We are delighted that the hugely popular children’s author Shane Hegarty will begin writing workshops with our 5th and 6th class pupils on 26th September and will work with us between now and Christmas 👌🎄.

The first book in this series is due to be released as an animated Hollywood movie in January 2019. We are very excited to begin working on this programme and hope it will be a huge benefit to our pupils 😊👏🎉

We are so excited at school this week!!! Our Quiz team took part in the Credit Union National Final in the RDS in Dublin on Sunday 8th April 2018 and came first!!! Our under 11's team scored 45 points and became All-Ireland Champions!!! We could not be more proud of them. The team celebrated in Apache Pizza after the Quiz and we were so delighted that our Chairperson, Fr. Connaughton joined us for this! At school the next day, we got food and ice-cream for the whole school to celebrate and of course, we had no homework for one night only!! Congratulations to all involved in this wonderful achievement!! See below for photos of this great day :)
