Our Latest………

We are currently taking part in an Erasmus+  project centred around the ‘Way of St.James’ (‘Camino de Santiago’), a pilgrimage also undertaken by James Rice, a Waterford man who served as Mayor eleven times in the 15th Century. He made the journey from Waterford to Compostela in Spain via France. The three schools involved are located along this route.

The content of this project will look at the history and life of James Rice, rivers/seas on which he travelled and various other activities to help share ideas and culture between participants and schools.

The schools involved in this project with Faithlegg NS are from North West Spain – Sigüeiro-Oroso, in Galicia and Brest in France. Some of our 5th and 6th class students, 19 in total travelled to Sigüeiro- Oroso and Santiago at the end of March. (See our Erasmus Posts page).

Inter Schools U-13 Hurling League

WELL DONE to the U-13 Faithlegg Hurling team, who are pictured here after winning their last game.

They put in a fantastic performance, and played some great hurling throughout the whole competition. Keep up the good work boys – maith sigh!!

Visit from R.T.E today………………..

GIY Ireland are hoping to get children across Ireland growing their own food in classrooms this spring. To mark this occasion they paid us a visit today with RTE News2day and Mick Kelly from Waterford GIY who shared his top secret seed growing tips. They were so impressed with our school garden and the work that the children and Jimmy have done to date. 6th class got involved in the filming today. Here is the link for ‘News2day’ to see our segment.

School garden:

Plans are underway to create a school garden in memory of a much loved teacher Mrs Patricia Doherty.

The garden will be located to the front of the school near the greenhouse. Mr Malachy Doherty has agreed to assist with the design and advise on which plant and flowers would be suitable. Malachy has also arranged sponsorship for 100 euro worth of bulbs from the Glanbia CountryLife store in Dungarvan where he works.

The garden will have a bench with a commemorative plaque to honour the contribution Patricia made to Faithlegg N.S.
