GAA DECEASED MEMBERS MASS

The annual Deceased Members Mass will be held in Tattyreagh GAC tomorrow night at 7.30pm. As always, the school will provide a choir for the Mass and we ask for as many pupils as possible (P.4 – P.7) to attend wearing their school uniform.

DITCH THE DARK DAY

This Friday is a ‘Ditch the Dark Day’ when we encourage all our pupils to ditch their school uniform for bright colours. This is to highlight the importance of high visibility clothing during the dark autumnal and winter months. Pupils are encouraged to wear whatever high-visibility coats, tee-shirts, wigs etc – the brighter the better!!

CONGRATULATIONS BRANDON

A huge congratulations is extended to P.7 pupil Brandon Downey who triumphed in the Flahavans Cross-Country event in Ballygawley last Wednesday – a magnificent achievement which makes him very much the man to beat in Round 2 which takes place in Dungannon in December. P.6 pupil Alana Teague, despite conceding a year to her opposition, secured a top ten finish by coming in 8th place – another fantastic performance! Finally, well done to all our hardy participants who battled so gamely to finish on a very gruelling course – you did yourselves proud!!

GAELIC BLITZ

Good luck to our boys and girls who will participate in the Cumann na mBunscoil Blitz at Garvaghy on Thursday morning. Those selected will be issued with further details during the week.
