Due to Covid 19 we are unable to hold our annual Hallowe’en Fancy Dress sponsored walk this year. We hope to be able to hold a similar fundraiser later in the school year.
However, we will have a Hallowe’en Fancy Dress Friday on 23rd October. All the children can dress up in their favourite Hallowe’en costume on the day. We look forward to seeing all the fabulous outfits and creations!
Due to Covid 19 we will not be collecting any shoeboxes this year. Team Hope have gone online. Please click on the links below to see their information poster and to download/print some colouring pages:

At the fundraising quiz night held in February to raise funds to buy sports equipment for the school, a total of €1,475 was raised. To date the school has purchased a backing board for the basket ball court and had markings put down on the astro turf pitch, so far totalling €700. We will keep you updated with further purchases made with these proceeds.
As always, we would like to thank everyone who organised, who took part in, who made donations, who helped out, who contributed in any way and who sponsored this very successful and enjoyable night.
County Photos will be in school on Wednesday 14th October; please click on link below to read a letter from them outlining the new processes etc.
We are pleased to announce we have been awarded a Blue Star European Flag under the Blue Star Programme.
Our senior class participated in The Blue Star Programme this year, where they learned about European cultures and the EU through creative activities and projects which compliment the primary school curriculum.
We would like to thank Mrs Tansey for all her work with this programme.
We hope to have a flag raising ceremony in due course, early in the new academic year, whilst adhering to all social distancing and health guidelines in place at that time.
