Second Class visits Derryglad Folk Museum
Second class children (Ms. Dillon & Ms. Stone) visited Derryglad Folk Museum in Co. Roscommon earlier today, Wednesday.  The museum's collection deals with Farm & Folk life in Ireland from the 18th century to the recent past.  The museum houses a unique 25 year collection of over 5,000 items.  These include; horse-drawn machinery restored to the original working order, tradesman’s tools and butter making equipment.  The children had an enjoyable morning.  Click HERE to view photos from the trip.
School Band
The school band, under the guidance of Ms. Lenehan, had its second practice this morning.  There is great interest once again this year with approximately 55 children from 3rd to 6th class taking part.  We have a great range of instruments - keyboard, tin whistle, fiddle, guitar.  Having use of the recently converted general purpose room means there is plenty of space to cater for the numbers.

Well done to Under 21 Club Team
Congratulations to Tubberclare under 21 footballers on winning the county title for the first time since 1977 last Friday evening in Athlone.  They had a four point win over neighbours, Garycastle.  The team was nearly entirely comprised of past pupils and trained by Fergal Wilson and Martin Mc Cabe.  Pictured on the right with the cup are brothers Kevin, Brian and Ross Cooper who are sons of school secretary, Aedine.  Most of the under 21team will be in action again next Saturday evening in the semi-final of the intermediate championship against Rosemount so we wish them well.
A busy lunch time!!

With the fine weather continuing, there was plenty of activity on the field at lunch time today.  The hurlers had their first training session with coach, Enda Dowd, while in all areas of the field, the children were keeping busy!
