Sports Day 2019

On Friday 7th June, we had our Sports for All day and what a day we had! Our boys and girls had the time of their lives running and racing, skipping and splashing, bouncing and building, parachuting and playing. A huge thank you to the parents and friends of Scoil Chlíodhna for taking part and helping out today – we could not have had a successful sports day without you! Below are a selection of pictures from the day but check out our Facebook Page to see what else we got up on Sports Day!              ...

Active School Week 2019

Our school organises an Active School Week as part of our annual school calendar and this is something we all look forward to! We wear our tracksuits for the whole week and during Active School week we travel to school as actively as possible, for some this means walking the whole way to school and for others this means walking from the top car park. During this week our Sports Day also takes place. Our Active School week took place from 4th – 7th June 2019.  Here is a look at some of the things we enjoyed during our Active Week… Tuesday           Wednesday                                 ...

Sports Day 2018

Friday was the last day of our Active Week celebrations and what a way to finish! From early morning, preparations were underway for Sports Day 2018. Our boys and girls had the time of their lives running and racing, skipping and splashing, bouncing and building, parachuting and playing. A big Thank You must go to all the parents and friends of Scoil Chlíodhna, not just for attending but for taking part with a heart and a half. We could not have had a successful Sports Day without you  It’s on days like this that we are reminded of what a very special community we are part of and to see everyone sitting around at break, chatting and relaxing, was a highlight for the staff. There are lots of pics on our Facebook page but here are a selection from the day! Well done everybody!

Active Week 2018 Pictures

Monday What a fantastic start to our Active Week! Thanks to Finny O’Regan from Munster Rugby for showing us some new rugby skills, the children loved it! We practiced different drills and learned about some of the rules involved when playing rugby!   Tuesday Today we were very lucky to have Craig Harrington – the Cork Athletics Development Officer come to our school and play some athletics related games with us focusing on coordination, jumping, jogging, sprinting and throwing. We had so much learning new skills and some games we can play in P.E   Wednesday Today was our Jersey Day and we also had G.A.A with Múinteoir Séan. Séan is a Games Development Administrators for the East Cork Area and works with different Primary and Post Primary Schools. In a random act of kindness today, Múinteoir Sean presented Múinteoir Joanne with her very own Cork jersey when he saw she had to ‘resort’ to a Kerry jersey on our special Jersey Day! Go raibh míle maith agat Múinteoir Seán! We also had Zumba with Jamie as a special Active Week treat – check our Facebook page for the videos!          Thursday Today Tania O’Flynn from Badminton Ireland came to visit the Senior Infants and First Class. She introduced us to some badminton skills – we learned all about the shuttlecock and how to hold the badminton racket correctly. We also had a chance to play a game of badminton with our friends! We had so much fun! Afterwards we joined up with the Junior Infants for our ‘Walk a mile with a smile’. What a great day!  ...
