We had a wonderful finale on Wednesday 27th January when parents, pupils and teachers all came together and had a hooley in the hall!!!! We waltzed, jived, line danced and even did the Hucklebuck!! Have a look at our photos below :)

Surprise Visitor Helen Mc Entee TD
We were delighted today when Helen Mc Entee TD dropped in to see us!!! She visited all classrooms and spoke to our pupils. We talked about the centenary of the 1916 rising and also about our wonderful trip to the Dail which we thank Helen for organising for us. Helen has been a great friend to our school and previously visited us in 2013 to raise our first Green flag. She has been a wonderful inspiration to our pupils and we wish her the very best of luck in the upcoming elections ! We hope we will see her again in the near future.😀
