We were awarded our 12th Green Flag from An Taisce recently. As a committed Green School, the staff and pupils worked hard on their recent project, Global Citizenship – Travel. We celebrated our award with a trip on the Viking Boat. What better way to spend an afternoon together 🙂
We were honoured and delighted that members of Clann na nGael Club came to our school today to congratulate us on our school centenary.

3rd to 6th class really enjoyed their school tour today to Tayto Park. It was a lovely, sunny day and everything went so well. We went on lots of the amusement rides, enjoyed looking at the animals in the zoo and had fun in the playground. We’ll all sleep tonight! 🙂
