Well Done To Dualla NS & Cashel BNS Juniors By Cathal D’Arcy 6th Class Dualla NS

The Junior Dualla NS Team played the Cashel Junior team recently. It was played in the Denis Leamy centre at 1:00 o’clock. It was a very exciting match and we had great support from all the parents. All the Juniors really enjoyed the match. Eoin Moloughney scored four goals and a point and Páraic Brosnan scored 1 goal.


Steps to Establishing Club-School Links

1. Ensure that the club has a dedicated School Liaison Officer (SLO). The SLO should be selected after considering availability to visit the school during school hours and communication skills. (If there is a club member teaching in the school he/she should not be asked to be SLO)
2. The SLO and club Chairperson could arrange to meet the principal and teacher with responsibility for sport/games.
3. Agree points of contact for club and school.
4. Outline the club's work at underage as well as the Go Games Programme which promotes participation for all children.
5. Establish what support the school requires in terms of:
a) Equipment and gear
b) Facilities
c) Coaching assistance in the school setting
d) Support for Cumann na mBunscol activities
e) Assistance with organising Go Games Blitzes
f) Support for after school activities e.g. homework clubs
g) Information about coaching courses
h) Club membership for staff
6. Formalise arrangements regarding mutual use of each other’s facilities.
7. Establish (and keep up to date) a GAA notice-board in the school with information on Club Blitzes, Ú Can (Skill) Awards, GAA Cúl Camps, Cumann na mBunscol activities etc.
8. Provide a calendar of club events e.g. registration days, Go Games Blitzes etc. and keep up to date with school events.
