Remembering Ms Olivia Clinton

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.

Movie Day Fundraiser !

On Wednesday 14th of December The Student Council held our first ever fundraising activity. We invited all the pupils of our school to attend a Movie Day in the PE hall. The boys all paid €2.50 and they got to watch a Christmas movie. Everybody also got a bag of treats.

It was a huge success! We raised €1081.95. We are so excited to put this money towards buying giant playground games for the Junior and Senior yards.

We would like to thank our Principal, Ms. Brangan and all the teachers for letting us hold this event.

We would also like to thank all of the pupils and parents who contributed so generously. Without your generosity it wouldn’t have been such a success. Everyone really enjoyed the films and had a great day.

We hope this is the first of many Student Council events.

Thank you,

The Student Council
