On Monday 20th June we had our annual sports day. Children took part in several activities including archery, taekwondo, zumba, tug-o-war & the traditional team competitions. They were presented with medals on the day and there was a special surprise visit from the ice-cream van. Sincere thanks to the parents council for their sponsorship of the event.

The 3rd & 4th class 'Rearing Macy for Milford' fundraiser culminated in a trip to O'Donovan's Mart in Tipperary on Friday 27th May. The day was thoroughly enjoyed by all children and was a huge success. Thanks to Hynan's Bus for providing transport, to local cattle haulier Mike Butler & to Supermac's for sponsoring ice-creams. A special mention to the O'Donovan family for their warm welcome & generous contribution of €200 towards the fundraiser along with goodie bags for the children. There was a very well supported school gate collection and bucket collection at the mart. These donations on top of the fantastic selling price of €1710 allowed us to present Milford Hospice with a cheque for €3230.61. I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone involved but in particular the 28 children in 3rd & 4th class for their dedication to the fundraiser. Mr. Ryan.      See some more photos in the gallery.
