Walk on Wednesday!!

On Wednesday the 15th of February both staff and students took part in our first Walk on Wednesday. This was organised by the Ms. Mahon and her very hard working Green School Committee. 

As you can see from the pictures we had two empty car parks and it was great to see the whole school take part on the day.

Well done to Ms. Mahon and her Green School Committee for all the work they put into organising the day.

Last Friday the whole school took part in Operation Transformation’s 10@10. We had great fun taking part in a short Zumba session in the yard.


In the run up to Christmas, we were joined once again by Maria, a very talented lady, for some flower arranging classes. The classes proved to be very popular and we have some very talented parents in our school. Well done to all the parents who attended the classes and showed such great talent. If you are interested in attending a flower arranging class, contact Yvonne in the school or Sr Rita in the Haven.

Christmas Carol Singing

The school choir have been extra busy this year bringing lovely Christmas Carols all over Dublin!

The choir have performed in various places but most notably raising money for the school in Marks and Spencers in Dundrum Shopping Centre as well as the Black Santa Charity Fundraiser outside St. Anne’s Church on Dawson Street.

Well done to the choir who can now take a well deserved break from performing over their two weeks off!

Nativity Play 2016

On Wednesday the 14th of December, Ms. Mahon and Ms. Ryan’s 1st Classes took to the stage under the directorship of Mrs. Barrer to perform the Nativity Play. The boys and girls put on an absolutely fantastic show and they all looked lovely in their costumes.

They were also joined by the school choir and children playing percussion instruments who all sounded fantastic!
