Best wishes to all  our sixth class pupils who graduated this week. They are just just incredible and will be missed. See you all in September

Awards Ceremony

We had a very pleasant awards ceremony in our hall. In front of the entire school and invited guests and parents, the fantastic achievements, both academic and social, of the boys were acknowledged by both staff, Board of Management and Principal Mrs Kelly. Well done everyone!

Mrs. Wall’s Quiz Cup and Medals

We were especially pleased to welcome former Principal Mrs Wall back to present medals to all the boys who have worked so hard at learning their quiz questions. Mrs Wall also presented both a Junior and Senior Cup to both our school quiz teams. Well done to all involved.

Lord Mayor’s Visit

We were delighted with the  visit of former pupil Fintan Phelan to our school. It was the last day of his year as Lord Mayor. He wished our hurling Division 1 finalists all the best in their Hurling Final. Fintan’s visit was also during our annual school fete, which was an outstanding success. This is due in no small part to our brilliant Parent’s Council. Well done everyone!

We had great fun at the Playground Project @ Visual today. We played in the loziworm which was created by Pestalozzi in 1972 and can now be found in playgrounds all around the world! We had great fun playing on the wave climbing frame, on the bouncy ropes and in the sand pit. We chatted about how important playing is for our bodies and brains. Then we became ‘play experts’ and created our own playgrounds using paper and recycled materials.

Debating Success

Best of luck to our school debating team. After defeating four schools in the South Leinster Section, the boys will now be debating next Friday in the semi-finals in Kilkenny Education Centre. Best of luck to the boys and their coaches Mr. Percy and Ms. McAssey. They have just been brilliant. Photo shows boys demonstrating their debating skills to the school prior to the Easter break.

Knex Challenge

We are having great fun building our Knex Smashers. Each class will be going to the hall to build their Knex models and then smash them against another lads model! The boys then go back and build a stronger model. Fantastic fun and a great time is had by all.
