The pupils of 3rd and 4th class decided that a school walk, with seniors walking with juniors, was a good way to have the whole school active and enjoy some fresh air together. 5th and 6th class thought it would be even better if the whole school recreated the walk made 60 years ago from the old school to St. Finian’s to mark our schools’ 60th birthday this year. Off we set to the old school house where we took photos of the present day pupils. We then walked in the footsteps of pupils and teachers from 60 years ago back to St. Finian’s. Here we also took photos in front of our school just as they did 60 years ago. Enjoy our photos …..
Day 2 of Active Schools Week and all classes took part in the HULAHOOPATHON. First came the individual class competitions with the winners through to the junior and senior finals. The junior final was very exciting and everyone was amazed at the skill displayed by our younger pupils. It came down to a spectacular finish between two senior infants girls. They really set the standard for the senior final. Well done girls ! Here are some photos….
