Daffodil day will take place this Friday 24th March. We ask all pupils to wear non uniform or dress up and donate what they can to this worthy cause.
To celebrate Seachtain na Gaeilge, today we held our own "Lá Glas" in the school where pupils wore green to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Ms Lennon also did Irish dancing with us. As a special surprise, to celebrate our Credit Union Quiz success, Peace Proms choir, Church choir, Soccer teams, Gaelic team, Green School committee, Active School committee and to thank all our pupils for their hard work and enthusiasm all year lunch has been provided for all. We wish you a very happy St. Patrick's Day :)
