 News From Lorrha School.

Congratulations and well done to our green school committee who have been awarded the third Green Flag for our school. All the hard work has paid off and we extend thanks to the parents who supported our work towards this achievement. We look forward to the raising of the flag before the summer break. Well done to all.

 Spelling Bee.

Michaela Young represented our school in the Tipperary Eason Spelling Bee Competition in Cashel at the beginning of April. The day was a wonderful success and Michaela gained a lot of experience from the competition coupled with loads of goodies from Eason’s. Well done Michaela. Now in its fourth year, over 1,000 schools nationwide entered the 2014 competition to find the nation’s top speller when the finals are held in June.

Schools Hurling.

The Lorrha / Redwood schools combination team progress in the hurling with a six point victory over Lissenhall in the second round. We play Ballinahinch in the next round soon and we wish the team the best of luck.

Thank You.

Our school has been awarded €598 in free books from the recent Scholastic Book Fair which took place in the school. This could not have been achieved without the support of the students and their parents. Thank you to everyone who attended, helped and supported.
