Congratulations to Ali, Cian, Seán, Caylee, Paul, Laura, Micheal, Mary, Kian and Conal who were elected to our first ever Students Council following a recent student vote. Each candidate gave a short presentation in front of their classmates before the votes were cast. Our Students Council will allow our children to have a greater say on decisions being made as well as bringing fresh ideas to our school. Thank you to Mrs Maher who set up our Students Council and will be working closely with them in the future.
Mark from SkipnRope visited us recently for a skipping workshop. We learned many new tricks which we look forward to practicing and developing. Our next Skipping with the Stars competition is sure to be interesting!!!

Well done to Ali, Caoimhe, Cian H and Cian R who represented Anglesboro N.S. on the South Limerick schools football teams. Ali and Caoimhe played in the Larkin Shield competition in Rathkeale. The girls were unlucky to come up against a very strong West side that advanced to the final. Cian H and Cian R played in the Sarsfield Cup competition defeating the City in the semi final before losing out once again to a very strong West side in the final. Cian R had the honour of captaining the South in the final which was played in the Gaelic Grounds. Well done everyone

Well done to our boys who won the South Limerick mini 7's football competition. This is an additional football competition we entered this year to give our boys a chance to play against some of the bigger schools in South Limerick. Our boys emerged from their group after playing Bruree and Kilfinane. We played Ballylanders in the semi final before beating Knocklong in the final. We will now go forward to represent South Limerick in the county series. Well done boys!!!

This year we became involved with the Junior Entrepreneur Programme. The senior classes worked closely in groups to come up with business ideas which they presented in a Dragons Den style to local “Dragon” Kevin Lane. After consulting with Kevin, the children decided to invest money in Galtee Gaels/Limerick cups and have been very successful selling almost 200 cups. The children also decided to put the profits towards carrying out work on our school garden and we have been very busy since. Each classroom was given a flowerbed which they planted with cabbage, turnips, carrots, parsley, beetroot, lettuce, cauliflower, onions, sunflowers, etc. The competition between classes has been very interesting!!! We can’t believe how quickly everything is growing. Last week some classes enjoyed a bacon and cabbage dinner using our own potatoes and cabbage. Cian brought us bacon from his family’s farm. This week our 5th and 6th class have been putting the finishing touches to our school garden by painting a mural on the adjacent wall. Thank you to everyone that has supported our Junior Entrepreneur Project and helped to raise money for our school garden.
We are now officially an "Active School". On Tuesday a validator from the Active Schools programme visited us. We were delighted to be awarded our very first Active Schools flag. We launched our Active Schools campaign back in September and have been very busy since with many activities, events and initiatives taking place over the course of the year. A big thank you to our Active Schools committee and Ms Kelly for all their hard work.
