Well done to all eleven teams from St. Seachnall’s N.S. who took part in the annual Credit Union Primary Schools Table Quiz in Dunshaughlin Community Centre on Friday 29th January. All teams acquitted themselves very well. In the Under 11 section St. Seachnall’s finished in first and second place. Isaac Tuite, Daniel O’Brien, Timothy Russell and Eoin O’Sullivan, all from fourth class, were part of the team who finished as runners up. The winning team was Lucy Kelly, Pierce Dunne, Ciarán Geelon and Seán Summerville, all pupils in fifth class. This team now goes forward to the regional final in the Ardboyne Hotel in Navan on Friday 26th February at 7.30 p.m. We wish them and their mentor Mr. Slack the best of luck. Well done also to the Credit Union art winners from St. Seachnall’s. Cian Edwards, Maria Awad, Ada Ogarek and Eva Huang were all presented with their prizes before the quiz.
Our medal presentation took place today for the victorious Seachnall's boys' team who won the Meath Cumann na mBunscol final on December 2nd 2015 in Dunganny.There is a proud tradition of Gaelic games in our school and last month's win over Dunboyne was the school's 6th boys title and our first ever division one victory.
The medals were presented by members of the 1990 team who won the Division Two final 25 years ago. We would like to express our gratitude to the members for participating in our medal ceremony today. We also acknowledged the participation of our girls' Gaelic teams throughout the history of the school. Our very first Meath Cumann na mBunscol Division One title was won by the girls team of 2006 and a second title came in 2012. Last year (2015) our girls team qualified for the quarter finals before coming up short against St. Marys, Trim.
