Seachtain a Seacht – Maths Week
Maths Week was a great success in our school, the highlight being our strong performance in Mangahigh. By the end of school on Friday, we are in 16th position in the Maths Week Ireland Games Challenge. We hope to finish with more than 2000 points when the competition closes at midnight on Sunday night. This would be a fantastic achievement for our school and we are delighted with our performance no matter what our final position. We also won our first ever Fai-To challenge, beating St Jospeh’s NS, Kilmuckridge, Co Wexford by 5 rounds to 0 which is a very emphatic victory. Of course there are also in-school competitions taking place, which won’t come to a conclusion until next Friday.
We were knocked out of the U’13 football championship last Friday (the 12th) by Thurles Gaelscoil and two boys from the panel have written reports on the match here and here. All comments welcome!
For the last week before the mid-term, we are raising money for
Special Olympics Ireland by bringing in any money that people have at home. This includes any money from around the world even if it’s not used any more, including old Irish money!! The Special Olympics is a very worthy cause and the school will actually get to keep a percentage of whatever is collected so all donations gratefully accepted.
