This morning (16th May 2019), all classes travelled to “Bricks4kids” in Santry and later to “The Zone” soft play/bowling centre in Celbridge.

The children were inspired to create some very interesting pieces from LEGO, work with motors and race their vehicles. They worked well in groups and were all well behaved.. Many thanks to Sandra, Neville and Gemma who accompanied us today.

All pupils and some preschool age children enjoyed our annual Christmas party. Each child received a selection box and a present from Santa and played lots of traditional games.
On the Wednesday night of Christmas week, the children performed in a Carol service and presented the congregation with bags of cookies which they had baked and decorated in school. We also raised €85 for the Laura Lynn hospice for children by wearing our Christmas jumpers to school.

All pupils came to school dressed in their Halloween costumes. They enjoyed a party later in the day where they played various Halloween games. Our rector, Ven. N. O’Raw picked his favourite costumes from each classroom and awarded them with a little treat.
