On Monday September 8th we were delighted to receive a visit from the triumphant Dee Rangers ladies football team. They have been crowned Meath Ladies Junior Football Champions, following their amazing win in last Saturday's final in Ashbourne, from which they emerged deserving victors with a 28 point win over Dunsany. Newtown National School is proud to have many past pupils on the team, and we congratulate them wholeheartedly, along with all of their teammates who put their heart and soul into their football. Many of our present pupils also play for Dee Rangers juvenile teams, and this team sets a fantastic example to their younger club members. The team were even generous enough to bring gifts of sweets to our pupils and the extremely well received gift of No Homework! :) Fantastic achievement ladies,thank you all for taking the time to visit us. Comhgairdeas ó chroí libh go léir!
On Monday 2nd June, 15 of our parents and teachers travelled to Dublin to take part in the Flora Women's Mini Marathon 2014! This is the largest event of its kind in Europe, and we had a fantastic day! It is an awe-inspiring event, and we hope to take part again next year. Below are just a few pictures of the day! A huge thanks to our Newtown N.S. representatives for giving up their Bank Holiday Monday in aid of our school, and to all who donated sponsorship.
Our school has been chosen to select one girl to play in a display match at half-time at the Meath V Armagh National League match on March 1st in Páirc Tailteann, Navan. We had a draw to select our representative. Our lucky winner is Alanna McNulty, 5th Class. We wish her all the best of luck in representing County Meath. Up the Royals!
