Our pupils had a lovely treat today with the arrival of an ice cream van to the school. Every pupil was treated to a ’99’ ice cream cone to enjoy in the fabulous sunshine…even the teachers got to indulge.
The sound of the van’s jingle even made some of the boys and girls dance as they waited!!
Last Friday, the school and Early Focus project were delighted to accept the Mission Possible: School Achievement first place award for the promotion and support of positive mental health. Ms Flynn, Ms Hogan and Ms Curran, along with some of our pupils had the pleasure of accepting the award at a ceremony in St Patrick’s Hospital.

On Wednesday the 11th of November two members of the Irish army arrived at our school to present us with an Irish flag and our very own copy of the proclamation of the Irish Republic. We learnt how to look after our flag and what the colours represent. We also had a very special visitor, John Stephenson, whose grandfather fought at the GPO in 1916. He told us all about the rising and about all the interesting places in our locality where fighting actually took place. We had a great day.
