Award Winners

Well done to all the children who brought medals and trophies to Assembly to show to us today. The children won these awards for table tennis, Cubs and Girl Guides. Congratulations everyone!


Fire Safety

We were delighted to have a visit from the Fire Brigade this week. They set a chip pan on fire in the yard and showed us the scary effect water has on an oil fire. We learned that every house should have a fire blanket in the kitchen in case of emergencies!

Fighting Words!

Congratulations to everyone in Fourth Class who recently took part in a Fighting Words workshop and are one of the Cork classes mentioned in this article!



Christmas Concerts

Students from Junior Infants to Sixth Class took part in our Christmas concerts this year, showcasing a huge variety of songs, poems, dances, skits and plays. A lot of hard work went into preparing each class’s piece and this was evident in the high quality performances. Well done everyone! For more photos please visit the individual class blogs.
