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!!

Staff vs Students 2018
September 5th, 2018
This year saw the start of one of the biggest sporting rivalries in St. Tolas NS history…The Staff vs The Students!! To wrap up a fantastic year for all this years 6th class, they decided to take on the staff in a game of Olympic Handball. 6th class trained very hard for it and got an initial advantage over the staff who were too busy doing end of year reports to train for the big game. In what could only be described as ideal weather conditions, the game kicked off with a hostile and boisterous crowd supporting 6th class. It was also noted there were quite a few heckles when any staff member got their hands on the ball!!
It was real nip-tuck for most of the match but the experience of the staff came through in the end to allow them stumble over the line in a hard fought battle. Great fun was had by all and many thanks to the parents assosciation who provided drinks on the day…teachers have requested oxygen masks for 2019’s game!!
