On Wednesday December 20th, children from 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th paid their annual visit to the local nursing home. We wish all our neighbours a very happy and peaceful Christmas.

Christmas Art

The children have been busy throughout the month of December. Here is a selection of the work from children from throughout the whole school. Children completed work in clay, fabric and fibre and construction. They also completed paintings and drawing.

Credit Union Art Competition

Well done to the children from our school who entered the Credit Union Art Competition. The development in children’s artistic skills were visible as they got older. Here is a selection of pictures from the senior room. Congratulations to Ronan who was a prize winner in the competition.

Reading Buddies

For the month of December, students from Senior Infants to Sixth Class participated in Reading Buddies. This initiative promoted enjoyment in reading. The children gained confidence during this project and become more motivated to read.

Children in fourth, fifth and sixth completed a five-week cycling course. They familiarised themselves with safety practices and developed skills for cycling. On the final week, they gained some experience of cycling on a public road and received certificates upon completion of Stage 1 of Cycle Right.

To mark Science Week, children from 1st to 6th travelled to St. Anne’s N.S. in Rathkeale to attend a Science Show. This event was organised by the STEM Education Department of Mary Immaculate College. The show was great fun and children began to understand how temperatures can cause objects to change in the hot and cold experiments.


Well done to the children in 6th class who led the ten minute Zumba breaks each morning from September to November. It was great to see everybody get involved from Junior Infants to Sixth Class. 

Storm Ophelia Closure

The school will remain closed tomorrow October 17th as instructed by the Department of Education and Skills.

Christmas Greetings

Happy Christmas to you all.
