Our wonderful 2nd and 4th Class students took part in the Connacht Finals of the Féile Scoldramaíocht competition earlier sna Dramaí An Gréasaí agus na Síoga agus Fear Draíochta Oz. D’eirigh go hiontach leo.

The children worked extremely hard to prepare for the big day and were a credit to their parents and teachers.
There are over 30 schools competing in the Connacht finals and the adjudicator gave special mention to the excellent behaviour and overall politeness of our students. She also gave special mention to our music and costumes and art work. A huge thank you from us all must go to Mrs McCafferty and her son Joseph for all their work as always in the background.

The standard of Gaeilge is very high and competing against Irish speaking schools is a challenge but one that we have embraced. Tomorrow is the final day of the competition. We will post the results on our school website as soon as we receive them. Fingers crossed we may get through to the All-Ireland finals!

Finally a very special thank you and well done to Mr. Rushe and Ms Henry who as always put so much into the children’s performances. We thank them both sincerely for their hard work interest and enthusiasm.
Thank you also to Esther and Ms.Sweeney for all their help in the build up and of course today.

Last but not least a special míle buíochas to our parents who travelled to Galway. We really appreciate the effort you made to be there. Go raibh míle maith agaibh.
