Our multicultural evening will take place on Tuesday, 4 April from 7-9 p.m. in the school hall. All parents are welcome to attend this wonderful evening of great food from around the world. There will also be face painting, lucky envelope draw, great raffle prizes and goody bags for sale.
We still have places available if parents would like to cook. We would like to have as many cultures as possible represented. Also, if any parent has an unwanted gift they would like to donate towards our raffle, it can be left in to school office between 8.50 a.m. and 3.00 p.m.
We look forward to meeting you on the 4 April.

Well done to the members of our Quiz Team who took part in the Leinster Final of the Credit Unions’ Quiz on Saturday 4 March. The boys answered a fantastic 80 questions correctly, but unfortunately that wasn’t enough to qualify for the All-Ireland final. Many thanks to the boys, their parents and teachers for their hard work and commitment over the past few months.
Congratulations to our quiz team who performed superbly last Saturday to qualify for the next round! The boys answered some really difficult questions correctly and we are very proud of their excellent performance throughout the competition.
We wish them the very best of luck in the next round.
Congratulations to the boys who took part in the Credit Unions’ Quiz on Sunday 5 February in Fingallians GAA Club. Best of luck in the next round!

St Colmcille’s vs St Cronan’s
St Colmcille’s played St Cronan’s in Swords Celtic and the match kicked off at three o’clock. A bright opening from the hosts led to Jack Doyle chipping the ball over the on rushing St Cronan’s keeper. It was pass and go for a while until a delightful Callum Newman cross was met by a powerful Sean Roughan-Curtin volley which beat the keeper. About 10 minutes later, an unfortunate pass led to St Cronan’s, Felix Santos, to score in the bottom corner. At half time St Colmcille’s held the upper hand with the score 2-1 and in the second half introduced two fresh players. Shane O’Connor came on for Callum Newman and Dylan Malloy replaced Cian Dempsey. At the start of the second half, St. Colmcille’s raced out of the blocks. A delightful Jack Doyle cross was met by Jack Tynan to head the hosts 3-1 in front. A few minutes later, a tackle to Sean Biggins presented St. Colmcille’s with a free kick which the same player curled beautifully into the top corner. Sean Biggins then made it 5-1 from the penalty spot following a handball. This soon became six, following quick thinking from Dylan Fox who rounded the keeper before rolling the ball into the empty net. Eoghan Leahy then replaced Shane O’Connor and the same player received a delightful James Doyle pass and shot into to the bottom corner. St. Cronan’s never gave up and battled until the end and were rewarded with their second goal before a richly deserved Shane O’Connor effort made it 8-2 shortly before the final whistle blew.
