GAA Girls Senior Team
Commiserations to all players and staff involved with the SETNS senior GAA girls who played their socks off at this week’s semi-final match. We’re very proud of their achievements in the Fingal League. We hope that they will bounce back with a little help from the local pizza parlour!
Date for the Senior Boys GAA final in Parnell Park:Tuesday 15th May at 11 o’clock.
Congratulations to our Senior Boys GAA team on reaching the Fingal League final which will be played on Tuesday 15th May at 11am. We will arrange for 3rd to 6th class pupils to travel by bus to support the team. While all other supporters (parents/guardians) must make their own travel arrangements,we hope that as many of you as possible will be there to support the boys on the day. If you wish to bring along younger siblings please note that usual procedures for children leaving school early with a parent/guardian will apply.
Congratulations to all 50 pupils who took part in the recent Fingal Athletics League,which finished in Morton Stadium (Santry) on 1/5/12. Thanks to all the teachers for their assistance and to all the parents who helped with supervision on the day.
