This Wednesday, we had a hurling and camogie blitz. The boys team played St Lachteen’s, Dromagh, Rockchapel and Freemount. Although we played our best, unfortunately we lost the games. The girls team played Lyre, Knocknagree, Kilbrin and Meelin. The girls won one of their matches. Well done girls! This Thursday, we played two football matches in Canovee. The teams went on a bus and they had a great day out. Even though they got many scores and played really well together as a team, they were just beaten by Canovee.
For this year’s Green Schools theme, we are focusing on energy. We are trying very hard to save energy – we are turning off the lights when we leave the room, we shut the doors to keep in the heat, we turn off the whiteboards and the computers when they are not being used and much more! At home, you could save energy by turning off lights and all electronics. Do your best to try and save energy at home!
