Hard luck to our gallant U13 footballers who were beaten by a very strong Lorrha side in Templetuohy on November 25th. The girls and boys left it all out on the pitch and should be very proud of themselves.
South Tipperary Cross Country
Throughout October, Children in the senior room enjoyed a cycling programme, learning new skills and participating in cycling safety activities in the school yard.
Well done to all the senior room who participated in the South Tipperary schools cross country in Marlfield on October 26th. The weather was very kind to us, but the ground was very mucky in places. Zoe Thompson came in 4th place and led the 3rd and 4th class girls to the bronze medal. Tristan Bryne did well to come 6th place in a very competitive 3rd and 4th class boys race. Aobhnait Ryan and Ruby Holohan ran brilliantly to come in the top 25. Ewan Byrne finished in 2nd place leading the boys 5th and 6th class to 5th place in the team section.

This was followed by a short break before the customary races commenced. All the children participated in sprints, laps and fun novelty races such as - spud and spoon, sack race and the three legged race. A tasty lunch and water break was next on the list. This was followed by station activities - Spike Ball, dodge ball, parachute. The day finished off with a whole school dodge ball match. After a little light morning rain the weather held well for the rest of the day and much fun was had by all.

The children all performed brilliantly and won all four of their games against teams from Moycarkey NS and Ballyneale NS. Well done to everyone on a great day.
With Wimbledon looming, children in the senior room dusted off the rackets and tested their skills by partaking in some fun tennis games to learn the skills involved in this great game.
