School Book Fair
As reading is the cornerstone of the Curriculum we at all times actively encourage reading. On the 12th of May we will welcome Celtic Travelling Books to our school so that we can continue to promote books and reading. Our Book Fair will take place over 3 days with 15% of all books purchased being returned to the school in the hope of restocking and updating our libraries.* We also recently purchased books for the Senior and Middle Libraries from Eddie Jennings and Co.

ASD Training Day
On the 29th of April last Ms. Yvonne Purcell and Ms. Emma McSwiney of the  NCSE visited our school to present the latest findings and information to our entire staff on ASD.This was a very informative and worthwhile course which gave everyone encouragement and guidance on ASD going forward.

Yes to Languages
The Senior classes will begin a 6 week course shortly on Sign Language. This forms part of a new Government initiative entitled “Say Yes to Languages ” in which the Senior classes will decide on a language and embrace that language for a period of time encouraging inclusion,participation and skill.
