Scoil Mhuire agus Naomh Treasa National School in Currow has had two fantastic surprise wins lately. 

And they were surprises because it was actually two parents who entered the school in competitions and put it in line for these wonderful prizes.

“Firstly Aisling Barrett, mom to two pupils in the school, entered the school’s name in a Facebook competition run by McD’s Garden and Home, Loughrea,” explained teacher, Breda McGaley.

Magnificent Outdoor Crib Set

“The school came out winners of a magnificent outdoor crib set. It was delivered to the school shortly after and a suitable stable was erected to house the beautiful figures.

“The stable can be viewed from the front gate of the school and is well worth a visit after 5pm when the crib lights come on.

“Currow NS extend huge thanks to Aisling Barrett and McD’s Garden and Home, Loughrea for this fantastic prize.

Another Win Soon After 

“Soon after, the school was notified of another win! Catriona, mom to the Doolan-Browne family entered the school in the Centra Fans in the Stand competition – and once again, Currow NS came out on top.

These portrait boards then became the ‘fans in the stand’ in Croke Park for the Kerry v Antrim hurling final.

Again, the school extends huge thanks to Catriona and Centra for this wonderful opportunity.

A Hive of Activity

“The school has been a hive of activity for the past number of weeks and we all appreciate the distractions from Covid 19 and the ‘new normal.’

“To add to this Currow NS decided to lift spirits for the month of December by celebrating ‘Bride and Groom’ Friday – in honour of our SNA Siobhán Fleming getting married. We had a ‘Crazy Hair Friday’ and ‘Christmas Jumper Friday’ as well.

“These days were thoroughly enjoyed by students, staff and parents alike,” said Breda.
