We held Sports Day at St Aengus NS on Wednesday 10th May during a week of beautiful weather. We ran 100m, 200m and 400m races, ran the three legged race, sack race and egg and spoon race. We placed tunnel ball in teams, competed in the Puc Fada and sixth class even ran in a dress up race. We had lots of fun in the summer sun.
Finally, Sixth Class competed in a fancy dress race, they last ever race in Primary School!
The Active School’s Week took place from the 24th -28th of April, 2017. Active School’s Week is an initiative that is organised in schools across Ireland annually, which provides physical activity opportunities for the whole school community that are enjoyable and inclusive to all.
This year Mr Kelly and Sixth class organised activity stations in the school hall for each class. Each station was manned by students from Sixth class who modeled and helped us complete each task.
Senior Infants and First Class get active!
Fifth class ge Doing t active!
St Aengus NS Debating Team won the Concern’s Primary School Debating Final in Donegal against Kilmacrennan NS at the Mount Errigal Hotel in Letterkenny on Friday 31st March.
The motion put forward was ‘primary aged children do not need mobile phones’ and St Aengus proposed this.
Leahrose Davis, Rachel Bradley and Leo Doherty spoke on the day with the help of researchers John Mc Daid, Allannah Curran and Eoghan Strain, who also debated on the journey to the final.
Time Keepers were Michael Doherty and Ethan Coyle.
Their teachers who have worked hard towards success with the team are 5th class teacher Ms Connaughton and resource teacher Ms O’ Donnell.
The team now look forward to the regional final coming up some time in May.
This week, fifth class took part in the National Spring Clean by collecting rubbish around the school and down the road toward Bridgend. We were accompanied by Ms Faulkner, Ms Connaughton and Maureen Mc Laughlin.
National Spring Clean is Ireland’s most popular, well recognized and successful anti-litter initiative. Taking place during the whole month of April and now in its 17th year, the campaign encourages every sector of society to actively participate and take responsibility for litter, by actually conducting clean ups in their own local environment.
We were supplied with all the materials we needed from the National Spring Clean website, including bags, gloves and pickers. We collected many bags of litter and have hopefully inspired our fellow citizens to go out and do the same!
Rinne rang 3, rang 4, rang 5 and rang 6 Tráth na gCeist as Gaeilge chun Seachtain na Gaeilge a chéiliúradh. Bhí deich ceist i ngach bhabhta. Bhaineamar an-sult as an tráthnóna agus bhí deis againn ár gcuid Gaeilge a chleachtadh freisin.
Bhí comórtas ealaíne ag na ranganna fósta. Bhí an ealaín sna hardranganna bunaithe ar seanfhocail agus frásaí do na bunranganna.
