Bree Sports Day May 20th 2015

Posted on May 27th, 2015 in Activities,Latest News,Ms. English,Sport by Mrs. English

Bree Sports 2015


The mercy girls were in top form at the Bree sports yesterday, bringing home a huge haul of medals.  Between them the girls managed to win eleven gold medals, one silver and one bronze.  Each of the athletes put in tremendous performances and did their school proud.  First up to win a medal was Tara Cullinane who won bronze in the girls U12 high jump.  Not to be out done Roisin O Reilly did one better and managed to win a silver medal in the girls U14 high jump.  We were then onto the sprint finals where Ailbhe White powered home to claim victory in the U11 girls 100m.  There were some nervous faces on the start line when Sabia Doyle appeared  and they were right to be, as she also whizzed on home to win the girls U12 100m in style. Danika Gilshinan was in flying form also in the girls u14  400m and lead the field home  capturing a gold medal for herself.   Although  Sinead O Reilly wasn’t in the  medals she did manage a personal best in the girls U11 long jump.  Ellie Devereux, Jamie Benson, Annoushka Nolan and Abbie Bolger put in brave performances in their races and well done girls.

The last event of the day were the hotly contested relay races.  Amber Henderick, Sinead O Reilly, Isabella Gainford and Ailbhe White managed to outclass twenty four other teams and claim victory in the girls U10 relay.  Next up were the girls U12 relay team consisting of Nadia Moussatti, Danika Gilshinan, Tara Cullinane and Sabia Doyle.  Could the Mercy girls do a double? It had never been done before.  Not only did they do the double but they did it in style with metres to spare on the home straight.

The path to the boot of the car to claim your medal was well worn by the Mercy Girls.  A huge thank you to all the parents that travelled on the day and helped out by giving lifts or organising the girls into their races.  Thank you to Senan O Reilly, Kevin White, Ann Gilshinan, Nadias mum, Ellies dad, Annoushkas parents and little sister, and to Ambers parents who travelled up just in time to see Amber claim victory in the relay race.  The girls went home with a little sunburn on their faces but with a lot of fantastic memories.  Watch out Bree 2016 our boys will be in action!

Well done Girls.

Christmas Play Senior Infants – Ms Englishs Class

Posted on November 22nd, 2011 in Ms. English by Mrs. English  Tagged

Watch out Broadway here we come!  This week we have started practicing for our Christmas play.  It is a play based on the story of the birth of Jesus.  Everyone has at least one line to say as well as lots of songs to sing.  The children are busy practicing their lines at home every night.  Our performance will take place just before the Christmas holidays, so keep your diary free!  A note will be sent home to all the parents nearer the time letting them know the time and date.

A visit to the Presidents House

Posted on October 18th, 2011 in Ms. English by Mrs. English  Tagged

Today we learned all about what it is like to be the President of Ireland.  We took a virtual tour of Áras an Úchtaráin on the interactive whiteboard.  Did you know that the President Mary McAlesse gets up at eight o clock every morning?  The President also keeps two dogs one called Homer and the other called Lucy!

We talked about the Presidential elections that will take place on the 27th of October and discussed the names of all the candidates going forward for the elections.  The girls all wanted a girl president and surprise surprise the boys all wanted a boy president. 

Who is going to win?

We have been busy over the past week making our special people booklets.  Everyone drew a picture of six people who are special in their lives.  Each child then presented their book to the rest of the class.  We also brought in photographs of our special people and we have them displayed in our classroom.

Strawberries – Yummy!

Posted on March 25th, 2010 in Ms. English by Mrs. English  Tagged

Did you know that we planted strawberry plants in our class last week?  We loved getting our hands dirty as we fist had to put peatmoss in our pots and then we put two stawberry plants in the pot and pressed down really hard.  We hope to have strawberries in the summer.  We will know that the strawberries are on their way after we spot blooms coming on the plants.  We brought home our strawberry plants on Thursday 25th March and we must remember to water them every second day and also to place them near a window as they need plenty of sunlight.  Yummy yummy in my tummy! 100_1676

MsEnglish& Ms Cooneys class were busy on Tuesday 16th February.  We had great fun making pancakes down in the rainbow room.  These were magic pancakes as they disappeared so quickly.

We also did very well in the competition to see how much rubbish we could bring home in our lunch boxes on that day.  Aoife won a car bin for her efforts.
