West Cork Rapid Response Critical Care Jeep Visit 2024 🚨

On Monday 20th May, we were very lucky to have the West Cork Rapid Response Critical Care jeep visit us in school. 🚑 This is a fantastic resource in our community and it is completely voluntary. How lucky are we to have this resource on our doorstep if we need it?

All children were invited to explore the jeep and see each of the different compartments that the jeep has. It was smiles all around! 😊

Thanks to Kate, Betty and Liam for their care and attention and for giving up their morning to come in to us. We really appreciate it! The sound of the sirens impressed everyone! 🚨

Bike Day

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!!
