Congratulations to Mr Gleeson who was part of the Newmarket on Fergus Handball team crowned Div. III County Champions this evening in Clooney. Mr Gleeson's team defeated Kilkishen in the final.
The children of the senior room participated in the Junior Entrepreneur Programme from January to March. The programme required the children to come up with an idea for a product they would design and then sell. The children put forward some excellent ideas to a panel of judges who, after much deliberation decided that the children's Flower in a Teacup idea was the one which was most viable. The children worked tirelessly over the next 12 weeks to design, market and sell the 40 cups produced.
On March 23rd to children sold their cups to family and friends and managed to make a very respectable profit from their endeavours. Thank you to Mrs Warren, Mr Gleeson and Claudia Breen who were very formidable judges. Thank you also to Lorna Casey who spoke to the children about setting up your own business. Congratulations to all involved.
Well done to all the pupils who participated in the INTO mini 7's hurling tournament held at Clooney pitch today. Great effort from all players on such a cold and wet day. Their efforts were rewarded with a cup of hot chocolate, made by Mrs Warren, when they returned to school. Thanks very much to Mr Gleeson and Kira O'Flanagan for looking after the team today.
Storm Emma caused World Book day to be rescheduled to today due to the resulting school closures. The children were not put off by the delay, celebrating the day in style. Characters from books such as Mary Poppins, Harry Potter and Charlie & Chocolate Factory were represented. The children had great fun dressing up as their favourite characters.
The children from the senior room read stories to the children from the junior room and both classes enjoyed being read their class novels by their class teachers. The children of the junior room are currently enjoying Charlotte's Web while the senior room children are enjoying Kensuke's Kingdom.
