Tag Rugby Blitz

Published by under Sports News

Today, the children in 1st and 2nd class took part in a Tag Rugby Blitz in Buccaneers Rugby club. Cornafulla N.S. had four teams participating and each team played against different schools from Athlone. It’s safe to say all that training on a Wednesday was well worth it, as each team scored a number of tries. It was a great day out for all and we might even have a few professional rugby players in the near future!!!

ISPCA

Published by under Infants,School News

Ms Finn arranged for the three Infant classes to visit the ISPCA in Keena, Co. Longford last week. Ms O’Connell and her Junior Infants  went there last Thursday 30th March. Some of the Senior Infants went with them. Mrs Fitzgerald went too. Kelly was their tour guide. The rest of the Senior Infants went there on Friday 31st March. Ms Finn, Ms Egan and Ms Browne went with these children. Denise was their tour guide.

All of the children really enjoyed the trip. Kelly and Denise told the children about the appalling conditions the animals were in when they first came to the centre. The animals sometimes have to be treated for eye infections and injuries. Most of the animals are suffering from starvation when they come in. All of the animals get regular check ups and  exercise at the centre .

The children got to hold two lovely puppies. These pups are called Blue and Paddington. Ms Finn nearly brought them home! Families are allowed to come to the ISPCA and bring a dog for a walk. Thanks to the parents for sending in the 6 euro for the trip. This covered the cost of the bus and a small donation for the ISPCA. Take a look at our movie!
