Boys Basketball

Huge congratulations to the senior boys' basketball team who reached the playoffs of the county league in January. Despite an outstanding team performance, the boys sadly missed out on a place in the final by a mere three baskets! They represented their school with pride and dignity at every game.

Gardening Club Update - February

Gardening Clubbers are back in action for 2019! They have filled the pots at the front of the school with seasonal plants and have already weeded and prepared the area near St. Brigid for the new plants which will be introduced in spring.

Watch this space!

Our sincere thanks to Niall for this beautiful piece which further adds to the beautiful environment of our school. On Friday 8th February, two of Niall's children, Éa
