There was lots of excitement in Junior Infants and 1st Class this week. 1st class teamed up with a buddy from Junior Infants to read a story together. The students loved reading with each other and asking each other questions. It was wonderful to watch the love of reading blossom!
We are delighted to share the great news that three of our 6th class students will be representing Kinsale, Cork, Munster and Ireland in the u12 Rugby World Cup tournament in Marseille this week. The boys will play teams from all over the world as well as taking in a live World Cup game between South Africa and Scotland! We are very proud of our student athletes and we are sure they will represent us with distinction.
RTE News will broadcast a report on the team from Kinsale on Wednesday at 6pm and 9pm on RTE 1. Tune in to catch a glimpse of the boys before they jet off.
Go n-éirí libh agus bonne chance!
Well Done To Rang 2A- The World's Greatest Rap Artists
Well done to all our fantastic athletes, who represented Scoil Naomh Eltin so well at MTU in the annual Cork City Sports competition this year.
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!
