Hurlers narrowly defeated in county final

Our school hurling team put in a terrific performance earlier this evening in Cusack Park Mullingar in the Cumann na mBunscol division 2 final.  From start to finish, the lads chased every ball and played their hearts out.  The sides were level at half time and it was only in the concluding stages that St. Tola's, Delvin secured victory on a scoreline of 3-6 to 2-3.  It has been a great year for the hurlers thanks to the efforts of coaches, Enda Dowd and Ms. Dervin.  The lads are pictured below before the throw in.

Cycle Safe programme for 6th class

The Cycle Safe programme for 6th class started this morning.  This programme aims to assist young people in gaining the skills and knowledge to safely cycle and hopefully encourage them into the world of cycling as a mode of transport, and as a source of recreation and sport.  The programme is co-ordinated by Westmeath Sports Partnership and will run for four weeks.  Click HERE for more information.

35th Annual School Sports - next Tuesday

The 35th annual school sports day will take place next Tuesday, 24th May, from 9.45 in the school field.  Please note that events for Junior and Senior Infants will be on first so don't miss it!  Thankfully, the forecast at the moment is for a fine day.  Accordingly, the children should wear tops that cover the shoulders, a peaked cap and sun protection.  Children can wear their own clothes.  The Parents' Association will be providing refreshments in the G.P. room.  Tea/coffee will be served so, for safety purposes, children will note be allowed in the G.P. room.  If parents are bringing their children home early, the teacher should be informed.

Community Games Athletics

The athletics section of the local Community Games took place in Tubberclair G.A.A. on Wednesday evening.  There was a great turnout.  Well done to all the children that participated.

School Defibrillator
The school recently relocated its defibrillator to outside the front door so that it would be available to the wider community.  This is part of the initiative being undertaken by the recently formed Tubberclair/Glasson Defibrillator Group to have a defibrillator in all areas of the parish.  Currently, there are nine defibrillators located around the parish.  The group has also organised training for members of the community.  In school, the children held a 'no uniform day' earlier this year and raised €380 which went towards the purchase of the cabinet for the defibrillator.  Pictured below are members of the healthy school committee along with Niall Coghill from the local defibrillator group.  (Photo - Ann Hennessy)
Hurlers reach county final
Well done to the school hurling team on reaching the Cumann na mBunscol Division 2 hurling final which will take place next Monday at 6 p.m. in Cusack Park, Mullingar.  The boys recorded a very good win over Whitehall yesterday in Tubberclair G.A.A.  They will play either St. Tola's or Ballymore in the final.  The school previously won hurling titles in 2009 and 2012.
Footballers defeated in semi-final

Hard luck to our footballers who were defeated by Kinnegad in the football championship semi-final earlier today in Kinnegad.  The boys were beaten by a better team but they can look back on a year in which they performed very well overall.
