|Scoil Ursula N.S.||
Last week was Maths Week and as part of the school’s participation, our 5th Classes went to a very enjoyable Maths Puzzling Workshop with mathematician, Fernando Blasco in the IT on Wednesday morning. Lots of Scoil Ursula 'Guinea Pigs' were used in the Maths experiments but none were harmed!! See how they got on below:
We had another successful Supervalu Athletics Fest on Friday, when 36 athletes from Scoil Ursula participated in this very enjoyable annual event in Sligo IT. Six out of our nine teams qualified for finals on the day. Out of those finalists we had a second, a third and a fourth place finish and these out of competitions of thirty-two participants or more. Our Senior Girls came 2nd in their 100m sprint while our Senior Boys came in third in their 100m race. Well done to all our athletes on a brilliant display!!
Congratulations to the Scoil Ursula Cross Country Athletics teams who performed so well on Saturday. Well done to the two boys' teams, who won silver and qualified for the Connacht Finals next weekend! Congratulations to Fionn & Michael who came 1st and 3rd in the Senior Boys Race. Good luck to our sprint athletes who perform in Sligo IT on Friday!!!
As you probably know, our local GAA Club, St. Mary's, are in the County Final on Sunday. Because of our close connections to the club, we're trying to show our support as a school. Please help us by spreading the word about the match on Sunday. Anyone under 16 will have free entry and all the children in the school are being given tickets and entry into a free prize draw!
Congratulations to all of the boys and girls who won awards for Student of the Month and Hand-writer of the
Month for September. A great start to the school year!! Tús maith, leath na h-oibre!!
Monthly Motto: "Spread a little happiness!!"
As we are beginning our new school year we wanted to take this opportunity to remind all the boys and girls and their parents of the importance of Healthy Eating. We have a Healthy Eating Policy in Scoil Ursula and always try to promote a healthy diet. Please take a few minutes to familiarise yourself with our Healthy Eating Policy and have a look at some of the advice in the leaflet below from Safe Food.
It's only with the help and support of parents and families that we'll be able to successfully implement our Healthy Eating Policy in the school.
The principal, teachers and staff of Scoil Ursula want to wish all of the boys an girls a hearty welcome back to school! We hope you have a fantastic year with us and you learn lots and make new friends too!
Thanks to all of the parents and families of the children of the school for all of your continued support of Scoil Ursula!
Congratulations to Olwyn Harrison Quinlan in Third Class who was highly commended for her entry in the Fleadh Art Competition held recently. The theme of the competition was Sligo and the Fleadh. Olwyn received her prize and certificate on Tuesday afternoon in the Sligo Education Centre. Well Done, Olwyn!
