Mini 7’s County Finalists

Well done to our boys and girls on reaching the county finals of the Sciath na Scol this week. they had qualified last November by winning the local division and went to Newcestown to play the semi finals. Both boys and girls had great wins over Canovee N.S. to reach their finals. Unfortunately our boys lost out to Bantry and our girls to Clondrohid. A great day was had by the teams, parents who drove (thanks) and their trainers Kieran O’Sullivan and Eoghan Hyde.

National Spring Cleaning Day

On Thursday, 6th April, the whole school took part in “An Taisce’s National spring Clean” as part of Green Schools. Each class had a designated area around the school to clean. Luckily our school is already very clean thanks to the litter wardens. However, with such a big number of children picking up rubbish the school is now spotless. We also did a huge spring clean inside the school, with tables being bleached, blinds dusted and libraries being organised. Well done to everyone in school for taking part so eagerly.

Chess News

On Monday 3rd April last 16 pupils from Ovens travelled to Mallow to participate in a large chess competition made up of schools from all over County Cork. In total almost 200 pupils took part in a contest that was notable for its high level of quality and sportsmanship.

The pupils from Ovens N.S who took part represented the school proudly and enjoyed the experience of competing against players from various other schools. The level of success experienced also gives us plenty of confidence to build on for next year’s competition. We can take a lot of encouragement from the way the students performed both in terms of ability and attitude. Well done to all the children and to teachers, Seán O’Sullivan and Eithne Downey, who gave up their lunch times throughout the year to teach the children how to play chess and to practise their skills.

We are now looking forward to running our own school competition before the end of the school year.
