Amber Flag Award – We just received notification today that our school is one of the schools that has been awarded the Pieta Amber Flag for 2024. We have received the award for the huge effort we have put in this year at our school to create a healthy, inclusive environment that supports the mental well-being of all in our community. Congratulations to all the staff, pupils and parents. This is a great achievement and so well deserved. A special thank you to Ms. Aoife Corcoran, Ms Caitríona Woodcock and Ms. Rachel Curran and all the children on the Wellbeing Committee for the trojan work they put in in pursuit of the flag. We look forward to having a flag raising ceremony in the coming weeks.

Second Hand Uniform Sale – Our Second-Hand Uniform Sale is taking place tomorrow Friday 7th June in the school hall at 9.00am. There will be a second sale at 2.40pm for the parents of our new Junior Infants. With the cost of living going up, this is a great opportunity to bag a bargain.  A big thank you to Sheena and Aoife from the PA for organising this event.

Junior Infant Visit – We are looking forward to welcoming our new Junior Infants to the school tomorrow Friday 7th June. Such an exciting day for the children and their families. The boys and girls are so ready for their transition into ‘Big School’ on Thursday 29th August. We just know they are going to love it here.


  • Soccer Stars in the Making Congratulations to the twelve girls from 6th class who took on St. Laurence’s NS in an 11 a side friendly soccer match today away from home beating them 2-0.

Fingers crossed the weather stays fine
