We had a wonderful spectacle of sporting prowess this morning when 6th Class pupils took on their teachers in a basketball game.
It was an amazing event for players and spectators alike. A veteran player, in the name of Fergal, joined the teachers after half-time much to the delight and cheers of the crowd.
The end score was..... no one was counting, it was such good fun!!!
Today, the children of Hansfield bid farewell to Fergal in their own special way. They hosted a special assembly with music and song, advice for retirement, messages from past and present pupils, gifts and much love and thanks to a very very special principal.
The children will miss Fergal so much but will hold the fondest of memories of him in the years ahead.
See the video for a taste of this special occasion...
There was many a tired person here today following last night's graduation ceremony for the Class of 2023.
There were speeches, certificate presentations, music, dance and memory videos, all of which made the night so special.
Fergal and teachers spoke of their admiration of and pride in this wonderful group of pupils. They have watched them grow over their years in primary school and rejoice in the wonderful young people they have become.
We are sad to lose the Class of 2023 but wish them every success and happiness in what lies ahead.
Last night, we celebrated for the first time ever the graduation of our pupils from RÁ. What a bittersweet evening it was. Having spent many wonderful years at Hansfield, Aaran, Lily, Saibh, Lexi, Stacey, Jake and Skye are moving on to pastures new. It has been such a joy to have the children in our school. We are so proud of them, will miss them but wish them every happiness in as they move forward.
Congratulations to all the children and thank you for being such a huge part of Hansfield and contributing so much to our school and community.
Go n-éirí libh go léir!
