Just like that it's Mid-Term Break! Seomra 4 - A look back at what we got up to.

On August 29th, twenty nine enthusiastic students filled Seomra 4 for their first day in fifth and sixth class. Since then they have been very busy working through the curriculum and enjoying lots of extra curricular activities too.

Cumann na mBunscol
Our boys and girls teams both participated in the cumann na mBunscol Football competitions.
The girls team played Boyerstown, Carnaross, Kilbride and Oristown. Unfortunately the results didn't go our way, however there were some excellent team performances with each girl on the team improving her skills as the weeks passed. One of our players suffered a broken wrist during a game and we wish her a speedy recovery.
The boys team played Carlanstown, Drumconrath, Kilbride, Kilmanhamwood and Oristown. They showed great skill and determination to win four out of five of these matches. This means that they have qualified to a quarter final of the competition. They face Boyerstown after the midterm break.
We wish them every luck as they see out this competition!

Student Council Election
On September 23rd Elections were held to form our new student council for the 2019/2020 school year. Many wonderful candidates put their names forward and put together excellent election campaigns. Votes were cast and two students emerged successful from Seomra 4; huge congratulations to Lee Barry and Shannon McMahon on their election, best of luck to both Councillors. Well done to all students who participated in the election.

Club Active Visit
26th September was Nation Fitness Day. All classes were put through their paces by Club Active with a tough outdoor fitness session. The fifth and sixth class students did a lot of complaining; but they really enjoyed the session.

Secondary School Visits
As the children's time in primary school comes to an end they have an important decision to make in deciding which secondary school to attend. They are very lucky in Moynalty with a vast array of wonderful school in the locality. We have already been visited by Nobber SS, Eureka SS, St. Ciaran's SS and we expect a visit from Bailieborough SS on the first day back after Mid-term break. These visits are a great insight into what children can expect in secondary school and the range of subjects and extra curricular activities available to them.

Peace Proms 2020
We have been selected as one of the schools to participate in Peace Proms 2020. This is a very exciting opportunity for pupils from 2nd - 6th class. Our choir consists of 52 members and we will be attending workshops and rehearsals in the run up to our performance in the RDS on Saturday February 1st at 8pm.

We have lots to look forward to after mid-term break, check in again soon to find out what else we are getting up to!
