On Wednesday our Junior Football Team took part in the first round of the inaugural Kerry Schools Competition against Pres Tralee in Kerins O Rahillys. We started the game well with some quick scores and held the lead into half time. After the break Pres Tralee came out strong and narrowed the gap but our girls fought back, finishing strongly with an impressive score of Pres Listowel 5 – 9 to Pres Tralee 2 -9. Well done to all our players on an excellent game of football. Our next game will be the quarter final of the Cup Competition.
Today the 27th of January is Holocaust Memorial Day we remember all those murdered during the Holocaust, under Nazi persecution. On this day 77 years ago the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, we paused to reflect on the lives of the 6 million Jewish people lost. A dark lesson in history: we owe it to each of the victims to ensure it will never happen again. We also remember those who died in other genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.
Our 2B Class today, accompanied by Ms Ahern, Ms Burke and Ms. McAuliffe took a walk to visit the Holocaust Memorial in the Garden of Europe here in Listowel. It is Ireland’s only Public Memorial to the Holocaust.
