In late September most of the pupils took part in the West Clare Cross-Country races. It was a wet, cold and rainy day. They competed in U8s, U10s and over 10s. Five people got through to the Clare cross-country finals in Lees Road. Nicole Griffin won her race in the U8s. The U10 girls came third in the team event. The over tens did very well with only 3 runners. Well done to all of the runners.
A huge congratulations to all those who took part and represented the school with great spirit and enthusiasm. Well done to those who won medals and trophies.
Thank you to all the parents who helped out on both occasions. Go raibh míle maith agaibh.
Caherea is very proud to consider itself an Active School. Led by the Student Council, all the pupils make a huge effort to create a school that encourages everyone to be as active as possible.
The school has made a tremendous effort at completing their active homework supplied by the Clare Sports Partnership. It has been wonderful to see the children getting more than the 60 minutes of exercise everyday! Well done to all and to the Active Committee for demonstrating the exercises each day.
Active Logo and Slogan
The Active Committee held a competition for our school’s active slogan and logo. Such were the entries that they could not pick a winner and have decided to change it each month. The slogan and logo will be shown and mentioned at our monthly assembly and put on the Active School Noticeboard.
Pupils from the senior room have taken on the responsibility of being yard leaders. From Monday to Thursday they set up games for the junior classes and encourage them to take part and be active. As part of this, the Active Committee have rearranged the yard activities for the senior yard. Great work by all!
Below you will find the newsletters from throughout the school year. The newsletters are a chance for us to share the great work being done by everyone in the school, congratulate all those who have participated in the various school events and thank those who have helped us throughout the year.
