This week we celebrated Friendship Week. The children participated in lessons where they discussed how to be a good friend and the importance of being kind to others. Teachers gave out kindness coupons to pupils who were spotted being kind during yard time. On Friday we concluded Friendship Week with a school assembly where the children sang two friendship songs they learned and prizes were awarded to those who won the design a friendship poster competition. Well done to all the pupils. They created some fantastic artwork with wonderful messaging on how to be a good friend.

Cumann na mBunscol camogie final
Hard luck to all the girls who played their best tonight in a tough battle against a strong Butlersbridge team in Cumann na mBunscol Division 2 camogie final at the 3G pitch Breffni. A very exciting first half with only a goal and point between the teams. However Butlersbridge dominated the 2nd half with some powerful solo runs from their no.6. who kicked and pucked several balls into the back of the net. The girls gained great experience from playing in the final and no doubt they will be back next year bigger and stronger! A big thank you to Mrs Clarke and Geraldine for training the girls.
