O’ Duffy Cup Visits

There was great excitement around the school on Friday when Kilkenny camogie star Claire Phelan brought the O’ Duffy Cup to the school. Claire plays in the backs and was on the Kilkenny team that won the All-Ireland Final in September after a long 22 year wait. Well Done Claire. We hope we will be seeing this cup around the school more often over the next few years!


Visit from Dogs Trust

We were treated to a special visit this morning from Heather from Dogs Trust and her dog ‘Ted’. The purpose of Heather’s visit was to teach us how to be responsible dog owners and how to keep ourselves safe around dogs. We learned how to do the ‘X Factor’. This will help us to keep safe when around strange dogs. We were all presented with certificates and other goodies. Thanks Heather and Ted.

There was great excitement in Firoda School on Thursday 22nd December. Not only were the Christmas Holidays fast approaching but a very busy man took time out of his hectic schedule to pay us all a visit. We were chuffed to see Santa and delighted with the presents he gave us. More pictures to follow.
