We are so lucky to have Paul back again this year from Kevin’s Hurling Club. The infants really enjoyed their first hurling session!
Six happy boys today in Room 11 having their photograph taken with the Sam Maguire and Liam McCarthy Cup!
We spent this afternoon making eye-catching banners for the camogie and hurling finals taking place in Croke Park next week. We practiced chanting, “Let’s Go St. Clare’s, Let’s Go!” while keeping a tapping, clapping beat, and are now really good at it. At home time, we proudly chanted while holding up our banners as those with scooters and bikes passed by our room. We enjoyed this moment a lot and so did the other students passing by. Everyone in Room 18 wishes both teams the very best of luck on Tuesday!
4th class getting creative this afternoon. Croke Park will be a sea of colour with their posters on Tuesday!
The anticipation is building here in St Clare’s. Our Hurling and Camogie teams are preparing and our school community is buzzing!
Junior and senior sports awards in athletics, hurling, camogie and football were presented to students yesterday. Cormac Murphy was awarded Junior Sportsperson of the Year and Oscar Denvir was awarded Senior Sportsperson of the Year.
On Wednesday 7th June the hurlers of 3rd and 4th class travelled to Dolphin Park to participate in the Kevin’s Junior Hurling School Blitz. 5 other schools competed in the competition – Saint Catherine’s, Scoil Iosagáin, Francis Street, Saint James’s and Griffith Barracks. Each and every one of the 26 St. Clare’s players performed excellently on the day, representing the school with a fantastic display of skill, determination and discipline. We were unbeaten in all 5 of our games, conceding an overall total of just 4-1. The cup was proudly carried back to Harold’s Cross. Well done boys!!
