The Raising of the Active Flag

In November, on the same day our Girls football team received their North Cork medals from members of the Castletownroche Junior Hurling Team, we were honoured to invite them to help us raise our school’s active flag. We also invited our youngest pupil, Martin Sheehan and eldest pupil, John O’ Sullivan to raise the flag. Thanks to Miss O’Regan and everyone else in the school community who encouraged the promotion of physical activity in the school. We are proud to say we are an active school!

In November, our school’s girls football team made it to the Sciath na Scol North Cork Girls Football final v Glenahulla N.S, winning in spectacular fashion. Ella Barrett was captain on the day and accepted the cup on behalf of the team. Thanks to Mr. Bracken for preparing the team very well. This victory brought great joy to the school community when they came back with the cup. A few weeks later, we were very lucky to have members of the County winning Castletownroche Junior B Hurling team to present the girls with their medals.

The Castletownroche Men’s team also brought their own trophies to show to the kids. The Junior team spoke to our pupils and gave our pupils some encouragement and advice for their future sporting careers.
