Sports Day Winners

We had two fantastic sport days which the children enjoyed thoroughly. As the weather was so hot we ran both days in the morning before little break, We would especially like to thank the sixth class boys who helped out with the running of our sports day. They were so kind and enthusiastic with the younger children. Brilliant lads and they will just do fantastic in secondary school. Looking forward to seeing the lads drop in for a visit in their secondary school uniforms!!

Summer Sunshine.

We have been taking advantage of the glorious sunshine of the past few weeks. The following photos are a small sample of the wonderful outdoor activities taking place in our school. These included releasing our butterflies which room 19 took such amazing care from when they were caterpillars!  Our Junior Toddle for Barnados as well as our “Walk to School” from Éire Óg. We used our fantastic outdoor classroom also for various fun activities such as Knex. We were also very busy during the fine weather for Active School Week which was  fantastic success.  For photos of the basketball, hurling, tennis etc please go to our Active School link above.


Best of luck also to Mr. Corcoran who will be playing hurling for Carlow and Mr. Morrissey who will be playing for Kilkenny in Croke Park in the McDonagh Cup and the Leinster Final on the 1st of July. Beir Bua!!




Ms. Spencer’s 6th class had a glorious day yesterday for their trip to Cullahill. Thanks to their local guide Vincent O’Sullivan for bringing them on an 8.5km guided walk of Cullahill (originally Cullohill Mts.). Some of the highlights included drinking fresh ice cold water from a well and testing for water using a hazel branch. They saw a Fulacht Fiadh, a fairy fort/ring, and lots of wildlife including a frog. They heard some wonderful stories from the past and got to see where Fionn the giant lay and the mould of his body which is still visible. Thanks to Ms. Spencer and Mrs. Kelly for accompanying them.
