February March 2018
What a hectic 2nd term it has been in Templederry NS from Grandparents Day to Book Fairs. From Sam Maguire visits to 5-a-side soccer. It certainly flew not giving us time to dwell on the bad weather!!!!
Preparations are advancing on a daily basis for our big concert in April. More details to follow in the coming weeks but we hope you will get behind our fundraising attempts as we endeavour to build a new Astro-turf playing area in the school.
On February 1st Fr. Teehan celebrated a Grandparents Day mass in the school. This mass continues to grow in popularity each year and fits in perfectly into the family theme during Catholic Schools Week. The children performed some Irish music and dance pieces to entertain the crowd and we all enjoyed having tea and scone afterwards. Check out the gallery area of the website for more images.
Hot on the heels of Grandparents Day was Pancake/Shrove Tuesday. We always love this “Indulgence Day” in the school as it marks the beginning of Lent. this year was no different as children engaged in feverish pancake consumption throughout the school!
Sam Maguire visit
We would like to thank former pupil and Templederry GAA player for taking time out of his job in Dublin to come visit us with the Sam Maguire trophy to Templederry. the children were amazed with the size and weight of the cup and were delighted to have their picture taken with it.
The Scholastic Book fair was a great success again this year providing the children with an invaluable opportunity to read and explore some of the latest and most popular books available at the moment. Thanks also to the parents who came on the parents evening to check out what was on offer. This years event was very successful with the school receiving just over €1000 worth of free books for the school library. We are really looking forward to reading these in the near future.
5-a-side soccer teams
Congratulations to both our boys and girls soccer teams who recently took part in the Spar FAI 5-a-side soccer events in 2 Mile Borris. Both teams performed really well and while neither progressed they represented their school exceptionally well. the girls won 2 matches and the boys just lost out on making the county finals on score difference. We really enjoyed the day and are looking forward to next year already.
