BARNTOWN SCHOOL NEWS

Mini Sevens: The school teams in boys and girls football were in action in this competition in recent weeks. Both teams acquitted themselves well giving fine performances. The boys were unlucky to loose out by just one point in the final match. Our thanks to the teachers who trained the teams and to the parents who provided transport to the matches and show support on the sidelines.

Science Project: Mr. Mernagh and her Senior Infants have been experimenting again. The topic last week was "Alive, Dead & Never Alive". Each child had to find - and bring to school - an object/item from each category. The children's imaginations were way more adventurous than Teachers expectations and some "real living creatures" arrived to the classroom on Thursday morning. Everybody had a great time though and Teacher now believes in the old saying "you live and learn"!

Special Assembly: Following a variety of events which took place during "Seachtain na Gaeilge" the whole school gathered in the main hall yesterday (Tuesday) for a celebration of Irish music, poetry and dance. The children were delighted to dress in "green" for the occasion and a really fun time was had by all.

No uniform day: There will be a no uniform day on March 26 in association with the Barntown Community Charity Day which is taking place on the weekend of March 28.

Donations are voluntary and any funds raised will be given to Wexford Hospice Homecare and the Irish Cancer Society.

CAMOGIE

The Glynn/ Barntown Camogie Parish League got underway on Sunday morning last.

The first match was between team A, captained by Deborah Fitzharris and team B captained by Aine Doyle. This was a highly contested match which saw team A come from a 6 point deficit at half time to come out the eventual winners.

The second match was between team C, captained by Liz Wickham and team D, captained by Mairead Furlong. This too was a hotly contested match. Some blood was even shed! Deep into injury time team C was awarded a free and the super accurate Roisin Doyle put it over the bar to make it a draw.

Round 2 of the parish League will take place next Sunday morning with the first match starting at 11.00am sharp followed by the second match at 11.50am. Please come along and support the ladies.
