Christmas Carol Service 2018

January 7th, 2019

A wonderful carol service was held in the hall on the day of the holidays.  The story of Christmas was shared as well as Christmas traditions from around the world. Children from every nationality in our school shared a Christmas greeting in their native language. Every class performed either a song or a poem also. Thanks to all our families who visited to share the morning with us. We wish our entire school community a special Christmas and every best wish for 2019!!


Christmas Concerts 2018

January 7th, 2019

Juniors, Seniors, 1st and 2nd classes put on quite a show for the rest of the school and their families. There was a very sleep shepherd in Junior Infants, Seniors dealt with a snowman trying to avoid the inevitable effects of the sun, 1st class had a lovely variety of songs and 2nd class went on strike for better pay and conditions for the elves at Christmas!! The children were amazing and a credit to their teachers, all of whom put in so much work to prepare for their show. Have a peek at our gallery to see if you recognise anybody!!

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We hope you are well as we come to the end of our first term this current school year. Our news is as follows

  • Thank you to all the parents and family members who supported our 40th Anniversary Variety Show last week. The shows were a great success and we were all so proud of our talented pupils. Thank you to the Parents’ Association who helped out not just on the show nights but in the lead up and in the organisation also. Thank you to our wonderful staff who worked so hard to ensure that the shows were a success. I am delighted to report that we raised a total of €8200 over the two nights which kick starts our fundraising efforts to re-develop the yard and play space at the front of the school. We really appreciate the generosity of all involved.
