Cumann na mBunscol Area Finals and County Quarter Finals

We’ve had a very busy week on the sporting field. Firstly, on Wednesday, we had our Area Finals. We’re delighted to report that both our Girls and Boys team progressed after thrilling contests against St.Attracta’s Ballaghaderreen and Scoil Mhuire agus Treasa Swinford to the County Quarter Finals which were held this morning in Charlestown.

First up this morning our Girls defeated Barnacarroll NS after a great battle and team performance. They now progress to a County Semi Final on Wednesday/Thursday of next week in McHale Park (Dates to be confirmed).

Our Boys were then pitted against an excellent Ballindine NS team. Unfortunately it did not go our way but we gave our all and can be very proud of reaching this stage.

Well done our young players who as always represent their school with great pride. Best wishes and good luck to our girls in their Semi Final next week!

Good luck Ella!

Best wishes to our past pupil and Charlestown Ladies GAA star Ella Brennan who tomorrow night starts with the Mayo Ladies against Galway in the National League.

We are all so proud of Ella here in St.Attracta’s! Maith thú Ella!

Futsal in the CBD Complex

Well done to the boys and girls of 4th Class who took part in the FAI Primary Schools Futsal Competition in the Complex on Wednesday.
The boys were up first against our neighbours Cloonlyon N.S but unfortunately they missed out on a win to a very strong Cloonlyon team. The boys were not disheartened and went on to play Straide N.S and Kilmovee N.S. There was fantastic goal keeping skills displayed by Mikey, Shane, and Ryan and great goals scored by Oisín and Ryan. Great footwork and teamwork was showed by all the boys, but unfortunately it was not enough. The boys however played their very best and showed great sportsmanship. They should be very proud of their efforts.
The girls were first up against Midfield N.S. and then Straide N.S. Fantastic goals were scored by Amelia, Alisha G, Alisha W and Ruby. There was great skill and determination witnessed on both sides in both games but unfortunately for us we did not get a win to go on to the next stage.
Overall it was a wonderful day of sport. The children really enjoyed themselves, showed great sportsmanship and gave a great display of their soccer skills. Their behaviour was exemplary and they represented the school so wonderfully.

Well done to all teams who took part and best of luck to those going forward to the next round.

Mayo Cross Country Finals 2018

Our teams travelled to Ballina yesrerday morning for the Mayo Cross Country finals. Our third and fourth class girls team comprised of Siofra, Amelia, Alisha, Ruby, Kayleigh and Roisín and were in good company with Clodagh, Ava, Katelyn, Megan, Mia, Aimee and Sarah representing our Senior girls.

True to form, the children gave their all to the competition. It was evident to see the hard work, determination and commitment that had gone into their training throughout all of the races. There were many obstacles to overcome crowds, falls, hills, nerves but everyone picked themselves up and ran with great enthusiasm and heart.

All of our students were well placed in their races and must surely be very proud of their efforts.
Finally it was lovely to see so much support from parents and families at the event and we look forward to future years competitions where we have no doubt that there will be many more successes by our competitors.

Maith sibh.
