Hatching Chicks

6th class pupils in our school are eagerly awaiting developments with regard to our incubator. Five duck eggs and four chick eggs are in place. We believe that duck eggs take approximately 28 days to hatch while chick eggs take approximately 21 days.

Last year we successfully hatched two roosters named Chicken Little and Happy Feet. This is what they look like now.

Credit Union Team at All Ireland Quiz Final.

Well done to the U-13 Credit Union team who won the recent Chapter finals in Letterkenny recently. The winning team of – Eoin, Ruairí, Anthony and Shane qualified for the All Ireland Credit Union Quiz Final which was held in the RDS on Sunday April 1st.

The U-13 team put in a great performance in the All Ireland finals, finishing a most creditable 10th place. This was a great performance considering that 5,500 teams entered the competition with almost 25,000 participants.

In the local Letterkenny finals, the school U-11 team finished in second point, one point behind the winners. Well done to Caolan, Emma, Conor and Steve. 75 teams took part on the night. Well done to all.

Donegal Sports Star Success!

Well done to Master O Donnell on his recent success at the Donegal Sports Star Awards. At a function in the Silver Tassie hotel recently, he was awarded the prestigious Sports Teacher of the Year award in the Primary School section.
We were delighted to hear that our school was also nominated in the Best Primary Sport’s School category in the Donegal Sports Star Awards but were unsuccessful on the night. Nevertheless it was a great honour to have been considered and well done to all involved.

Well done to both the boys and the girls who competed in the Donegal Soccer Championships in Finn Park yesterday. The girls reached the semi final stage before bowing out to the eventual champions.
