Well done to our excellent runners from Brú AC who took part in and were successful in winning medals at an Athletic event in Clare over the weekend. Keep up the running kids!
Any interested pupil can bring their hurley and helmets to school and a sliotar will be provided to them if they wish to take part in hurling/camogie in the alley during break and lunch times. This is an initiative being organised by Limerick GAA. A meeting took place in February by Limerick GAA Games Development Administrators James Ryan and Ollie Coffey which was attended by Mr.Power and Mr. McCarthy. This is a new initiative which the school are glad to be part of.
Today, we had our first hurling session in school with James Ryan, Limerick GAA GDA. We are very fortunate to have such an excellent coach and role-model, coming to our school and teaching the skills of hurling to the children in our school. Thankfully, we were able to train all classes today in the Handball Alley, despite the poor weather.
Many thanks to parent Jackie Gaffrey who has organised, through Limerick Sports Partnerships, a four week training programme for all pupils, in the lead up to the Great Limerick Run. All pupils are being encouraged to take part in the GLR, and Jackie has organised for a coach to come and run the Great Limerick Run 4 Fun programme in our school. We had our first training session today and all pupils really enjoyed it.
Herbertstown AFC have set up a "Football for All Program" for children from 5 to 18. This will enable "children with a variety of disabilities such as dyspraxia, autism and physical, intellectual and sensory disabilities" to play soccer for the club. It is wonderful news for many families in our area. Well done to Herbertstown AFC on this decision.
