An accident free summer, among our students Buíochas le Dia -- Thanks be to God. We sincerely wish our rang VI pupils of last year the very best and God's blessings upon them in their chosen secondary school. To all of our new pupils -- Junior Infants and others that have join our ranks in the previous September to whom we give a massive céad míle fáilte -- Welcome. We hope all will have a happy year of some work.
Annual Book Fair
Our annual Book Fair will take place this year from the 26th to Friday the 30th of November 2012. We receive a large percentage of the money raised at the the Book Fair in the form of books for our classroom libraries. All children are encouraged to read with their parents.
Our boys football team will be striving to claim the Clare Primary School Division 1 football title for a record fourth time in a row this autumn. We all wish them luck.
Doora Barefield Under 12's Girls
Our girls had tremendous success over the summer months winning the league against Clooney/Quin and the Championship playing West Clare Gaels. They also represented Clare in the Community Games Munster Finals in UL. CBS pupils on three teams were Amy Lenihan, Chloe Towey, Laura McDonald and last, but not least, Áine Moloney.
Once again we are delighted to have Gerry Fox back with us for 2012 for coaching hurling and Gaelic Football. This is Gerry's 11th year with us now. His friendly and helpful approach is appreciated by all the pupils and staff in mBraithre Cristoí Innis. The strength of Gaelic games in Clare is holding together because of people like Gerry. Fada beo an GAA.
