Wellbeing through physical activity 

We are piloting a programme of physical activity for all classes over the coming weeks where the emphasis will be on a little extra running/walking each day. No special gear is required. We request that the children just wear their tracksuit and runners to school each day from next Monday, 18th November.

Parish Programme for Confirmation

Preparation for confirmation has already started and the Parish and school request the help of some sixth class parents to volunteer and facilitate the “You Shall Be My Witness Programme “which will commence in the New Year. We need 8 volunteer parents from 6th class for whom training will be provided. You will also need to be Garda Vetted. Please let Mr. Costelloe know if you can help out.
