Santa Walk

This morning we had a Santa walk around the local area. Pupils from junior infants to sixth class along with parents, grandparents, Fr. Geoghan and members of the community set off at 10.30 am from the school.

After everyone returned to the school, we had hot chocolate and lots of Christmas music and dance.

Principal Mr. McHale, thanked all present for their help and support during the year and welcomed Fr. Geoghan to the school community and parish. Fr. Geoghan then presented the girls team with medals for reaching the county final.

A big thank you to to all who helped out on the day including Nicola and Helen for making the delicious hot chocolate.
