1A Sponsored Walk

As part of their CSPE class 1A decided that they would like to organise an event that would raise funds for break time activities in the school. They decided it would be a good idea to organise a sponsored walk and use the funds raised to purchase a Foosball table that could be used by students at lunchtime. They set to work getting permission from the Gardai, designing sponsorship cards, and planning the route using Google Maps. On Wednesday the 25th of May 2022, they set out for their walk at about 10:40am. Luckily the weather stayed dry for them and they enjoyed a little break amid their summer tests. The reward at the end of the walk was a pit stop at SuperValu for some ice cream. It was a very successful event and they were delighted to raise €511.74. A sincere thank you to all the friends and family who sponsored the students and to their CSPE teacher Mr O’Suilleabhain for helping them organise the event.

Pool Tournment

Over the past week, there has been great excitement at lunchtime as students took part in a pool tournament. The starting 32 students were whittled down to the final 4, Anna-Mai, Kevin, Gerard, and Joseph. After Anna-Mai and Joseph lost out in the two semi-finals it was an all 5th year final between Gerard and Kevin. Gerard made a very good start and it looked like it was all over but Kevin made a great comeback and in the end it was very close with Gerard emerging victorious. In the 3rd place playoff between Joseph & Anna-Mai it again was a close contest where an unlucky potting of the black ball by Anna-Mai meant Joseph secured 3rd place. Gerard, Kevin, and Joseph were presented with their prizes by Mr Dolan. Many Thanks to Mr P Dolan for organising and overseeing the event.

Willowbrook Glamping and Hideaways

On Monday the the 23rd of May, fifth year LCVP students experienced their visit- out to a local enterprise; Willowbrook, by the banks of the river Lung, Ballaghaderreen, County Roscommon.  The students were given a tour of the glamping grounds, and their tour guide, Tuesday, told them the history and process of how they built their enterprise from the ground up. It was an incredibly informative experience and Willowbrook is truly the place to “Escape the Everyday.”  (By Ciara Hassett & Eva Coleman)
