Stars of tomorrow

Our 2nd class pupils get to take part in a number of blitzes each year organised by Tipperary GDA Paudie Malone. They play in a football blitz in term 1 and 2 hurling blitzes in term 2 and 3. The children really look forward to these occasions and this was no different for their indoor hurling blitz in Nenagh College in March. thanks again to Paudie and the Ty's who refereed these games. The children taking part were all mixed up and gave the children an experience of playing with children they wouldn't normally get to play with. We look forward to the outdoor blitz taking place in the  Garda College in April.

Fantastic Experience - At the end of the day!!!!

We sent 3 teams to the FAI soccer this year - 1 girls and 2 boys. The girls were first up and they did brilliantly winning all their soccer games bar one. They lost out on progressing on score difference but they did their school proud. Some girls who wouldn't normally take part in games got a chance to taste team sport and it was a memorable occasion for all involved.

We also took 2 boys teams - a 6th class and a 5th class team. The 5th class team went to experience the game and the format for next year and their day will come again. Our 6th class team spurred on by the heartbreak of losing out in the dying moments last year, excelled on their return to the competition. They won all their games convincingly playing with all the confidence and panache of a team on a mission. 

They came up against an exceptional Cloughjordan team in the final and at half time the score was 2-1 in what was a great effort by both sides. The Cloughjordan pulled away to win 4-1 in the end but our lads were exceptional representatives for their school in victory and defeat wished their excellent opponents all the best in the finals.

Camogie is alive and well in Templederry!

We entered a schools camogie team this year and they took part in a blitz on Tuesday March 26th. The girls who started with 3 girls form 4th class played their hearts out finished in a 3 way off with 2 other schools. These girls have trained together for the last month and gelled really well as a team. Hopes were high going into the play off that the girls would do themselves justice again. Drawn in the first game, the girls played in brilliant sunshine in Templederry and outshone themselves with a great win. At time of writing the girls are awaiting to play their North Semi final in the coming days and hopes are high that the girls can do themselves proud once again.

Daily Mile

Since January classes in our school have been participating in the Daily Mile. Children from these classes walk, run, jog complete the Daily Mile challenge around our new astro turf pitch. Children have really bought into the concept with many anxious to up their step count on their Fit Bit watches. The beauty of the concept is that children can complete it at their won pace with their classmates in a fun and healthy manner. As well as helping the children to exercise and get fitter it also has the added benefit of helping them concentrate in class. Our Daily Mile is a highlight of our day and we feel it is unique as children and teachers exercise together.

This along with our participation in Schools Cross Country and Indoor Athletics makes sure our children experience a healthy and as option filled lifestyle as possible while attending Templederry NS.
