Table Tennis and Giant Chess!

A big thank you to our Parent’s Council who very kindly funded and organised the purchase of a giant chess set for our chess room and a table tennis table to give all classes extra options during rainy days.

Each class has been given a time to make use of the new resources and a lunch-time table tennis league has been promised for March. Rumour has it that the table tennis table was previously rented out by the Irish soccer team and Robbie Brady made a scratch on the side of the table!!!
