The pupils of Scoil Oilibhéir skipped to school today with even more than their usual enthusiasm……. a day of fun and games lay instore. The younger pupils made their way to the playground in Kempton Park while the senior pupils headed off to The Glen. The little ones also had a bouncy castle….what more could you want?! The morning was spent getting active and every child enjoyed taking part in a huge variety of activities. All trooped back to school ‘tuirseach traochta caite amach’  but smiling after a great day of fun. The Friends of Scoil Oilibhéir came up trumps yet again – not only were they on hand to help during the day but they made sure that every child got a drink and a treat before going home. Many thanks to them for their great support and thanks also to the many parents who accompanied us on the day.

Here in Scoil Oilibhéir we have always had a very special relationship with parents, and indeed grandparents,who are after all the primary educators of their children. This special partnership has blossomed over the years and parents have given continued support to every new initiative and project that the school has undertaken in order to enhance the educational experiences of our pupils. The Friends of Scoil Oilibhéir have been instrumental in harnessing the good will of our parent body and, as a result of their fundraising events, Scoil Oilibhéir continues to provide a wide – ranging and enjoyable education for all of our pupils. We held a very special ‘Thank You’ event today so that parents and grandparents could come and view the school and see where their money has been spent and how their children have benefited from their unfailing support and generosity. Parents, and extended families, visited the school this morning and were given a tour of our newest facilities and equipment. Having been entertained by the School Choir and the School Band parents then had the opportunity to see our children play in the new garden and playtrail; they visited our wonderfully stocked new library ‘Tír na Sí; they observed children working on newly purchased iPads and they also visited the polytunnel where children have been planting and tending to summer vegetables and flowers. Parents were then invited to visit the classrooms where they observed their children at work and were treated to some songs, rhymes and drama. The visit concluded with a sociable ‘cuppa’ – kindly provided by the Friends of Scoil Oilibhéir. What a lovely way to thank parents who are always so willing to support the school and to play such a vital role in their children’s education.

Today was a day to remember here in Scoil Oilibhéir as our fantastic hurlers made their way to Páirc Uí Rinn to play Carrigtwohill in the Sciath na Scol Final. Seven bus loads of supporters, all decked out in the school colours, were in fine voice as they followed the team to Páirc Uí Rinn.

The pitch was bathed in summer sunshine and all was in readiness for a fabulous final. Unfortunately we lost our captain early on but the boys showed skill and tenacity having left in an early goal. Undeterred they played on and our supporters played a vital role as they cheered the team on. The boys battled hard, scoring three goals in total, but they met a better team on the day and Carrigtwohill took home the cup.

However, there was nothing lost in defeat as the boys gave of their best and we are immensely proud of their efforts and achievements. Their mentors Mr O’Driscoll, Mr. Ryng, Mr. Elliffe and Mr. Barry praised the commitment of the team and also thanked the boys’  parents for their unfailing support throughout the campaign.

The team received a warm welcome back in school where every pupil came out to greet them and to give them a well deserved ‘Hurrah’! We have no doubt that these boys will go on to represent the school, and their clubs, in the future.
