This week as part of Maths Week 5th & 6th are taking part in a Mangahigh Maths Competition. This is an online competition where you have to try and get as many badges as possible. Our aim is to get Mangahigh Medals - over 50 Gold Badges!
We are also doing the daily Senior Brainteaser from PDST. Our brains are working overtime this week. It's lucky the Hallowe'en break is coming up!
We are SUPER organised here in St Colman's - we have been designing our own Christmas Cards. We did a great job and they're gone off to be printed now. Can't wait to see the finished products.
We would like to thank the Parents' Association for organising their Annual Church Gate collection last weekend. They raised €786.07
Well done to 5th & 6th who took part in a Football Blitz on Friday. Despite the awful wet weather they had a great time. Many thanks to Colm who coached them on the day.
Congratulations to our 4th class boys who came 1st and 2nd place in a Table Quiz held in Boherbue last Friday night. In 1st place we had Eoin O'Keeffe, Daragh Quirke, Noel Forde, Dan O'Rourke. Stephen Sheehan, Ronan Harrington, Paddy Duggan and Craig McKiernan were 2nd.
Well done to the boys in 5th and 6th class who attended the quiz too and came joint 2nd with three other schools missing out narrowly on the tie breaker round. They were Shane Fitzgerald, Shane Carver, David Allen, Laurynas Barbsys, Robert Stefanski, Kallum Young, Paul O'Sullivan and Jack Quirke.
4th class boys took part in a Football Blitz in Newmarket on Wednesday October 12th. The boys had an enjoyable day out.
Many thanks to the 6th Class Refs - Gary & Dylan who helped put on the day.
2nd and 3rd class boys went to the library last Friday where they were entertained by the storyteller and cartoon artist Wayne O'Connor. They really enjoyed his stories. We thank the library for inviting us.
