The staff and pupils of Scoil Eoin have been busy celebrating European Week of Sport and Physical Activity (Sept. 22nd-30th). Different classes have partaken in a wide variety of physical activities from Go Noodle exercises to 10 @ 10 and Joe Wicks live school workouts. The whole participated in the "Run Around Europe" challenge. Each class had to run laps of the school yard each day. 1 lap = 74m. The combined distance of each class was calculated at the end of the week and this distance traveled was represented on a map of Europe. Ask your child how far they reached in Europe!
Thursday September 27th was "National Fitness Day". A Teacher versus pupils Bean Bag Race was held in the school yard to mark the day. The pupils were victorious in this test of speed and skill! Well done to all involved and in particular to the Active School's Committee who continue to bring new and innovative physical challenges to Scoil Eoin!
Photos of the Teachers Versus Pupils Bean Bag Race are available to view in the Photo Gallery. Go to the News and Events Tab on the top of this page and click into Active School's Gallery to take a look at this epic battle!

We would like to extend a special welcome to our new Junior Infant pupils and new students who have joined us from other schools. We hope that you all had a great summer and are ready for all the learning and academic adventures in the year ahead.

Is iomaí cúis ceiliúradh atá ag Scoil Eoin le déanaí. Bhuamar an comórtas don scoil is fearr sa tionscanamh Age of Revolutions. Ghnóthaigh an scoil an séú brat glas ar an téama Global Citizenship Litter & Waste. Fuaireamar Award of Excellence do STEM, (science, technology engineering & maths).Ach ba é an duais ba mhó a bhí á cheiliúradh againn inné ná an Gaelbhratach. Tá sé ar folúin go bródúil taobh amuigh den scoil anois. Bronnadh an Gaelbhratach ar Scoil Eoin mar thoradh ar an obair leanúnach atá á dhéanamh sa scoil ar son na Gaeilge.
Bhí gliondar chroí orainn go raibh iar imreoir iománaíochta agus peile sinsear Chorcaí, Seán Óg Ó hAilpín sásta teacht mar aoí speisialta chun an Gaelbhratach a ardú. Is laoch spóirt Chorcaí é agus is Gaeilgeoir den scoth é chomh maith.
Chuir an Club Cheoil fáilte ceolmhar roimh gach duine ag teacht isteach. Bhí na horáidí againn san halla. Ansin sheinn an banna scoile nuair a bhíomar ag dul amach ar an gclós chun an brat a ardú. Nuair a bhí sé ardaithe ag Seán Óg chanamar Amhrán na bhFiann.
Thug Seán Óg spreagadh agus ionsparáid dúinn. Mhol sé do na daltaí a ndícheall a dhéanamh pé rud a bhíonn idir lámha acu. Ní thagann torthaí maith gan obair dian. Is fiú go mór cloí le rud agus gan éirí as. Cuir sé i gcuimhne dóibh cé chomh tabhachtach is atá ár bhféiniúlacht Gaeilge idir teanga, culture agus sport. Ba choir dúinn a bheith bródúil as ár dtír féin.
D’fhan Seán Óg linn don tráthnóna agus rinne sé seisiún traenála le rang a ceathair. Bhain siad an-taitneamh go deo as. Nach orthu a bhí an t-ádh, bheith ag tógáil pocanna saor ar Sheán Óg Ó hAilpín!
The Scoil Eoin Community had a memorable day yesterday, June 20th when Seán Óg Ó hAilpín, one of Cork’s greatest ever sportsmen and a fluent Irish speaker visited us to raise our Gaelbhratach. We achieved this award for our work in the promotion and improvement in spoken Irish in our school and community.
In his inspiring speech Seán Óg spoke of the importance of identity and how our native language and rich culture is so valuable and something to take pride in. He encouraged the pupils to persevere, work hard at whatever they do and ‘nail their colours to the mast’ rather than give in easily.
Fourth class had the unforgettable experience of a training session in the school field with Seán Óg after the official flag raising ceremony. They will be able to tell everyone that they got an opportunity to take shots on Seán Óg!
All at Scoil Eoin are so grateful to Seán Óg for being so generous with his time and expertise.
Excitement reigned supreme in Scoil Eoin last Friday, when members of the Skibbereen Heritage Centre visited as part of the 'West Cork: Stories of the Revolution" project. Pupils from 4th & 6th classes undertook projects on their family heritage during the years 1916 - 1923. The overall aim of the project is to raise awareness of the 1916-1923 revolutionary period among primary school students by encouraging them to speak to their parents, grandparents, other relations or neighbours and to record their stories relating to the period. In another generation, this information may well be lost!
Mayor Declan Hurley surprised the children by unexpectantly arriving with a cheque for €400! The pupils were thrilled to have been awarded 1st place in the competition and were quite star struck by the dashing Mayor!
The surprises didn't finish there though, as the overall winning pupil prize was awarded to 6th class pupil - Kevin Dart O' Flynn. Kevin also scooped a €400 cheque for his winning project!
Well done to everyone who participated and to all the class teachers involved!

Congratulations to our Girl's Relay Squad who won the Under 11's Relay Race in The Cork City Sports today (June 1st). A huge congratulations to every child who represented Scoil Eoin today. We are proud of you all and we hope that you will continue to develop your athletics abilities in the years to come.
Ann Mc Seoin, who gives horticulture workshops to all classes in the school, along with ranganna a trí agus a ceathair applied for an invitation to visit the gardens in the Áras. They were successful and a group of 50 pupils from ranganna 3, 4 agus 5 made a trip on May 18th. They were treated to refreshments followed by a guided tour of the gardens.
Undoubtedly the highlight of the visit was the surprise welcome into Áras an Uachtaráín by President Higgins and his wife Sabina. The President greeted each of the pupils individually.
Later they also enjoyed the African Plains Adventure at Dublin Zoo. It is without question a day that they will always remember.

Fifth and sixth class pupils enjoyed the experience of debating during the year thanks to mentoring and coaching by Bn. Uí Mhurchú. A team from Rang a 6 were victorious in 2 rounds to reach the semi-final at which they debated to a high standard. Well done to all involved.
Ta nuacht iontach againn! Fuaireamar an Ghaelbhratach. Ta bród orainn. Bhí gach rang ag obair go dian. Bhi siad ag déanamh postaeir, ag scríobh leabhair beaga, ag foghlaim amhráin agus dánta agus ag labhairt Gaeilge go minic.
Is sinne an coiste. Bhí cruinniú againn gach mhí. Chrochamar rudaí ar an mBord Gaeilge. Tá Bernard Ó Cuimín (athair Ruby agus Leila) agus Olga Mac an tSaoi (máthair Seán, Kate agus Méabh) ar an gCoiste freisin.
Go raibh maith agaibh, a mhúinteoirí agus a pháistí a bhí ag obair ar an nGaeilge. Táimid buíoch as na tuismitheoirí freisin.
Táimid ag dul i bhfeabhas. Bígí ag labhairt Gaeilge go minic.
Is fearr Gaeilge briste ná Béarla cliste.
Scoil Eoin recently received its sixth Green Flag at a ceremony in The Radisson Blu Hotel Little Island. Scoil Eoin remains committed to upholding the core values of the Green School ethos and strives on a daily basis to be mindful of the environmental imapct that we as individuals have on the world.
Pictured above is a group of students from Scoil Eoin who attended a recent ceremony hosted by MSD in Brinny. At the ceremony a cheque for over €26,000 was presented to the local branch of the Irish Cancer Society. The money was raised through a combination of activities that took place to mark Daffodil Day, which included a number of Brinny employees visiting 11 primary schools in the locality, including Scoil Eoin, to raise awareness of the Irish Cancer Society and gather donations.
The pupils of 3rd class joined forces with avid gardening enthusiast Emmet O' Brien to work on revitilising the school garden. Emmet demonstrated the skills needed to prep an area such as clearing, weeding and aerating the soil with tools such as hoes and trowels. The children then got down to work planting pre-sprouted potatoes.
As you are aware, we recently held a Junk Art Competition, where children created items out of junk materials.
We had a fantastic response and the results were brilliant! The creativity and artwork were wonderful to see.
Thank you and well done to all who participated!
