Tidy Town’s competition: Holy Family Boys’ NS are very proud to receive 2nd Place in the school’s category of the competition. John Boyd presented our very active Green School’s committee with the trophy on Thursday 29th September . We received 2nd place because of the committee’s diligent work throughout the school year. For example; we recycled 90kg of used batteries, we recycled waste paper and made eco paper logs, we kept our school tidy through a Tidy Classroom’s competition and much more. Well done everyone.

Well done to all our athletes who took part in the Carlow Primary School’s Cross Country Competition. Close on two hundred children took part in the this very competitive race featuring all the best runners in Carlow. We were delighted to emerge with the fastest runner in all of Carlow. John Phiri, from 5th class, is a remarkable talent and one to definitely watch for the future! A special thank you to all our parents, coaches and especially the children who did our school so proud and ran so well. Just brilliant!

Mr. Percy is running after school computer programming classes every Tuesday. The program the children are using is an offline version of Scratch, which is a programming suite for children. This is an excellent initiative from Mr. Percy that is very well supported by the children. All twenty five computers in the school’s computer room are being used!
Later in the year Mr. Percy will be progressing with the children to program robots using Mindstorm software. Happy coding!
