Welcome to 5th and 6th class

6th class boys and girls went on a walk through the woods to Carey's Castle as part of National Tree Day. Paddy and Barry from Coillte led the walk and showed us the different trees and their leaves.

Congratulations to Ciaran Walsh and Jake Mulcahy who were selected to play on the Primary Game hurling and football team.

The 5th and 6th class who won first prize in the Corke Park 'Write a Poem' Competition. They won 5 footballs for the school and 20 tickets to the All Ireland Ladies Football Final. Their poem called 'The Deise Rap' was printed in the All Ireland Match Programme

The Déise Rap

In the County of Waterford, long long ago,
There was a small little community that began to grow,
Ballymac ladies for the football, they won trophies by the score,
Their training in the Mill Field, we hope they will win more.

Waterford in the 90’s were a team no one could beat,
So to win in twenty ten, would really be a treat,
We’re back again in Croker to win the Mary Quinn Cup,
Our girls they have great skill and we know they won’t give up.

The Wall sisters they are mighty and the Ryan sisters too,
With Hopper and Laurissa, all wearing the white and blue,
We are going to support them and we hope you will come too,
With 8 Ballymac players on the county team, we must give them their due.

Donegal from the North have come to face the South,
We’ll go and cheer our ladies on, that’s what it’s all about,
So Best of Luck to Waterford, from the kids in Ballymac school,
If ye bring the cup to visit us, it really would be CÚL.
