    Rugby comes to Feakle National School

    The senior room are taking part in tag rugby sessions for the next four weeks. Ben, a coach from Munster rugby, will visit the school on Friday mornings to go through the basics of playing tag rugby. Today the children practiced some ball throwing before playing bulldog tag. It was really enjoyable. At the end of the four sessions there will be a tag rugby tournament hosted by Scariff RFC which the class will attend.

    Coding in 2nd & 3rd

    Second and Third are enjoying coding with the assistance of Miss O’Loughlin. Already they have coded their sprite Casey to jump on his trampoline and their tropical birds to fly around the jungle.

    Handshake for Europe 2019

    The pupils of Feakle National School celebrated Europe Day with a huge handshake for Europe. Our local Councillors; Joe Cooney, Pat Hayes & Tony O’Brien joined in our celebrations and came to see the project work 3rd & 4th Class did for our Blue Star Programme this year.

    Our Blue Star Award

    We were delighted to receive a 5 year Blue Star Award for participation in the Blue Star Programme. The pupils of 3rd & 4th Class travelled to Dublin to accept the award for all our pupils, past and present, who have worked on projects about the history, geography and culture of countries in the European Union since 2012.

    The Minister for European Affairs, Helen McEntee, presented the award in Iveagh House, Dublin and we displayed our project work for Ministers and Ambassadors who were there to see our project work.

    St. Patrick’s Day Parade

    Well done to all the children who came out and marched with the school float. The theme chosen for this year’s float was the Blue Star Programme. The school has participated in this programme for the last five years and whilst doing so learn about different aspects of the European Union. 

    Each child dressed up in the colours of the country and we had two flag bearers. Hope you all had a lovely St. Patrick’s weekend. 

    Juniors, Seniors and First Class.

    Some of our activities (so far!) this year.

    World Book Day 2019

    All week our classes were involved in different activities to mark World Book Day. The pupils created their own bookmarks. Prizes were given to first, second and third place in each class. A senior and junior table quiz was held on Friday. The winning teams were delighted to receive a second book token and a homework pass. Pupils who wished to engage in a ‘book swap’ received a friend’s book. Enjoy redeeming your book tokens!
