Today is the last day of hurling training this academic year. Mark Keane has worked fantastically with all of the children in STT. From the Infants to Sixth class, each child mastered the essential skills of hurling. The older classes fully embraced the chance to refine their skills and play competitive matches. Take a look at some of the pictures of our talented Junior Infants striking and attacking the sliotar during training.
Children will begin football training next week.
5th and 6th class were very fortunate to take part in a cycling skills course hosted by member of the Carrick on Suir Cycling club. The children learned about how to be safe on the bike when starting and stopping. They also learned specific hand signals that are necessary for safe cycling on the roads. Hope this specialised skills class will make the children aware of the importance of wearing helmets and taking care on public roads.
Congratulations to Ms. Russell's 3rd & 4th Class who wrote and illustrated a wonderful hard back book entitled "When we grow up". Each pupil wrote a piece about what they would like to be when they grow up, they designed and illustrated a picture of their job also. Take a look at the pictures below to see the wonder work they completed.
Autism Awareness Month is taking place for the month of April. At Scoil Teampall Toinne, we decided to complete small activities in our classes which encourage an awareness and appreciation of what life might be like for a person with Autism. The children engaged brilliantly with the various activities. As a whole school we undertook a head or tails challenge. The heads or tails challenge took place outside on the yard where children from all classes competed against each other flipping coins. Well done to Gemma Cahill in Junior Infants who won the challenge.
The school has been a buzz with Easter activities this week, the infants in particular have been busy completing Easter tasks in Aistear. They also participated in an Egg hunt and enjoy tasty smoothies..
Many thanks to the parents council who gifted each child in our school an Easter Egg this week. The children were delighted with their yummy treat.
The students of STT will dress up in their brightest colours tomorrow for Daffodil day. A small donation would be greatly appreciated on the day. All proceeds will be donated to the Irish Cancer Society.
Junior Infants have been very busy this week. They were working in a supermarket, making shopping lists, building lego furniture and training to be baristas and beverage connoisseurs.
Take a look at the images below to see some of the amazing work completed including many lego super markets.

St. Patrick's Day
On Monday our school celebrated the Happy Days St. Patrick's day, we marched up the village dressed in an array of green white and gold. The children loved seeing their parents, friends and families out on the street to support their march.
Check out our STEM page to see all the wonderful work that has taken place as part of engineer's week.
Basketball Mini League
5th and 6th ran a basketball mini-league over the last few weeks. Just like the NBA,this was not without its delays and postponements due to covid but we eventually got through the league and managed to play the final off recently.
After an epic battle, which required a replay, Amy-Rose's team came out victorious.
It was great having the pupils learn a new sport and seeing their skill levels develop as the weeks rolled by was a joy to see.
Congratulations Mrs Quinlan!
A budding engineer-Daniel completed his Zoo project just on time. What began from a small plan turned into a vivid array of colour and highlighted the role of imagination in creating and play. Daniel says anyone can make things, and was in awe throughout the whole process of what could be made with very little materials. Maybe this will inspire you to draw up some plans of your own... Have fun :)
First and Second Class
Senior Infant Fun
Junior Infants had great fun today as we went on a spring walk to the sensory garden. We also made pancake batter in our class. We had a wonderful decorating and eating our pancakes for Shrove Tuesday too.
We are sculptures!
First and Second class were busy last week planning and creating their very own sculptures from clay.
Take a look!
After many delays and postponements of matches, our school mini-league came to a conclusion today after Amy-Rose’s team defeated Ryan’s in the final of the classroom mini-league.
This was the second thrilling instalment after the first game ended in a draw. The sharp shooting of Seán English, along with the game’s MVP, Amy-Rose O’Dwyer, won out the day after a very entertaining final.
The pupils only took up basketball in the middle of October so seeing them develop and master the skills has been fantastic. I think a few of the more GAA orientated pupils learned just how exhausting and physical basketball really is.
It’s always great to experience a new sport and this is something we encourage in the school.
Healthy body, healthy mind!
The teachers in our school will regularly post new blog posts keeping you up to date with all that is happening in Scoil Teampall Toinne.
