3rd class up to 6th class had an internet safety talk given by Kate O'Leary. We learned all about cyber bullying and what to do in certain situations online. Kate was very impressed with what we remembered from last year and also what we did in class with our teachers on internet safety during the year. We were all presented with a completion certificate and we sincerely thank Kate for her time.
We had 4 matches in the last few weeks as part of the Hurling Sciath na Scol. We enjoyed having fun playing these matches and scoring some fantastic goals and points. The best part was when Ms Carey treated us to warm hot chocolate in the staff room and some chocolate fingers because we were freezing after getting wet at the match in Shannagarry. A big thank you to all the parents who helped bring us to and from the matches this year.
