School Closure on Friday, February 26th
Parents and pupils are reminded that the school will be closed on Friday, February 26th due to the General Election taking place that day.
We were delighted to welcome back four of our past pupils this week to the school. Adelaide, Aoife, Katie and Stephanie spent a number of days with all the classes as part of their work experience programme in post primary school. We thank them for their hard work and wish them well in whatever career path they choose to follow in the future.
