HALLOWEEN DRESS UP DAY
The school organised a Halloween Dress Up Day before the midterm break. Prizes were on offer for the best homemade costume in each classroom. Well done to all the children who put so much time and effort into making the costumes. Choosing winners from amongst the fabulous creations was indeed a very difficult task. Junior Infant Charlie Sheehan as Harry Potter , James O'Connor as a pirate from Third Class and Fifth class student Steven Harris as the Scarecrow on Duty were very worthy winners.
Choir practice will take place on Thursday 7th November at 8pm in St Joseph's Church,
CORK GAA CLUBS DRAW
Congratulations to Joanne Kiely on winning a €100 voucher in the recent County Board Draw. Club officers are very grateful for the very generous response to the recent draw promotion. Club membership in the draw has risen by 16% over last year. The club receives 45% of each ticket sold. This is the main source of income for the day to day costs in running the club as well as financing the club's various development projects. Much appreciation also goes to the supporters who gave a donation to the club instead of taking part in the draw. There are large cash prizes or cars on offer each month as well as loads of other cash prizes, holidays, weekend breaks and valuable vouchers. The monthly draw takes place on the last Thursday of each month with results published in the Irish Examiner and are also available on www.corkgaadraw.ie
Well done to local girl Karen Field for her part in helping Newmarket to victory in the Cork County Junior Ladies Football Championship in Ballincollig on Sunday. The Newmarket girls defeated fancied city side Douglas in the final on a score-line of Newmarket 2.13, Douglas 2.03 to claim a league and championship double.
Congratulations also to Deirdre O'Reilly who was part of the Milford team that won the AIB Munster Senior Camogie Club Championship Final at Lattin-Cullen on Saturday defeating Granagh/Ballingarry of Limerick by 0-14 to 0-4 to advance to the All Ireland semi-final.
