WOW Walk to School Day took place two weeks ago . Here are some highlights from the day's assembly.
Prosperous' good run of form continued following another win today (Wednesday) over Scoil Uí Riada, Kilcock.
A slow start left the team trailing within the first 15 minutes but confidence remained high with the team down by only two points at half time.
A strong start to the second half saw us go four points ahead within seven minutes. The backs put in a brilliant performance to keep Kilcock's scoring opportunities to a minimum.
More points followed for Prosperous, coming from all over the pitch with a handful of goals also notched onto the scoreboard, thanks to Daniel Lynam, Lauren Judge and Kevin Bagnell.
When the final whistle blew, our hard work and great play saw us walk away winners on a score of 3-06 to 1-05.
Our next outing will see close rivals Caragh travelling to Prosperous, with the date yet to be finalised.
Team: Sean Scully, Cathal McKennedy, Matthew McNally, Caoimhe O'Hare, Ciara Bartley, Eoin O'Hare, Micky Dempsey, Daniel Murray, Daniel Lyman, Michael Hurley, Ronan O'Brien, Dean O'Sullivan, Cathal Doorey, Lauren Judge, Kevin Bagnell, Timas Bodindorefas.

Congratulations to the senior boy's team who have reached the semi finals! Their game is on Thursday 22nd of May at Scoil Mhuire Ballymany in Newbridge at 2 o clock. Opponents are to be confirmed. Please turn out to support the lads in this important fixture.
Next week is National Walk to School Week. Students from Green-Schools all over Ireland will come together during National Walk to School Week on May the 12th until May 16th to show their support for a greener, healthier environment by encouraging pupils, parents and teachers to walk to school wherever possible. Therefore we ask you to join us in promoting walking and other sustainable travel modes to your school throughout National Walk to School Week and to join in Green’s Schools’ National WOW day on Wednesday the 14th of May and help us reach the target of 20,000 people walking to school all over Ireland.
To help promote Walk to School Week we would like to see as many people as possible walking to school every day next week. If you come by car, you could ask to be dropped a short distance from the school and walk the rest of the way. The Green Schools Committee will record the number of children walking to school every day next week.
On Wednesday we will be having a walk to school in your sports gear day. This can be your school tracksuit, your own tracksuits, football gear etc.
We are also running a competition. This can be an individual or group effort to write a ‘walk or exercise’ themed song, poem, story, rap or slogan (1st to 6th class). Junior and Senior Infants can draw a picture of themselves walking to school. This could be done at home, before school starts or at golden time. We would need to have all entries in by Tuesday the 13th of May. There will be one winner from each class. A selection of these will be chosen to be read/displayed at assembly on Wednesday.
We hope you all make a big effort to walk to school next week.
Today Neil Dowling of Drum Nature visited our school. Eight classes got to participate in the workshops. Some of the comments were "really fun", "exciting", "you got to make noise in school". The experience was very positive. The teachers took lots of photos.
The winner of the Website Treasure Hunt was the family of Abigail Byrne who is in Junior Infants. Well done Abigail!
Abigail and her family have won a season pass to the Kildare Maze.
Many thanks to Gwen at the Kildare Maze.
Thank you all so much for entering the treasure hunt and for making the launch of the new school website so spectacular. There have been over 16,000 page views since launch!

Recently Miss. Kiely's senior art class completed their final term. We hosted an exhibition for family members and we hope to show our work to our peers soon. The children worked very hard and developed new techniques to use in the future. Miss. Kiely was thrilled with their efforts and beautiful pieces.
Prosperous hurlers were back on form this week after a comfortable win over Scoil Uí Fhiaich, Maynooth.
The mixed team put in a strong performance with all players contributing to the win. As the saying goes, lovely hurling was displayed with a final score of 4 - 04 to 1 - 04.
See ye all at training next week lads!
