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.
Our Book Fair will run from Monday 6 – Thursday 9 March in the school hall. This is a great opportunity for the boys to purchase books at very reasonable prices. In addition, a percentage of the profits made during the Book Fair is returned to the school in free books for our class libraries!
Our school will close on Friday, 17 February at 2:30pm for a mid-term break. It will re-open on Monday, 27 February at 8:50am. We wish all members of our school community an enjoyable break.
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.

On 17 January, 2014 our friend, colleague and teacher was taken from us suddenly. As we approach the third anniversary of Olivia’s passing, we remember her in a special way. Olivia was a kind, caring and hardworking teacher. As a friend and colleague, Olivia was extremely generous, thoughtful and considerate. Olivia is sadly missed and fondly remembered by all who knew her. Ní bheidh a leithéid arís ann.
