The 4th, 5th and 6th classes read a novel based around 1846 – 1847 in the eyes of a 12 year old girl named Eily. The book was ‘ Under the Hawthorn Tree ‘ by Marita Conlon McKenna.
Eily and her younger siblings, Peggy and Michael, live in a small, thatched cottage until disaster strikes and blight affects their crop. Mother goes in search of their beloved father. They are forced to travel to the workhouse, but they decide to take a detour in search of their grand-aunts of whom they have only heard of in Mother’s tales.
We thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone fascinated in the Great famine.
We are now reading ‘ Kensuke’s Kingdom ‘ by Michael Morpurgo and we are looking forward to what exhilarating story Michael Morpurgo has in store for us.

The children from 4th, 5th and 6th class participated in the Cumann na mBunscol competition. We would like to say a big thank you to all who trained the teams. The coaches were: Kathleen Madden, Brian Moloney, Regan Conway, Joey McGann and Michael Daly.
The boys played Broadford at home which they drew. Their last matches were away against Scarriff and Tulla. They were sadly defeated in both games.
The girls played Ruan-Toonagh at home where they were defeated. In their last matches, they won against Barefield and Kilmaley and they proceeded to the semi-finals. In the semi-finals, they faced Ballyea where they were defeated by Ballyea.
We would like to say thanks to the 2 teams for representing Feakle N.S.
The stay safe programme is a subject where we learn about what is safe and what is not.
Our first topic was feelings and we learned how to control them, we now know we should share our feelings to the people we know and trust the most.
Our second topic was bullying, we learned about different types of bullying including cyber and physical bullying. We now know bullying is hurtful, repeated and deliberate.
Our third topic was touches it was based on good and bad touches and touches we are confused about. We learned that we should never ever hurt someone physically and also never touch someone in a way that they are uncomfortable with. We learned to never keep a touch a secret and to say NO, GET AWAY AND TELL!!
Remember to always STAY SAFE!
We held trials to see who was going to represent Feakle N.S in the Poc Fada competition.
Edel ,Chloe , Sophie , Eoghan and Patrick were all battling it out to see who would depict Feakle in the Michael Cusack Centre, Carran, The Burren.
Eoghan, Patrick and Sophie went through and came 4th on the day with 23 shots. The distance we had to hit the ball was 1.2 km and the average was 30 shots. There was cones as half markers. Clooney came 1st retaining the title with 21 shots which means we were only 2 shots of drawing first.
