5-a-side Soccer Champions

 

Our sixth class boys became Westmeath 'Large Schools' 5-a-side soccer champions yesterday, having come through two very tough days of matches. Along the way, they played Educate Together N.S., Gainstown N.S., Presentation N.S., St. Mary's N.S.  from Athlone, and finally, it all came down to the last game against St. Etchen's N.S. in a winner takes all scenario. Our boys went two nil up before St. Etchen's pulled two back to level the game. After half time, St. Colman's took control and slotted two more past the St. Etchen's defence to run out 4-2 winners on the day. This is a huge achievement and we are very proud of our players for the way they represented the school. Next stop is the North Leinster Finals in Navan at the end of April. Fingers crossed for another victory!

Ligaemat

 

As part of their studies on Africa, the students in Mr Beehan's Sixth Class were treated to a Sudanese cooked dessert from their classmate Noon Abeltaiff yesterday. She kindly prepared a dish called Ligaemat, which is a deep fried dessert commonly enjoyed in Sudan. A huge thank you to Noon for all her hard work. Her Ligaemat went down very well indeed.

All Ireland Boxing Winners


Two of our young boxers, who are no strangers to winning competitions, have done it again! David Geoghegan from Mrs Connaughton's Sixth Class and Tadhg Sheridan from Mr Beehan's Sixth class are both members of the Olympic Boxing Club. On Saturday last, they took part in the Irish Athletic Boxing Association All Ireland Championships. After what I'm sure was a number of gruelling bouts, David and Tadhg emerged as overall winners in their respective categories. Congratulations to you both. You have done your club and school proud.

Siopa Milseáin

 

The students in our sixth classes enjoyed Seachtain na Gaeilge so much that they decided to continue it through to this week. Today, they held a Siopa Milseáin in their classes for everyone in the school. They had a wonderful selection of items such as bonnóga, criospaí, líreacháin, sú oráiste, milseáin and even freshly cooked pancóga! They had one simple request, that all students and staff who visited their Siopa Milseáin speak as Gaeilge as much as possible. Comhgairdeas do gach duine!

Engineers Visit


The students from sixth class had the pleasure of welcoming Cathal Kilbane of ORS Engineering into their class today. They learned a lot about the work that engineers do before trying to build their own version of the Eiffel Tower from straws. As you can see from the photos below, we have some budding engineers in our school. Thank you to Cathal for taking the time to come and see us.
