Green Schools News

Our green schools committee have been very hard at work updating our Green Schools notice board and creating a sensory garden for all our students to enjoy. They also ensured that our plants were kept watered during our mid-term break by designing and installing an automatic watering system for our plants. There was great excitement to discover some birds nesting in a tree in our top courtyard. Well done to all the students and teachers involved with our green schools committee.


Hard Luck to our school hurling team who reached the semi-final of the Cumann na mBunscol hurling competition and were beaten by Tullow B.N.S.. They had beaten Ballon, Bishop Foley and the Gaelscoil to top their group and reach the semi-final stage. Well done boys, we are very proud of you!

Spikeball National Finals.

Yesterday our spikeball team made the trip to Dublin to take part in the Regional Spikeball Finals. We played so well, winning 4 out of 6 of our group games. This earned us a place in the semi finals with the winners of both semi finals progressing to the All Ireland Finals. Unfortunately the semi final result didn’t go our way. Well done to all who took part in Spikeball this year, to earn a place in the Regional Semi Final was a fantastic achievement! Visit our Active School Blog for more photos.
