My Time in Cloonloo School by Adam Hayden (6th Class)

When I first started in St. Ronan’s N.S., I was five. I didn’t know anyone but soon I started making friends. Today I have lots of friends and my best friend is Cody   Gardner.

When I started school I was useless at soccer. Everyone encouraged me to play. Today I love soccer and I play for Boyle Celtic. I also played Gaelic football for the school. We won two county finals and lost one .I also played tag rugby for the school. We have never been beaten in any of our matches.

My favourite subjects are Maths, Art, P.E., History and Science. My teachers were Ms Jordan and Mr Heffernan. My stay at Cloonloo N.S was very enjoyable and I hope I am as happy in Abbey Community College in Boyle.
