Well done to the boys hurling team who have qualified for the B final against Crecora in the Gaelic Grounds. The boys hurled against Doon CBS, Lisnagry N.S. and Crecora N.S. today. It was the first time ever that Caherline entered the 13 a-side competition and we were extremely proud of the boys as they continued to battle in each game and never gave up. Well done boys.
Well done to Hugh Murnane who has been selected to play on the Limerick Primary Game hurling team against Clare on the 17th of June in Cusack Park in Ennis at half time of the Limerick vs Clare Senior Hurling Munster Championship game. This is a fantastic honour for Hugh and we are all very proud of him.
In conjunction with Limerick Sports Partnerships we are taking part in a walking challenge in our school. We completed our first 1km today around our Active walkway. This initiative is called the Fit Kidz Kilometre Walking Challenge.
This initiative involves school children and teachers taking up the challenge to complete distances of 10km or 21km. Each class in the school wishing to take part in this initiative will receive a Challenge Resource Pack. This pack includes a large poster for each participating class and individual cards allowing students to track their own progress in the challenge. Walks can be completed anywhere and each school can complete the challenge at their own pace.
We will complete this initiative at 10.45am every day.
The whole school went on their school tours today to different locations. This year the school tours featured lots of activities in conjunction with our active flag campaign. Juniors and Seniors visited Parsons Green where they had a boat ride, visited the indoor and outdoor playgrounds and went on an adventure walk looking at different types of animals. 1st, 2nd and 3rd went to Leahys Farm where they took part in indoor and outdoor play areas, climbing on the Climbing Frame, walking along the Adventure Trail and had some fun on the pedal go-karts. 4th, 5th & 6th visited Ballyhass Lakes where they took part in the water park, zip-lining, climbing frames, team building exercises and abseiling. There was loads of activities throughout the day and everyone had such a fantastic time. We are sure that there will be some tired pupils this evening after all their activities today.
