End of Term

Today is the last day of the school term 2016/2017.

We wish all the sixth class pupils leaving us this year the very best.  We will miss them!

Have a happy and safe summer break and we will see you all when the school reopens on Thursday the 31st August.

Well done

Well done to Emily Walsh who won a trophy and a medal for gymnastics on Monday the 19th June.

Sports Day

A reminder that the School Sports Day will take place on Monday.


World War 2 Talk

Thank you to Eugene O’Keeffe for a very informative talk that he gave to fifth and sixth class pupils on World War 2.


Active Schools Week

Active Schools Week has been a busy week in the school.

During the week infants to second class took part in an educational trail around the school grounds.

A soccer league took place at lunch times and the final will be held next week.

Relaxation activities were enjoyed by the pupils.

Infants and first and second went on a Teddy Bear’s Picnic – thank you to Helen and Nicola for helping with this.  Infants had some shared reading time with the senior classes and built some creative constructions.

Pottery teacher Finn gave a very interesting and exciting lesson to the third to sixth classes.

We now look forward to the Sports Day on Monday!
