Clare Bike Week took place from the 20th-27th September 2020. As part of their week of celebration of all things two-wheeled, they held a competition for primary schools to design a new hi-vis jacket for their school. The winner would see their design on 30 new hi-vis jackets for the school. On Tuesday, we received word that Tríona McNamara, 6th class, was the winner of this competition from across the county. Well done to Tríona! Please see below, Tríona’s winning design. We can’t wait to received these beautiful hi-vis jackets!
Feakle NS celebrated Clare Bike Week 2020 between the 21st and 25th September. Students were encouraged to practice their bike skills at home, to cycle to and from school for the week and to design a brand new hi-vis jacket for the school. Congrats to all students who got involved and to all parents who followed the students to school with their schoolbags!
A massive thank you to all members of the school community and the wider community of Feakle that donated to the Cash for Clobber collection between the 21st and 25th September 2020.
