Year Book

The Year Book for 2006/ 07 was launched on Wednesday, 20 June. Congratulations to the pupils and teachers who were involved in this tremendous production. There are still some copies available at the school and they are priced at €12. This is a great opportunity to have a permanent record of the events which occurred during 1 year at St Colmcille’s BNS.

Pupils in 6th Class

We take this opportunity to wish the pupils in 6th Class well as they commence their post-primary education. We thank the boys and their parents for their support and co-operation during the past 8 years. To mark the end of their primary education, parents and pupils are invited to the Graduation Mass which will be held in St Colmcille’s Church at 11.15 a.m. on Tuesday, 26 June.
