CURRACLOE SCHOOL NEWS

Since October of last year, Wexford artist Helen McLean has been working with the pupils of Curracloe national school to create an 'outdoor classroom'. Among the pieces created were painted table tops.

Using the theme of ` our world ` the pupils designed and painted the tables over two months. They also designed and assembled 9 mosaic panels using recycled materials collected from their homes and the local parish and all the pupils were involved in the project making bug environments and a weather station.

The project was funded through a grant from the Department of Education & Science following the recent completion of an extension to the school. The Board of Management, staff and pupils of the school would like to invite all parents, families and the local community along to attend the official launch of the project on Tuesday, March 23, beginning at 7p.m.

The boys from Curracloe were once again successful in going through to the next round of the Mini 7's, this time in hurling. Well done on winning all matches. The girls teams played very well again, winning one of their matches, but were unfortunate not to get through to the next round. Well done to fourth class pupil Kirsty Fanning on winning a silver medal in the Castlebridge/Crossabeg U12 Community Games Art competition held recently.

The fifth and sixth class pupils in Mr. Hackett's class had a visit from Mr. Chris Wilson of Wexford Wildfowl Reserve last week when he gave a talk and slideshow presentation on wildlife, mammals and Captain Scott's journey to the Antarctic. The children were shown a variety of photographs and given lots of useful information.

Contact the school on 053-9137283 to register your child for September 2010, or download a form from the school website www.curracloens.ie.

GAA NEWS

The Shels met St. Annes away last Saturday in the senior football league (Round 2) and with both teams missing some players it led to a well contested game.

The teams were evenly matched for the first 10 minutes but gradually the Shels started to win the mid-field battle and pulled away to lead 0-9 to 0-3 at half time. In the second half St Annes had the slight hill advantage but the Shels were attacking less and defending more.

As a result St Annes scored 0-7 to 02 for the Shels and it was all to play for with only 5 minutes remaining and one point between the teams. However the Shels dug deep and scored the two last points through Mark Tobin and Derek Walsh to leave the final score at 0-13 for the Shels to 0-11 for St Annes.

That's two wins out of two - a good start to the year. The senior hurling team start their league campaign on Sunday evening next, March 21 against Faythe Harriers in Pairc Charman at 5 p.m. and the unior hurling team are provisionally down to meet Geraldine O'Hanrahans in New Ross on Saturday evening at 5 p.m. Check web page for confirmation. www.shelmaliers.ie
