Habitat for Humanity 6 a-side Hockey Tournament

Six Taney teams comprising of both boys and girls from 4th Class took part in the annual Habitat for Humanity Fundraising 6 a-side hockey tournament on Tuesday 4th February in Wesley College.  It was a fantastic afternoon, with plenty of great hockey played and oodles of fun.  All teams did very well in their groups.  One of the Taney teams made it to the final against Whitechurch having beaten Kill of the Grange in the Semi- final.  They played extremely well and it was a great, and very close game, but were unfortunately defeated by just one goal.  It was great to see such fantastic school spirit with all the Taney teams staying around to cheer them on in both the semi final and final.

Fourth Class Tour to the National Sports Campus and Aquatic Centre

This year, the two fourth classes went to the Aquatic Centre and the Sports Arena on the school tour.

The children spent the first half of the day exploring the water slides, lazy river and numerous pool facilities. After a short break they were split into two groups and taught by a professional Olympian how to carry out different moves and skills on a trampoline.

They then carried out different balancing and strength activites such as walking across narrow surfaces and hanging on to a high bar for an extended period of time.

The children also watched some of the junior Irish team train which was incredible and very inspiring.

Every child came home with good reports and exhausted from their busy day. It was a brilliant way to end a fantastic year.
