Electricity Safety visit

An E.S.B. representative, Bryan Crowley, came to our school last week to talk to the children about safety issues regarding electrical wires, sockets, safety on the farm etc.. Bryan visited all classes from juniors to 6th during the day. It is very important that children are made aware of the dangers around electricity and we are very grateful to Bryan, who is a parent in our school, for giving us these very informative talks.

Past pupils visit with All Ireland Trophies

Eimear Scally, Laura Cleary and John Cleary visited Ovens N.S. last Friday with the All Ireland Senior and Minor Cups.  Eimear played with the Cork Seniors, Laura played with and captained the minors while John Cleary managed the minor team. The girls spoke firstly to the 2nd -6th classes in the hall and afterwards to the juniors, seniors and first classes. Afterwards they signed autograph books, jerseys etc… and most importantly, from the children’s point of view, they gave homework off for Monday night! Eimear and Laura are a credit to their families, club and parish and they are great role models to all the children. We are all very proud of them in Ovens N.S.
