Sport's Day 2019

We held our annual Sport's Day in St. Felim's on Tuesday, 18th June. All the children were split up into three teams- the blue team, the red team and the green team. Well done to all the 6th class children who organised this school event. There were lots of events to take part in such as the races, dodgeball, the parachute, penalty kicks, basketball throws, obstacle courses and much more!

Exercise-a-thon

Children from Junior Infants to 2nd class raised funds for their school on Friday, 14th of June by taking part in an exercise-a-thon. The children took part in various activities such as an obstacle course, dancing, parachute games, target games and playground games. A big thank you to our parents association for organising the event and for the lovely treats on the day. Well done to all the children who raised money by asking people to sponsor them as they completed the exercise-a-thon. It was a very enjoyable day!

Award Winning School!

We have had big news over the last couple of week. Scoil Chlann Naofa has won two significant awards; A STEM plaque of excellence and an Amber Flag for Positive Mental Health. Science and Wellbeing have been at the heart of our teaching and learning all year as we applied for these awards. We are very proud of all the children for their hard work. We now have an Amber Flag flying high at the front of the building and await our plaque for mounting on the school wall. 2018-2019 has been a great year for Scoil Chlann Naofa!
