5th Class Tour to Aran Islands and Cliffs of Moher

June 12th, 2019


Thanks to Zuzanna Kusko’s amazing artistic talents, our class won a the chance to go on a cruise of the Cliffs of Moher. After tense negotiations in recent months, we decided to add a trip to Inis Oírr to our school tour!! We met bright-eyed and bushy tailed at 8am and set off on the bus to Doolin Pier. The ferry crossing was lovely and smooth. We had great fun playing in the playground, exploring part of the island, visiting a shipwreck, having an outdoor picnic, playing soccer, badminton and racketball, and buying some treats in the shop…it was a good opportunity to make use of our ‘cúpla focail’ sa siopa!! On the way home, we were lucky to get seats on the top deck of the ferry which brought us right under the bottom of the Cliffs of Moher. We had an amazing view of the cliffs from below. The people up doing the cliff walk looked really small. We saw a sea-stack, a sea-arch, Harry Potters cave and loads of interesting birds and sea-life. It was a fantastic day and many of us needed to recharge our batteries with a nap on the way home!!


Astro-Turf Playing Facility Fundraising

May 8th, 2019

St Tolas NS are working hard to develop an astro turf playing facility for our children. Our Christmas Concerts kick-started our fundraising drive and we were delighted to raise over €8,000 over the couple of nights. Fundraising for this project is ongoing and we are very grateful to our Parents Association and wider school community for their support in this initiative. A further €2,000 has been raised through various fundraising projects. Our goal is to raise €50,000 to cover the costs of the project. A yard redevelopment committee has been setup to discuss further fundraising ideas and to brainstorm ideas that might help us to reach our goal as soon as possible. This committee includes Ms. Dunlea-Fitzgerald, Mr. Quinn, Ms. Vaughan and Richard, Dara and Nicole from the Board of Management. Keep an eye out for thermometers on display around the school which will keep you updated on how much money we raise towards our astro-turf pitch. We are all very excited to be able to provide our children with such a fantastic resource which they will reap the benefits of for years to come!
