Great Success at Tullamore Credit Union Quiz

Congratulations to both of our quiz teams who have carried on our great tradition at the Tullamore Credit Union Quiz on Wednesday 12th of February.

Our junior team made up of pupils from 3rd and 4th Classes won their competition against 18 other primary schools from the Tullamore area.  It was a wonderful achievement and we are all very proud of the pupils involved.

Our senior team made up of pupils from 5th and 6th Classes did really well also.  They came second in their competition and will now advance to the All-Ireland Final which takes place in Blanchardstown on Saturday March 7th.

Election Fever hits Geashill N.S.

Over the last few days the senior classes have been learning all about how elections work in Ireland.  Today they put all the learning into practice when everyone from 3rd to 6th Class went to the polls.  Five cartoon characters were the candidates and there were two seats to be filled.  Jerry (from Tom & Jerry) topped the poll and was elected on the first count.  On the fourth count Tweety was elected having reached the quota.  Lots of learning and some fun too.


Grandparents’ Day

We had a wonderful time celebrating Grandparents’ Day on Wednesday 29th January.  We welcomed a great number of grandparents from all over the country.  Our celebrations started with a prayer service in our school hall.  Then our grandparents visited their grandchildren in the classrooms.  To finish the day tea and coffee was served. Thanks to all the grandparents who visited.
