Wacky Walk 2018

Just a few little snaps from our very successful Wacky walk. Well done to everyone who completed the 5 km circuit, some in fancy dress! Thank you to everybody who supported the event and our wonderful enthusiastic fundraising committee who organised it all.
I hope now that you have all had a taste of the beautiful Cross lake loop, you might be inspired to join the Parkrun which takes place every Saturday morning at 9.30am.

Health and fitness announcement from the North Pole – Fógra sláinte ón bPol Thuaidh


As part of a new health and fitness programme for the reindeers, Santa has requested that, this year, children would leave out special reindeer food for the reindeers on Christmas Eve. This food is, of course, highly magical but, in this instance, it is also very healthy. It forms part of the new special healthy diet for reindeers in the North Pole who, unfortunately, have not been eating so healthily in recent months. So, management in the North Pole suggest very strongly that everyone should leave out at least one sachet of this special reindeer food to help the reindeer have enough energy for their arduous journey around the whole world.

SN an Inbhir, has been specially chosen as one of the few schools in the country who can supply this food, because of its track record with keeping fit and healthy eating. Because we are currently working so enthusiastically towards our third Active Schools flag, we have been deemed worthy of this great honour!

If you would like to join our campaign to keep the reindeers fit and healthy for their big night, please buy at least one packet. They are for sale in local shops, through the school at only €3 each. Mail orders can be placed by cheque, credit card or chimney post (+P&P) to SN an Inbhir, Barr na Trá, Béal an Athá, Co. Mhaigheo, Ireland or by phone to +353 (0)97 84532.

Carols For Crumlin

About 2 weeks ago we did something called “Carols For Crumlin”. Our Ladys Secondary School called a lot of Primary schools togther to sing Christmas carols for a childrens hostpital in Dublin. It is called “Crumlin Childrens Hostpital”.

Andy Moran, the captain of the Mayo football team, was also there. Lots of people got Santa hats signed by him.

We did 3 songs, Jingle Bells, Come Oh Ye Faithful and O Holy Night. We raised €3,106.11!!! Lots of people showed up. I am very proud.

Our Lady’s Secondary school choir and all the national schools in Erris did Carols for Crumlin. We had two practices in the school and in the Broadhaven Bay Hotel.

In the first practice we sang the songs we sang ‘O-Holy Night’, ‘O-come all ye faithful’, and ‘Jingle bells’. In the second practice we got into our spots so we would know where we were on the night.

Then it was the day we did the choir. First we sang ‘Jingle Bells’ and went back into the Disco. We had Crisps, Sweets and a Drink and waited for out time to sing. We also got a picture with with Andy Moran, He is a football player for Mayo and we got santa hats and he signed them as well.

We waited for our turn and went onto the stage. We sang ‘O holy night’ and ‘Come all ye faithful’. They raised €3,106.11. I really had a good time doing it.

Fr.Mike’s Bike Hike

Fr Micheal and his camera man Dean came to visit us today. He wanted to do a video of us because he is cycling from Inver to Dublin. He is raising money for all the sick people and children in India. He spoke a little bit about St Patrick. He had a funny wig on him and everybody was laughing about it. Shannon , Róisín and Hannah are cousins with Fr Micheal. They had a picture with him. Everybody had a photo taken with him. We all had fun. We hope he gets on well.

On Monday Barbara came to visit us. She showed us her medal and her t shirt. She got a medal because she completed the marathon. Hundereds of people entered the marathon. Barbara gave us some sweets. Five of the people stopped but two collapsed. It was very hot. She had to run up hills. She said it was very hard. When she was nearly at the finish line she grabbed Lucy and Eve and ran over to the finish line with them. We are very proud of Barbara!
