Fond Farewells


Rang a 6 2019

It was an emotional farewell as we said 'Onwards and Upwards' to all the pupils in Rang a 6. They were a lovely bunch to have in our school and they will be sorely missed. 


Slan go foill Ms. Kavanagh

It was a day for farewells as we wished Ms. Kavanagh all the best for her future in Co. Clare. She will be sorely missed.

Tractor Run


A massive thank you to everyone involved in Saturday’s Tractor & Truck Run. To the people who organized another fantastic day and to those who helped out in every way on the day, we are so grateful. Thanks to everyone who donated raffle prizes. Huge thanks to Dick Dooley for another fab spread. And to everyone who came out in their tractors and trucks, thank you again. We couldn’t have had the event without you. We raised almost €2,900 which will go towards setting up a sensory room for our pupils.

Our school debating team have progressed to the final of our region's Concern Primary Debating competition. We are pitted against Gowran N.S. on Monday the 8th of April. We will be opposing the motion 'Genetically modified food is essential in the fight against world hunger'.

Mobile & Device Free Lent


We are all very proud of our 5th & 6th class pupils and families who have signed the charter to stay away from Social Media for Lent. While a difficult thing to do, both classes are adamant to make this happen and both class teachers are more than happy to reward the children for their efforts.
