Active School Flag

Well done to the 6th class boys and girls teams who qualified for the finals of the 5 a side soccer in Turners Cross.

Both teams played exceptionally well and topped their groups. It is a huge achievement to get the opportunity to play in Turners Cross representing their school.

On Wednesday the 26th of November the girls went to a mini 7’s competition in Carrignavar. We went on the bus. The journey was about 30 minutes long. When we got there we went into the dressing rooms and waited for the other teams to arrive. Our first match was against Brooklodge which we won by a lot. Then we had some lunch while we waited to play the next team. Our next match was against Carrignavar. We felt we at quite a disadvantage playing the home team but we played marvellously and only let in a point due to Grainne’s brilliant saves. We played really well and won the game. We then found out that we had gotten to the final and we were delighted. We found out that we were playing Glounthaune. We knew this game would be tough but we still tried our best. It was hard knowing that Glounthaune had won a Sciath Na Scoil final only a couple of weeks ago. There were lots of goals and points scored and the margin wasn’t big between us. Unfortunately in the end we lost but really enjoyed the game. At the end we took a picture together. We all went back on the bus really happy. When we got back our teacher gave us Jaffa cakes. We wish Glounthaune luck in their final and hope they win. We really enjoyed playing and definitely would do it again.

Scoil Inse Rátha camogie and hurling teams both did the school proud at the Parish Cup in Caherlag. They both gave gallant displays on the field and never gave up. Both teams were also commended for their sportsmanship as well as their good behaviour. Thanks to Niall for a great day that was very well organised.

Yesterday was our first day of the much anticipated Active Week. We were all very excited about having our first hoolahoopathon and it was a huge success. We played lots of games together and we had a competition to see who could hoolahoop for the longest time. We were also very busy before home time as we were learning how to line dance. Below are a few pictures of our active day and we can’t wait to take part in all the fun activities to come during the week.

Junior Infants had lots of fun and games playing with the parachute on our active day.

An active yard has been set up for junior and senior infants. On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays they take part in activities during breaktime which include hoolahooping, skipping and ball activities. Our active yard is a huge success and encourages all children to have fun

 and get active!

Pupils from 3rd, 5th and 6th were delighted to train  with Cork Ladies Football trainer, Eamonn Ryan last month.

He gave the children great advice on staying fit, healthy and playing sport.

4th class have been working really hard at gymnastics and flexibility over the past few weeks. They are up to level 6 in gymnastics. Have a look at what they can do!

The girls from Rang 2 and 3 gave a fantastic display of camogie at the Indoor Camogie

blitz in Watergrasshill, on Tuesday the 5th  of February.


Our first game was against Kilworth National School, we started off the day with a

1-0 win, thanks to a great goal from Kate Cogan and super defending from Rachel Hayes

Amelie Carry Wakefield and Deborah Tamar Doe.


Our next game was against Gaelscoil Uí Drisceoil. Gráinne Guest and Anu Agoro worked very hard in the back line which led to great goals from Rachel Hayes, Kate Cogan,

Rachel Adewole and two great goals from Andrea Agbebaku.


The girls gave a massive effort to come out with

2-1 win against New Inn after going in at half time a goal down. Trojan work from

Megan Fleming and Emma Daly in the second half led to two superb goals from Rachel

Adewole and Leah Kelleher.


Our final and toughest game was against the home side Watergrasshill. They started

well with an early goal and were leading at half time.  Gráinne Guest gave a great performance around the middle of the field and Kate Cogan got an early goal in the second half to draw the teams level. Andrea Agbebaku scored a great goal half way through the

second half, but unfortunately Watergrasshill got a last minute goal to tie the teams

once again.


All in all we had a great day and the girls did Scoil Inse Rátha proud with a fantastic performance.
