Jessica Competes in the Connuaght Cross Country Finals in Kiltoom

Comghairdeachas mór to Jessica Casey of our Sixth Class who on Saturday morning competed in the Connuaght Primary Schools Cross Country Finals at St.Brigid’s GAA Club, Kiltoom Co.Roscommon.

Jessica produced a fantastic performance finishing 25th in a very competitive race and can count herself unlucky that she didn’t finish higher due to the crowded nature of the finish.

Jessica has represented our school with great distinction across a number of codes over the past number of years. As a side she is a talented soccer player also and represented her county and indeed her province- Connaught in a recent regional blitz in Dublin.

Well done to Jessica and to all our students who took part in Cross Country this school year. Each and every one of you did your very best and we’re very proud of all your efforts.

Maith sibh go léir.

Students of the Week Friday November 17th

What a busy week we’ve just had. All students prepared well for our Parent Teacher Meetings which we had on Wednesday and Thursday.

At our assembly today children were commended for their efforts in not only helping others with their work, but also with their behaviour. Being a guiding influence on others is a highly rewarding attribute, and our students are portraying this in their school life. We heard the teachers speak of children who are trying so hard with tasks that are difficult for them, but are not giving up and are achieving success in them. What a wonderful life lesson for us all.

Our children today were presented with their awards because of their hard work and dedication to doing the best that they can do at all times. It is a wonderful time to hear all the positives about our children and while only one from each class can get the award, we were reminded that there are children in our classes who could take this award home each week. Well done everyone, we are so proud of all of you. A fantastic effort, Maith Sibh!

Finally best wishes to Jessica Casey from our 6th Class who on Saturday participates and represents our school in the Connaught Girls Cross Country Finals at St.Brigid’s Kiltoom, Co.Roscommon. We are very proud of Jessica and all our students.

Have a great weekend everyone!
