Thank you to Miss Appleby, Leo and Colin who represented Scoil Eoin at Ballincollig Tidy Town’s Annual Awards. We are very proud of our school environment and particularly our gardens. It is gratifying to have our hard work recognised and acknowledged.
The National Council for the Blind Used Clothing Collection tookplace recently in Scoil Eoin. Each bag of clothing collected raised €5 for Scoil Eoin and €20 for the benefit of people with sight loss. Thank you kindly to the many families who contributed.
Learning through play is so important, particularly in the Junior end of the school. Senior Infants love the variety during Aistear!
Mr. O’ Leary’s Junior Infants became nature explorers while on their Leaf Trail durin National Tree Day.
We are lucky to have fabulous trees lining our yards in Scoil Eoin and the colours at this time of the year are stunning.
We were thrilled to welcome back two of our four legged friends, Woody and Lily for World Animal Day. They were both SUCH a hit with the boys in Scoil Eoin. The dogs adored the rubs and attention!
Thank you so much to World and Olympic athlete, Sanita Puspure who found time upon her return to Ireland to pop in to Scoil Eoin! It was wonderful to see Sanita in the flesh and congratulate her, after her excellent performance at the recent World Rowing Championships in Sarasota, Florida. Sanita has worked harder that usual (and that is VERY hard) as she participated in a rowing camp in Spain and then represented Ireland in the World Rowing Championships, along with the other members of the Irish Rowing Team.
Sanita raced brilliantly all throughout the championships in the women’s single sculls, despite a disrupted training schedule this year. She was very unlucky not to collect the bronze medal, but fourth in the world is a fantastic achievement!
We are incredibly proud of Sanita in Scoil Eoin. She sacrifices so much, especially being away from her family. Yet she still continues to be one of the BEST rowing athletes in the world! Also a special thank you to Sanita who despite exhaustion after a great championships, still brought us the mascot to add to Miss Reihill’s collection!
