Sciath na Scol
Updated 06/12/03


Ovens National School has been taking part in the Sciath na Scol competition for many years. Sciath 
na Scol is a sports tournament that is held every year among primary schools.  There are many
 competitions within Sciath na Scol - boys and girls Gaelic Football, Hurling and Camogie, and is
 supported by the GAA (The Gaelic Athletic Association). All schools are encouraged to take part.

We are pleased to report that our teams have been very successful during that time. In the last eight 
years we have won (1) ladies hurling (2) ladies football (3)county finals in Camogie, Boys Football (4) 
and reached two more finals in hurling and girls football. Last year we competed in eleven Sciath na 
Scol competitions. Our training takes place at lunch times, football from September to November, 
Indoor hurling from December to February, hurling / camogie from March to June. Our games usually 
start between 2.00pm and 3.00pm and arrival home depends on distance travelled. (Parents drive us 
to matches for which we are very grateful)
