Sciath na Scol- Hurling

Sciath na Scol

Sciath na Scol look to promote the skills of hurling through non competitive matches. These style games are hugely beneficial to each child in developing their skills and enjoyment of the game.

After a very successful year with football we now turn to hurling.

We began our hurling season playing a home match against Rathcormac. On what turned out to be a wet day, the match continued on with the help of Grenagh GAA and the use of the new pitch. We would like to extend our thanks to the club for all their help in making our Sciath na Scol success possible. Our girls came out with a strong win on the day. Our boys drew in what was a very strongly contested game! Maith Sibh! A special thanks to the teachers and support staff who help in the lead up to these games especially those involved in training.


Boys are girls from 3rd class competing in the Indoor hurling games held in Mallow. The day was greatly enjoyed by all.

Sport- Basketball

4th class have been training hard all year practicing and learning new basketball skills. Mr Keoghan and Ms Buckley led the way during their PE time weekly. The class went on to represent our school in a mixed level Inter schools blitz held in the Mardyke area in February ’20. A great day was had by all with pupils competing in several matches. The children are looking forward to next year’s event already!

Chess Club

Chess club was a huge success again this year! A big thank you to Ms Walsh, Mr Keoghan and Ms Kavanagh for all their dedication in developing this skill. The lunch time practice really paid off! Well done to the children for all the enthusiasm and interest they showed in learning how to play chess and developing the many skill associated with this.

A school chess tournament was held in February ’20 in the Ballincollig Gaelscoil. Children from the club competed in all levels. The children performed excellently during the day and were a credit to the school.

Sport- Football

3rd Class Girls Indoor football “pella” held in Mallow December ’19.


3rd Class Boys indoor football held in Donoghmore December ’19.

Indoor football promotes the basic skills of football with a twist! There is a large net on the wall and the aim is to hand pass or kick into the net to score. The children really enjoy this blitz every year.
