Pumpkin Carving

We were bowled over by the amazing carved pumpkins we got from pupils for our pumpkin carving competition.  We just couldn’t choose an overall winner, so everyone is a winner! Pupils all got a treat for their efforts.

Guess the Weight of the Pumpkin Results!

At the cake sale we had a guess the weight of the pumpkin competition. The exact weight was 8.3Kg and Maeve was spot on with her guess. Well done Maeve.

Cross Country-Marlfield

We had a great day at the cross country competition in Marlfield on Wednesday. There were lots of individual medals and team medals. Gold for Ava and silver for Annie! Silver for Erin and Seán and bronze for Maeve!

For team medals we had gold for the boys 3rd and 4th and for the girls 5th and 6th. Silver medals for the girls in the 3rd and 4th, bronze for boys in 5th and 6th.

Well done to all pupils who ran on the day.
