Our Sports day
Yesterday we took part in the school athletics in the RSE . 46 Children took part in the event. Pupils did sprints long distance and the big favourite the relay. We won 36 medals overall second best smallest school. We had an amazing day and were delighted to represent Faithlegg School. 3 cheers for all the pupils of Faithlegg who took part.
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.
