Up the Rebels!!
There was a clash of loyalties between Ms Fahy and some of the girls in Rang a 6 today. The girls will be cheering on the Cork footballers as they take on Kerry in Pairc Uí Caoimh. However, Ms Fahy is confident that the men from the Kingdom will get the win.
Huge Congratulations to Second Class A who performed at Cork's City Hall for "Europe Day" 2023, a celebration of our membership of the European Union. Second Class were also presented with an award on the day, for winning the first ever Europe Day Song Competition. Well done boys and girls!
Having already won the South-East qualifying sections in Carrigaline, today the boys' soccer team competed in the Cork County Finals of the FAI Primary 5s Competition in Irish Independent Park.
Today's results saw them first winning 1-0 against Gaelscoil Cloich na Coillte, losing the 2nd game against St. Patrick's and then drawing the 3rd game against Ballinora NS 0-0 to qualify for the semi-finals. Here, after a valiant effort, the team lost against Newcestown 4-1 having lead 1-0 at half-time.
The boys represented Scoil Naomh Eltin admirably, doing themselves proud with some spirited performances and playing some strong, high-quality football. The 4th, 5th and 6th classes were there to support the team and the boost their encouragement gave the players was palpable.
On the soccer front in Scoil Naomh Eltin, attention now turns to the annual end-of-year indoor Soccer League for both boys and girls.
Well done again lads, Scoil Naomh Eltin abú!

A fantastic day was had at world Book Day here at Scoil Naomh Eltin.
Pupils and teachers alike dressed up as their favourite book character. Spirits were high and all students were budding book worms. Delighted to have had the opportunity to purchase new books from our annual Scholastic Book Fair, that has been open at school this past week.Pupils have been purchasing a variety of texts varying from picture story books to factual and fictional narratives and some flashy pieces of stationery!
Our school benefits from all books purchased by students, as we get a percentage to spend on school literacy resources, which is a welcome added bonus!
Pupils listened to the first Chapter of many books where the actual author of the book reads aloud to them. Pupils also received reading award certificates for great reading!
Pupils also engaged in shared/ paired reading with younger classes.
Well done to boys from 5th and 6th Class who were victorious on Monday, 27th of February in the FAI 5-a-side soccer tournament.
SNE played 5 group games, winning four and drawing one. This enabled us to progress to the quarter finals as group winners. Victories in the quarter and semi finals saw us through to the final where we defeated St Mary's Carrigaline in an epic encounter by 3 goals to 1.
The talent, skill and impressive interplay of the boys was matched by their hardwork, togetherness and determination. Each and every player displayed a great attitude and showed admirable resolve.
Our heroic, commanding goalkeeper pulled off some eye catching saves and our general defensive play was calm and assured. This allowed us to start our attacks on the front foot. In midfield there were powerful, surging runs both forward and back. While our attackers showed great work rate and link up play.
Many of the goals scored by SNE on the day would be worthy of iclusion in any Premier League Goal of the Month compilation.
The boys now progress to the next round of the competition in Turner's Cross at the end of March. We will be training hard in the meantime!
