We have been collecting Aldi tokens for the last two years & we are delighted with the PE equipment sent to us from Aldi. Junior Infants made use of the tag rugby equipment for today's PE lesson.
The boys in Senior Infants & 1st Class took part in Yoga with Siobhán again this year. Once again it was a huge success and the boys enjoyed the weekly sessions. Ms Moloney's class also practiced yoga for P.E. lessons which they really enjoyed.
Huge thank you to Nenagh Eire Óg & All Ireland winning Tipperary hurlers for bringing the Liam McCarthy cup & the Nowlan Cup to St Mary's Junior Boys' NS today. The boys were delighted to meet their heroes today and get to see & hold the cups. Up Tipp!
This year we are once again participating in the Operation Transformation 10@10.

Our school & the Tipperary Sports Partnership have formed a relationship since we embarked on our journey to work towards becoming an Active School.
The Tipperary Sports Partnership offered training to our teachers Ms. Moloney & Ms. Shanahan in the Be Active programme. The Be Active programme gave our teachers many ideas which can be used in our school. Once a month we have an "Active Day" where we get to take part in different activities from the Be Active Programme.
