A number of hampers containing all manner of games/toys/treats for children but also including “goodies” for the adults will be given as prizes. Those wishing to support this very worthy cause  can purchase tickets from the school. Further information available from or on facebook (karenfentonovariancancerfund)

Our Parents’ Assoc. will hold a “Book Swap” fundraiser in the Scout Den on Monday with all proceeds used to purchase PE equipment.

Our Sports Day survived a dodgy weather forecast on Monday last and saw all classes derive great enjoyment from the activity stations dotted around the playing pitch. Infant classes must surely have slept well on Tuesday night, having spent another day enjoying their own particular outdoor activities.

Ranganna 3 agus 4 enjoyed a marvellous school tour at the West Cork Secret activity centre  in Kilbrittain on Wednesday last. Thug rang a sé agaidh ar Ros Cairbre. Ní fada uainn an samhradh agus turasanna cois farraige!

A team of chess players represented the school at the Primary Chess Blitz in Greenmount while ranganna a dó, trí agus a ceathair enjoyed a cricket session before accepting some wonderful new equipment from Cricket Ireland and the Cork Sports Partnership.

Many thanks to all who have dropped used/unwanted clothing etc. to the school in aid for our “Cash For Clobber” collection. Nár laga Dia sibh!
