Following the completion of our 3G pitch last week we’re delighted to welcome David Hughes @garrymoregaa for training on Tuesdays. All pupils will benefit from a GAA training programme in the coming weeks with inter-school competitions expected to resume in March.

We have had a great 6 weeks of handball here in Gortskehy, led by Tim Foley of Tourmakeady Handball Club.
Handball is an all inclusive sport, where anyone of any ability can play. It incorporates lots of our fundamental movement skills, such as catching, throwing, side stepping, running, balance and striking with the hand. It also enables children to develop other skills such as hand-eye coordination and concentration.
We were very lucky as we got to go to Ballinrobe Handball Alley to see a handball match. We also got to play in a 40×20 alley. It was a wonderful experience for the children to see a real alley and have the opportunity to play there.
We would like to thank Tim Foley for being so generous with his time over the past few weeks and giving the children the opportunity to try a new sport.
We went on our school tour last week. We went to Horizon in Westport. It was a very active school tour. We took part in lots of activities including archery, laser world, a blindfold walk, trampolining, aeroball, and we even had a go on the bouncing castle! It was lots of fun and we had a great day together!
