Athea Hurling Launch Day

Athea Hurling Launch Day- Sunday May 26th at 11:30am.
After 6 successful weeks of Hurling Training we are having a Launch Day at the club. We have between 40-50 kids in attendance each Sunday and are going from strength to strength.
This Sunday we will have County Coaching Officer Mike Cunningham and Games Development Officers  to put us through our paces.
The Liam McCarthy Cup will also be at the pitch with plenty of opportunity for photos.
We will also have our main Sponsor Thomas O’Mahony of Maylim, London at the launch. Thomas has played a key role in getting Hurling off the ground again in Athea and we are very grateful to him.
There will be refreshments afterwards until 1:30pm.
See you on Sunday : )

Hurling Victory

History was made in Athea school during the month of May. For the first time in thirty years pupils from the school played in the West Limerick League. We are very proud and the hurling pupils from 4th, 5th, 6th are a credit to their parents, coaches and the parish. Here is to many more games. Thanks to all who helped Miss Nash. It is very much appreciated.

iPad’s and Story Creator App

On Friday Senior Infants had a great fun learning how to use ”Story Creator” App. Our pupils learned how to use modern technology to write a good story and how to illustrate a book. iPad’s were used for typing and drawing. We learned how to write capital letters on the keyboard and that the long key is called space bar. We can use it for our finger space between words. We had a very creative day while learning – have a look !!!

St. Patrick’s Day

Today we were celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. Everyone had something green, some pupils had lovely face painting. Each class made St. Patrick’s related activities or arts and crafts. The children in our Pre-school are ready to celebrate and have fun, look at them 🙂
