Graduation Awards

The excitement on our last day of school was tinged with sadness, as we bid farewell to our wonderful 6th class pupils.

We wish them continued success and happiness as they graduate from national school and move into a new and exciting chapter of their lives in secondary school.


Presentation of Awards

We had a very exciting last day of school today, as the pupils with the highest levels of attendance for the school year, received awards for their fantastic attendance. Well done everyone!


Green Fingers

On Wednesday 23rd June, our senior room worked hard, harvesting fruit and vegetables in the school garden. We had great fun pulling up and picking our fruit and veg that we had planted earlier in the school year! We had lots of cabbages, carrots, scallions, lettuce and strawberries to bring home.

Yeats Day 2015

Congratulations to Jonathan from Senior Infants whose art work interpreting the WB Yeats Poem “The Stolen Child” was chosen to be published in the book “The Magic Within”, a collection of pictures and poems celebrating the 150th birthday of WB Yeats.

The “Yeats Among Schoolchildren” competition, supported by Yeats2015, The Department of Education & Skills and The Association of Teachers’ Education Centres in Ireland (ATECI), invited children to draw, paint or write a poem based on one of W.B. Yeats’ poems. The aim of the competition was to honour the legacy of Ireland’s National Poet by raising awareness among primary school children about the works of Yeats and their cultural and historical importance.

Over 100,000 primary school children from across the country took part in this competition with only 85 entries, including Jonathan’s, making it to the final stage.

Jonathan and his family were invited to attend the official launch of the book in the Clarion Hotel Sligo on Friday the 12th June.

Well done Jonathan, what a fantastic achievement!

Junior Room School Tour

On Thursday the 11th of June, the Junior Room went on their school tour to Turoe Pet Farm. The sun was shining and we had such a fantastic day. Emma, our tour guide, gave us a tour of the farm where we saw lots of really interesting animals including a giant pig, a peacock and two alpacas! We even got a chance to feed the animals! After that we had over an hour and a half to play in Inflatable City (Ireland’s largest indoor bouncy castle) and in Jungle Town. As the weather was so good, we also had an opportunity to play on the outdoor playgrounds. Everyone had a brilliant day!
