Firoda National School
Last Friday, we were fortunate enough to have the Sprocket Rocket team visit us from the Kilkenny Recreation and Sports Partnership. The Sprocket Rocket Programme is a foundation cycling skills programme aimed at 7 to 11 year olds. Children from 3rd Class up to 6th Class had great fun learning and developing their cycling skills. They focussed on braking, balance, pedalling and cornering. Pictured are the boys and girls from Third Class after their session which they thoroughly enjoyed.
On Tuesday 24th September Michael Fortune from the Heritage in Schools Scheme visited us. Michael spent time with the children in 1st & 2nd, 3rd & 4th, 5th & 6th Classes. He talked about our local heritage with us. He showed us how we can find out more information about our local towns land (the meaning of it, Irish words native to the area) and how the area (landscape) has changed over the years. We made necklaces from berries in our group. He also showed us how to make a wristband from the harvest.
We would like to extend a warm welcome to our new Junior Infants. Pictured in the back row from left to right; Alexia, Charlie, Diarmuid, Darragh and Conor. In the front row from left to right; Leo, Harry, Eoghan, Lottie and Tessa. We would also like to welcome Will, Delvin and Lucas who have also joined us in First and Second Class. We hope you will all have a happy, enjoyable and educational stay in our school.
We would like to say a huge well done to all the boys from Firoda National School who represented our school in the Roinn A competition this year! The boys reached both the county semi final and the country cup semi final, and unfortunately were narrowly defeated! The boys gave some outstanding performances throughout the year and there is no doubt that we will see some of these rising stars in the future! A big thanks to Sir Meagher for all his work and effort with the team all year!
