The boys in Scoil Eoin Phoil got a little taste of whats its like to be a carpenter for a day.Equipped with hammer and nails and a plank of wood, they created signs. A great day was had by all, many claimed it was their first time to use a hammer!.

The boys had a great time at the Science day organised by the teachers and transition year students at Tullamore College. There was a large range of experiments for the boys to try and among the favourites were the “Gloop” and the “Coke Distillery”. The students of Scoil Eoin Phóil 2 would like to thank the students of transition year and fifth year for all the effort they went to in welcoming us to the school

As part of Fire Safety Week, local fireofficers visited Third Class to highlight the many firehazards in the home. The men talked about their job and the many dangers relating to fires. The boys got to see some of the equipment the fireofficers use and how they work. They watched a dvd which highlighted how quickly a fire can start and engulf a room. Each boy received a firesafety pack which included games, characters and lots of fun things. The boys were very impressed with the presentation and lots of them wanted to be a firemen as a result.
On Thursday the 21st of October, third class got the opportunity to attend Leah Victoria Park to practise their soccer skills and have some fun. A great day was had by all. Future stars in the making!!
Last Sunday was an exciting day for Scoil Eoin Phoil. Three of our Sixth Class students were chosen to officiate during the mini-games at half-time in the Offaly Senior Football County Final. This was part of the ‘Give Respect, Get Respect’ campaign and also marked the anniversary of the 1960/61 Offaly All-Ireland Football winning team. The boys chosen from Scoil Eoin Phoil were Ryan Sheerin, Cian Brennan and Aaron Leavy and the half-time match was contested between Durrow and GaelScoil. Both teams played the game in a sporting manner and shook hands at the end of it. Scoil Eoin Phoil would like to thank Carina Haverty for organising the event.
