Claremorris Credit Union

Posted by Joseph On February - 23 - 2015

We participate in our local Credit Union competitions and events. They are great fun.
Credit Union Quiz

We participated in the Claremorris Credit Union Quiz.  We entered two teams, an A team and a B team. On the A team were Conor Lydon, Evan Flynn, Orlaith Heaney and Amy Hession. On the B team were Ellen O’Conor, Jamie Hession, Megan Commins and Clíona Mc Greal. There were ten rounds made up of six questions for both teams but team B got two extra rounds. Team B came joint third with a score of fifty two. We had to compete in a three question tie-breaker with Gaelscoil de Búrca. We got all three correct and came third. The teams that came second and first got fifty three and fifty four points. We really enjoyed the experience and were proud of our accomplishment.

Credit Union Savings Card

The Credit Union visits our school twice a month. We have plastic savings cards with which we can lodge money into our accounts. Ciaran Sweeney and Miriam Duffy help us with our savings accounts.

Credit Union Savings Card

Miriam first visited to tell us about the savings card. We give her our money and then she scans our card. When she is finished the total amount of money is written on the card. We can bring our cards to our local Credit Union and we can take our money off it.

This is the computer that scans our cards.

Credit Union Art Competition

Every year we also enter the Credit Union art competition. We enter three different age groups.  It is good fun and you can meet new people at the prize giving ceremony.

Football Training Video

Posted by Joseph On December - 15 - 2014

We play football on the pitch when it’s dry.  Earlier this year we trained with Eugene Lavin. He used to play Gaelic football with Mayo. We had lots of fun and learned about different skills. Eugene taught us how to use our weak side just as well as our strong side. We played matches as well as training. All of us are looking forward to the Mini-sevens, McCarthan Cup, Heaney Shield and the Cumann na mBunscol competitions. We have improved a lot and have lots of fun playing football.

Judges’ comments on our website.

Posted by Grace On May - 2 - 2014

2014 Winner - Best School Website.Here are the judges’ comments on why we won Best School Website:

According to the judges a school website is a window into the life of that school.  This website is not a static brochure but captures vividly the rich variety of activities taking place in the School. The site is based on a blog but utilises a range of tools ranging from RSS to Twitter and Facebook.  

Events from every class are represented in pictures, text and videos.  Individual student’s work is also in evidence throughout – some uploaded by themselves.  Parents are accommodated not only through newsletters and Google calendars, but have an online service for school bus, book rental and other payments.  This site demonstrates how comprehensive a school website can be.  What makes this one extra special is the fact that this school is only a 2-teacher school.

Judges: Pat Seaver, Director of Blackrock Education Centre; Colin Meagle, Trilabyrinth; Declan Tuite, DCU - School of Communications.
