This week the students of 1st, 3rd/4th and 5th Class took part in the Connacht Finals of the Féile Scoldramaíocht competition sna Dramaí ‘ Na Trí Muca, An Píobaire Hamelin agus Draíodóir Oz í. 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 which will be in Mullingar in April.

Finally a special thank you and well done to Ms.Delaney ,Ms Henry and Ms.McDonagh who as always put so much into the children’s performances. We thank them both sincerely as always for the hard work interest and enthusiasm.

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.

Maith sibh go léir!
