Well done to the two Scoil Eoin teams who participated in this year’s Cispheil na mBunscoil competition in the Neptune Stadium. The boys enjoyed the whole process, the trials, the training and the tournament itself. Míle buíochas to Mr. O’ Leary and Iníon Ní Bhreathnach who put so much time and effort into the boys.
Congratulations to Scoil Eoin’s U-11 Quiz Team who were victorious in today’s Ballincollig Credit Union Quiz, which was held in the Oriel House Hotel. The team was made up of Oisín, Cillian, Bartek and Caolán (l – r).
Scoil Eoin was well represented by 3 other teams, with a further 12 boys. The boys were excellent and did their school proud. Míle buíochas to Mrs. Mc Grath who prepared the boys so thoroughly. The next step is the Credit Union of Ireland competition in the Rochestown Park Hotel in March. Fingers crossed!!
6th Class have started rugby with Munster Rugby Coach, Matt. The boys are highly competitive and it certainly is great physical exercise.
Senior Infants are enjoying every minute of Aistear! The boys love exploring, engaging and learning!
Scoil Eoin was a sea of festive colour for Christmas Jumper Day with a fantastic display of jumpers, shirts, ties and bow-ties . €600 was raised for St. Vincent de Paul was kindly presented by Adam and Colin.
There was huge excitement when Santa came to visit the boys in Scoil Eoin. All of the boys from Junior Infants to Third Class gathered in the yard to greet Santa, who arrived in serious style! The lucky boys visited Santa with their classes, they listened carefully to his advice for Christmas Eve. Some of the boys entertained Santa with poems and songs, to his delight. The boys were delighted to each receive a selection box.
Well done to Rang a Sé who took on the task of making a Christmas video using Lámh hand signs as part of a campaign raising awareness for Christmas. The boys signed to “Santa Claus is Coming To Town”. Thank you to Miss Keenan for her invaluable direction! You can find the video on the school Twitter account, @scoileoinboys
