Congratulations to the hurling team from Croagh N.S. that won the 9 aside final in Mick Neville Park on Friday June 10th. The match was very exciting. The Croagh team scored the first points of the match but a strong Raheenagh team quickly replied with a series of scores. The Croagh players worked to close the gap and after some excellent points regained a lead, which they retained to the full-time whistle. Well done to the players and a sincere word of thanks to the manager for all his commitment and effort with the team. Thanks to all those who supported the team in a variety of ways.
The Food Dudes Healthy Eating Programme will take place in the school for four weeks commencing on April 26th. This programme aims to encourage children to eat more fruit and vegetables.
Every child in the whole school put their creativity and construction skills to excellent use before Easter. On March 16th they displayed the fruits of their work when they showed off their wonderful Easter bonnets. Well done everybody. Fantastic work throughout every class.
The children of Croagh N.S. set about creating a historical display of artefacts to commemorate the 1916 Rising. They compiled a magnificent variety of historical objects and it was an extremely educational exercise.
Pupils from the while school were involved in a drama which recalled various moments from Easter 1916. They invited parents to view the drama and they did an excellent job on the day.
The Irish flag was raised at Croagh N.S. on Tuesday March 15th. To mark the centenary of the 1916 Rising, a number of events were organised in the school. The staff and students wore costumes inspired by 1916. Here are some images from the day. Well done to everybody who showed great creativity with their outfit, and to all those who helped put the costumes together.
We were delighted that Emmett from ‘The Voice of Ireland’ visited the school on Wednesday. He sang for the children and answered lots of questions. Thanks to Emmett for taking time out of his busy schedule to visit us and also to Emmet’s family for bringing Emmett to meet us all. We wish him all the best with the competition on Sunday night. We will be giving Emmett our number one vote.
