their hearts out and gave their all! Comhghairdeachas to our Girls team who progressed to the area finals which will be played after our Mid Term break against St.Attracta’s Ballaghaderreen and commiserations to our Boys who as we mentioned tried their very best and were competitive in both of their games.

A special word of thanks to all at Charlestown G.A.A. for organising and supporting today’s games, particularly given the weather conditions. Finally and indeed most importantly a huge thank you and well done to all the local participating schools who played such a part in ensuring it was a very enjoyable morning. There are so many talented footballers in this area that the children can only look forward to having great days together wearing their club colours.

Ms.Sloyan’s First Class Participate in the Ireland Eye Study

We were delighted to welcome Ms. Síofra Harrington Senior Lecturer at National Optometry Centre in Dublin to our school this morning. Síofra visited the girls and boys from Ms.Sloyan’s First Class as part of their participation in the Ireland Eye Study. This study is the first national study examining the health of children’s eyes. More than 1,500 schoolchildren across the country aged six-seven and 12-13 years are participating in this Study.

We were delighted to take part in the study and well done to all Ms. Sloyan’s students who really were on their best behaviour! Maith sibh!

Best of luck Mr.Rushe and Kilmovee Shamrocks

Best of luck to Mr.Rushe and Kilmovee Shamrocks who tonight play Moy Davitts in the County Junior B Final at the Connaught GAA Centre of Excellence in Bekan.

Mr.Rushe has given huge service and commitment to his club over many years and we hope that tonight will prove memorable for him and all his teammates. Our connections do not stop with Mr.Rushe, Ms.Anne Sweeney’s son Ciarán is playing this evening, her husband Neil is also a selector on a management team with Séan and Martin Mulvaney past pupils of our school.

It is twenty seven years (1990) since Kilmovee last appeared in a County Final, they have yet to be successful at adult level, all of us here in St. Attracta’s wish them well and hope that changes this evening!

The sporting weekend does not end tonight. Best of luck also to Ms.Yvonne Keegan who’s beloved Kiltimagh play in the County Intermediate Final on Sunday in McHale Park. Ms Keegan’s brother Tomás is an important member of the Kiltimagh squad who go into battle again against Moy Davitts at 1.30pm. Finally to Mrs Reilly and Paddy who will be supporting Tourlestrane on Sunday in the Sligo County Final.

Lots to look forward to here in St.Attracta’s over the weekend. We hope we have many happy faces here with us on Monday morning!
