Bike Day 2024

Ulick of Bike Wizards helped to teach our pupils from Junior Infants to 3rd Class cycling skills today.

The classes loved the challenges that Ulick set in each lesson. They learned about balance, braking, and turning skills 🚴‍♀️
There were a few pupils who cycled without the aid of stabilisers for the very first time which was excellent to hear and witness.
Others in the more junior classes focussed on balance bike work and teachers commented on how competence improved over the session.
We were delighted to receive funding for this bike event from Cork Sports Partnership on behalf of Cork County and City Councils. 
Thank you so much to Ulick for his fun and invaluable advice and to all parents who supported us by bringing in pupils’ bicycles.

FAI Soccer 2024

Our school soccer teams competed in the FAI Primary 5 a-side County Qualifiers recently. 

Both our girls and boys’ teams played really well in the tournament.
All teams’ efforts were rewarded with positive results in the group stages.
Unfortunately, both girls teams narrowly missed out on progression to the next stage of the competition.
However, one of the boys teams including Matthew Kelleher, Barry Connolly, Daniel Walsh, Tim Crowley, Daire O’Neill, Michael Collins, Will Coleman and Patrick O’Leary got through to the county finals in Musgrave Park.
After a series of excellent performances in the group stages, they progressed through the group stage. They eventually lost out 2-1 after extra time in the quarter-final.
This was an amazing achievement considering the schools that we were competing against all over the county. 
All involved can be very proud of their efforts and they were all superb ambassadors for our school!!

St Patricks Day 2024

St Patricks Day 2024

St Patrick’s Day parade this year was something to cherish with so many colourful and vibrant entries. 

The theme for this year’s St Patricks Day parade was “Peace”.

As part of our parade entry,  the pupils made a huge effort and dressed up as native Irish animals. Our slogan was “Animals Living in Harmony ” as gaeilge “An hainmhithe le chéile”. The pupils made colourful masks in the lead up to the parade.  As well as this, our pupils learned a dance routine to the song “I tell my Ma when I go home”. It was an amazing spectacle huge thanks must go to Miss Ambrose for her help with the routine and of course, our fantastic pupils who performed it so well on the day. 

Afterwards we were delighted to hear that our entry received 3rd prize. Well done to all pupils and staff who made this such a special day.

Our gallery displays a snapshot of pictures from our school’s display in the  St Patrick Day parade in Clonakilty.
