The Senior Room attended a soccer tournament recently in Lisnamult. Both the girls and boys team performed very well, winning a number of games. Well done to all the children for participating and thanks to Mr Connerton and Mr O'Gorman, who have been busy coaching both teams.
We were delighted to meet so many wonderful and interesting characters at school today! Well done to all the children who dressed up as a character from their favourite book to celebrate world book day. A huge effort was made to celebrate reading and creativity by the children - well done all!
Children in the Infant Room enjoyed a trip to Knock Airport recently as part of their Aistear theme 'The Airport'. Airport staff took excellent care of the group and ensured a very memorable day was had by all.
Our pupils had great success at the Roscommon Drama Festival Essay Competition. Sixth class pupil, Sinead won the overall Sixth class award for Sixth Class for her entry. Fifth class pupil, Oisin McDermott won the overall prize from entries from Cloontuskert NS. Well done to our prize winning writers, Sinead and Oisin - we are very proud of you! The children were presented with their awards at a ceremony in Roscommon County Council offices this week.
This month's Aistear theme is 'The Airport'. The children in the Junior Room are learning all about the airport and are busy booking their holidays for 2018! Their passports are up to date, their bags are packed and they are ready for departure. Bon Voyage!
Third class pupil James, fifth class pupils, Jake, Timmy, Jack N and Dylan from sixth class have been busy organising a school art competition. Every Monday the team give out a picture to colour to each pupil who wants to enter. There is a cost of 20 cent to enter and the pupils work on the poster at home. There is a prize each week for the winning entry which is picked by all the pupils and teachers in the school. The pictures are displayed anonymously! The winner receives a prize. The winner of the first competition is Niamh from second class who won a €50 voucher from George Bannon's Sports Shop in Roscommon. Well done Niamh! All the money collected from the competition will go towards the school tour for all pupils. A great initiative run by the pupils!
