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!!
