Award Ceremony

Well done to all the boys who received their awards of excellence from Principal Mrs. Kelly. A special word of thanks to our wonderful parent’s council which has raised over ten thousand euros which will go towards our new fantastic astro- turf pitch. Just brilliant!


New Green School Sign

Well done to our very active Green School’s Committee, who have created a new school sign using recycled one and two cent coins. It looks just marvellous!

School Fete

Well done to everyone who made our school fete such an outstanding success. The children had a brilliant time with face painting, penalties, bouncy castles, raffles, cake stalls etc. Close on 3,000 euros was raised on the day.
Just brilliant!!

Active Schools Week

 Holy Family Boys School enjoyed a fun filled Active Schools Week last week.  We are one of the very few schools in Carlow with an Active Flag.  The Active Schools Flag is awarded to schools that strive to achieve a physically educated and physically active school community.  We are currently working towards achieving our second flag.
Our Active School Week included active homework, active clothing, a ‘no console’ week, healthy eating lessons along with water safety and road safety lessons.  Pupils participated in many different sports and activities throughout the week such as Sportshall Athletics in St. Laurence O’Tooles, dance with Aoife from Dowsa Dance School, Zumba with Linda, Swimming, Hurling, Tennis with Carlow Tennis Club, Karate with Carlow Karate Club, Kickboxing demonstration from Larry’s Kickboxing Club, Cricket with Carlow Cricket Club, Indoor Rowing, Basketball, Orienteering, Tug of War and an ‘Old School Sports Day’.  We had a Sports Quiz and pupils and all staff members were encouraged to drop everything and Dance for five minutes every day.  ‘Fair Play’ Awards were given to boys who showed great sportsmanship and who encouraged others.
Needless to say both pupils and teachers both thoroughly enjoyed the week.  Here in Holy Family BNS our Active School Committee encourage all staff and pupils to be active for at leaset 60 minutes every day.
Well done to all involved.
