The pupils in Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Classes participated in the FAI Soccer Blitz. Congratulations to all pupils on their achievements. We are delighted to announce that the girls and boys teams have qualified for the next round of the competition. Best of luck to all involved.
Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Classes played five-a-side soccer today in Parkville United. They had a great day.
Thanks to Garry Coady from the FAI who organised the day and to Ms. O’Neill and Ms. Hunter Garland who attended the event with our boys and girls.
A slideshow of their day can be viewed here.
We were delighted to welcome members of An Garda Síochana to St. Columba’s N.S. today. Garda Neill spoke to our children about safety on the road and the importance of booster seats, hi vis vests and bicycle helmets. They showed us how their handcuffs work too! Then we went outside to see the Mounted Unit. Every child had a chance to pet the horse and we had our photo taken with them.
Thank you to Sgt. Joe Hanley from Tullow Garda Station who organised the visit. We all thoroughly enjoyed our day.

Junior and Senior Infants had a special visit from An Garda Síochana today. Lots of us would like to be Gardaí when we grow up. We drew beautiful pictures of our favourite part of the visit. You can see them here .
