Term Two Has Come to an End.


Written by Dawid Sek and Pawel Macionczyk,  6th class,  Room 9








The Green Schools Committee, Mrs McCabe, Ms Brophy, lots of children and parents all went to the parade and represented the school on Saint Patrick's day. Well done to everybody who took part.


Some boys that won the report writing last month were invited to the Guardian offices and were shown around. Josh Kelly from 6th class told us about it, 

       "When we arrived, Peter Gleeson was at the door to greet us. He then showed us some old newspapers. The oldest one was from 1920. He also showed us newspapers that were printed on our birthdays.We then went to a different room with two other men there. One man was a sports reporter and the other one was an editor. Peter then showed us the paper for next week. Then he gave us a notepad and pen and we left."


Two members of the winning soccer team.
The school soccer team has been playing in the 5-A-side competition and were separated into squads. They entered the Tipperary Primary School's 5-a-side competition that was held in St Kevin's in Littleton. One of the squads came in first place and now represent Tipperary in the Muster competition and the other squad are runners up.




The 4th and 5th classes were in the indoor hurling competition and won first and second place.

Adam Hogan from 6th class got sixth place in the spelling bee competition and Sean Phelan has gone onto the second round of the primary game competition.
