Celebrating 50 Years of Annuals 

This year Folens is celebrating 50 years of annuals, and like every year, the excitement of Christmas still begins when Súgradh, Spraoi, Siamsa, and Sonas arrive in the classroom.

To celebrate our 50th Anniversary, for every 10 Annuals sold, Folens are donating 1 Annual to charity. Each Folens Christmas Annual is bursting with activities, games, stories, and competitions to entertain and delight this festive period. Be sure not to miss our interviews with footballer Seani Maguire and animated feature filmmaker Tom Moore. Plus, each Annual comes with a free Christmas pen or pencil.


Science Week in Room 1 #scienceweek2020

Science week is a little different this year in our school unfortunately but there are lots of exciting activities and experiments still going on in class!

Take a look at what the children in Room 1 have been learning about this week. Working in stations they have explored objects that float or sink. They looked at different insects and counted their legs. They tried to build a wheel barrow. Ramps with different surfaces were also used and the children discovered which surfaces were the best for speed. The children also discovered that flames need oxygen to stay alight!

Sad News

We were all saddened today when we learned of the passing of Rev Fr. Diarmuid Connolly in the early hours of the morning in Elm Green Nursing home.



The Opening of the Infant Building

Fr, Connolly was a much loved member of our school and parish community since his arrival as parish priest in 1984. For many years he celebrated  masses, communions, confirmations and carols services with our staff and pupils and continued to do so long after his retirement. The last celebration  we enjoyed with him was his 90th birthday when our choir performed a special concert in his honour.

We remember him with admiration and affection and we extend our sympathies to all his family and friends.
