As part of our attendance strategy, it is an important aim of the school to have children attend as frequently as possible. Every two months, any child who has full attendance for the previous two months will receive a small reward to recognise being fantastic attenders!! As you can see, we had many children who missed no day in September and October. We’re hoping more children can join them for November/December.
Halloween Quiz 2018
October 26th, 2017
We had a fantastic turnout last night for our Halloween Quiz. 32 teams in total battled it out for what was a very enjoyable night. Many thanks to all our sponsors who donated so many raffle prizes on the night. Thanks to all the children in the school who did art over the last couple of weeks which made our hall SPOOKTACULAR looking. Special thanks to all our staff who helped prepare for and organise the night. They were a particularly colourful bunch this year!! Congratulations to the McKey family who won the best dressed team and to the Marren-O’Callaghan family who won the table quiz.
Fun Walk 2017
June 8th, 2017
On Friday, May 26th our entire school went for a mega walk all around Shannon. We had lovely weather for it and had great fun, even trekking up Tullyglass hill!! We were greeted with a welcome surprise when we saw members of the school’s Parents Association greeting us back with a cool refreshing drink each. Thanks to all parents who helped out on the day and to all our fantastic families who helped to raise over €4,000 for the school. Special thanks to all our Junior and Senior Infants who looked after the children in 5th and 6th classes…they wouldn’t have gotten up that hill without the help of our youngest pupils!!

On Friday last, our entire school took part in the 10 at 10 initiative promoted by the TV programme Operation Transformation. Every child and teacher in the school met in the front yard and were put through an intensive warm-up workout, before we went on a lovely long walk around Shannon. We had great fun and enjoyed the exercise. Huge thanks to our Infant classes who looked after 6th and 5th classes during the walk by holding their hand.
