Traditional Concert in Sports Hall

What a great day we had in school today . Over 950   adults and children filed into the Sports Hall at 9:30 am to listen to  some great traditional Irish Music. We all got to clap along and sing and we were especially thrilled to see Mr Harrison join the  group on stage and  later to see  Ms O’ Brien dance.







Seachtain na Gaeilge

Today Seachtain na Gaeilge drew to a close with a wonderful concert in the Sports Hall. Every class from JI to 3RD performed a song ,  a rhyme or a drama. Ms. O’ Halloran was MC  wearing her very own  specially designed leprechaun costume for the occasion. We all sat  really quietly and listened attentively . It was great fun.  You can see how well behaved we were in the photos below !  Tomorrow we have the raffle to look forward to .  Ms O’ Halloran said there will be nearly 30 prizes !

Pizza Party

The quiz teams had a pizza party today as a thank  you from the school for  all their efforts . It wasn’t long before they had it all gobbled up!


Head Lice

Every September we get the usual outbreaks of head lice in our school. If there is evidence of nits or lice in your child’s class we will send a health warning to you. Please do not ignore it and assume your child is immune. The only way to eradicate lice is if everyone checks and treats accordingly. If a child is infected and is not treated the whole class will be reinfected again.
