We wish you all a very happy, safe and peaceful Christmas. School will re-open on Monday 9th January 2017. See you all then :)
What a wonderful day we had yesterday as we went on our Santa Run around the village. Along the way we visited some historical sites and we thank Mrs. Tully for organising this for us. We were all fascinated by the local history. Following this, we returned to school and got a huge surprise when the fire brigade pulled up, sirens blaring!! We were delighted when we discovered that Santa was with them!!! Santa came into the assembly hall and talked to all our pupils and each child got a wonderful present from him, a Drumconrath Football Club hat!!! We were delighted. We thank Drumconrath Football Club so much for this fantastic surprise!!! See photos of this great day below.
A very festive day was had by all on Friday 16th December as Junior Infants, Senior Infants and First Class performed their nativity plays. This was followed by a whole school carol service in the church. We hope you enjoyed it and very well done to all our pupils for their hard work and wonderful efforts. Happy Christmas everyone!!!
We had a wonderful day out last Wednesday 14th December as we all boarded the bus to Castleblayney and went to see the pantomime "Freezin" in the Iontas Theatre. This was a fabulous production and was enjoyed by all. We were very proud of our two students taking part, Deirdre Byrne and Nikita Daly. We were also delighted to see some past pupils, Daniel Myles and James McMahon in the show.They were fantastic! Have a look at our photos below.
The Christmas spirit is alive and well in our school this week. We are really looking forward to our big day out this Wednesday 14th December as we will all go to see the pantomime "Freezin" in the Iontas Theatre in Castleblayney. 4th,5th and 6th class will take a detour on our way home and visit the workhouse in Carrickmacross for a historical tour.

Garda Noel Loughran (Juvenile Liaison Officer) visited our school today, Thursday 8th December at 9.30am to speak to 4th, 5th and 6th class pupils abut internet safety and cyberbullying. Our pupils received a lot of useful information and tips. It is so important in this technological age that our pupils are aware how to stay safe online. Noel spoke recently at the Novena in Dundalk and we were delighted that he was able to visit us. Thank you Noel!!!
