Sunny Smiles at Parish Fête

posted in: School News | 0

The annual Taney Parish Fête took place on one of the sunniest days of the year and there were plenty of smiles all round as the children and parents tried their luck at the games, giggled at the clown, browsed the various stalls, listened to the band, and snacked on fresh strawberries. In keeping with tradition, the PTA was in charge of running  the tea and coffee stall; thanks to them and to the parents that volunteered to help on the other stalls. The event raised in excess of €20,000 so a great effort all round!

Our Irish Dancing Display was held on Thursday evening last week and the children from 1st to 6th classes gave us a great show of all the wonderful dances they have learned this year.  We had a special presentation at the end of the evening for Mrs. Meadhbh McEvoy who is retiring after 40 years teaching dancing here in Taney…..thank you Mrs. McEvoy!

Sports Day

Active School Week culminated with our annual Sports Day which took place in Marlay Park on Friday morning.  A big thank you to the dozens of parents and teachers who helped to organise and coordinate the event, and to Paul Finlay, Liam Neary, Nigel Macken and Manfred Davies who helped with set-up and transport.  We were lucky to have the bulk of the races take place in dry weather and sunshine.  The brave boys and girls of 3rd to 6th classes ran their relay races in a tropical downpour which was a wet end to an otherwise lovely day!!  Special thanks to all teachers and PTA members who helped with a very wet tidy up at the end of the day.


It’s that time of the year again!  This year we have 4 chicks between both 6th classes.  A few less than normal but these ones are a lively bunch and are already trying to escape from their box!  The chicks have been on a tour of the school to meet all the children.

This week Junior Infants have enjoyed the sunshine, playing games outside.  They are predicting and observing Science in Action…will it float or sink?  And…..big news…..the chicks have hatched and they came to visit us – they are so gorgeous!

Active School Week

Active School week took place last week, 28th May to 1st June.  Everyone was encouraged to wear their favourite active gear in order to take part fully in Active School Week.  Coaches from Olympian Gymnastics and Irish Ultimate Frisbee provided taster sessions for all classes throughout the week.  We also had 10@10 Movement Breaks, Active Diaries, County Colours Day, Whole School Macarena, Active Travel, Active Homework and much much more.

6th Class devised and guided their Junior Infant buddies round a circuit of 8 different bases!  All the more enjoyable in glorious sunshine!  6th class and Junior Infants also enjoyed 10@10 together during Active School Week.
