Well done to both our girls and boys team who took part in the FAI Primary Schools blitz in Clonakilty Sports astro recently. Both teams finished second in their respective groups with some great team performances. Unfortunately it was only the first placed teams that progressed through to the next round, but both teams can hold their heads high and be very proud of what they achieved. Thanks to Mike Doolan and JJ Hurley from Drinagh Rangers who helped out with coaching wit teams.
For St Patricks weekend, all the children performed songs, dances and musical entertainment for each other to celebrate our unique Irish culture. All the children took part in the Siege of Ennis dance after. The school were delighted to support Dunmanway Comhaltas by having a non uniform day.
The 6 week Lunch time leagues came to a finish on Friday with Arsenal and Manchester United competing in the Final. In an exciting game watched by all the school Arsenal came out on top. Well done to all the children involved.

We are delighted to have Eoin Daly from Clann na nGael GAA Club, in with us over the coming weeks. He will be delivering Gaelic football coaching to all the children in the School every Wednesday.
Drinagh NS were delighted to purchase ten new laptops recently from Drinagh Retail. These laptops will be a big asset to the School as we enter into a 3 year Robotics programme and will no doubt support a range of learning opportunities for the children.
Dave Brooks from An Taisce came to visit us to speak to all the children about what they have done to support Biodiversity in our school and community. A successful visit would help us towards our 5th green flag. Dave was very impressed by all their knowledge and initiatives.
Thanks to everyone who supported us and contributed to the 300 stickers needed from Aldi and helped us complete our first poster. We are beginning to collect for a second poster, so keep on sending in those stickers.
