Four members of the local soccer club recently came to visit our school and show us the cup they one for Raheen FC. They came first in the Combined Counties Football League, Division 2. This is a massive achievement having beaten big clubs such as Mullingar and Athlone. They now hope to go on and become champions of Division 1. We wish them all the best and will definitely be cheering them on on the sidelines when the new league starts.

Our Gymnastics have concluded again for another year. Many thanks to Denis Donoghue and Sonya Ryan from Portlaoise Gymnastics Club.
The six week block has been worthwhile and the children have made fantastic progress in the Forward Roll, Backward Roll, Handstand, Cartwheel, Round Off, Front Walkover and Back Walkover.
We look forward to working together again in 2017/2018.
The pupils from 3rd to 6th are currently participating in a debating league. Each team consists of 4-5 pupils, and everyone is working really hard on their research and speeches in order to get to the next round. The standard has been incredibly high so far. Round 2 will start shortly, with the finals taking place in June. All of the children are growing in confidence and becoming very convincing public speakers. Keep it up and best of luck to everyone involved!
