We had another exciting assembly earlier this morning. We learned all about the very active week that all our students had participated in as part of the European Week of Sport. This was also coupled with Cross Country and the Mini 7’s ensuring that all our students were very active throughout the week.

All classes participated in the ‘Run Around Europe Challenge’ . Collectively we mapped our progress and we’re amazed with our results with our whole school travelling 7,400km across Europe ! Also as part of our Active Week, our students took on the teachers challenge of skipping, basketball and Tug of War. This was a very successful and enjoyable part of the week!

To conclude our assembly we finished with our students of the week. As always, it was really difficult for the teachers to make their decision with so many putting their names forward through their hard work and excellent behaviour.

This week’s students were recommended for a variety of very positive reasons. These ranged from continuously being in great form , working happily each day and having a great impact on classmates, to working very hard with their ‘Gaeilge’ and being kind to others and also to a great improvement in listening to their teacher. Others have settled into their new class with ease and continued where they left off last year while it was also lovely to hear of students who’ve settled so well into their new school. Recommendations also included students making a huge effort to improve handwriting/presentation and setting a great example to younger students by word and action.

Well done to all who were selected – we are very proud of you all.
