The excitement was tangible in Lurga this morning as the 25 Junior & Senior Infants set off, some for their first time on the bus.
5th and 6th class students enjoyed spending time with Junior & Seniors during paired reading where the love of reading was evident from all the happy faces.
Celebrating their 1st Week
A past pupil donated some lovely bright balloons for the Junior and Senior Infants to congratulate them on their first week in Lurga. There was happy faces all round.
1st Day In Lurga
Creating a Hotel For Bugs !!
The fun and excitement today as numerous hotels for bugs were created and placed throughout the school gardens.
Our School Tour
The excitement started from the minute the bus pulled up where it was a first for some of the Juniors and Seniors to get on a bus, the joy on their little faces just priceless. Off to Turoe Pet Farm where the day continued to "The Best Ever". The children were complemented on how well mannered and well behaved they were. Well done to everyone involved at Turoe for making it a day to remember and to Ms Roche and Susanne.

Junior & Senior Infants
Welcome! A new school year is underway and the new Junior Infants are settling in to life in "big school"with the help of the Senior Infants.
During the 2018-2019 school year, the children from Lurga took part in lots of different competitions, gradings and shows. The children won lots of medals, cups, rosettes, certificates and even a belt in a wide range of sports and activities such as hurling, soccer, swimming, jiu-jitsu, tennis, taekwondo, Irish dancing, horse-riding and handwriting. All the teachers are very proud of these wonderful talents and achievements and a special assembly was held to celebrate them.
Juniors, Seniors, 1st and 2nd Class travelled to Kilbeacanty National School to take part in a Hurling Blitz. There were three schools present; Lurga, Kilbeacanty and Lough Cutra. The boys and girls were divided up into teams and took part in lots of games. There was a fantastic display of hurling skills on show and everyone had a great day.

Our Jungle Books
We are all authors! Here are some of our books and imaginative creations inspired by Rudyard Kipling's, The Jungle Book.
The children have been learning about a number of topics since September., including The Farm, The Restaurant,The Pet Shop, The Dentist, the Post Office and of course Christmas. The children rotate from station to station where they explore the topics and experience high quality learning through play.
We were very grateful to Donal and Karen who told us about the work of the vet and about pet care. Dakota was a big hit with everyone!
