Swimming for Fourth, Fifth and Sixth classes start after the Mid-Term break on Tuesdays for five weeks. The cost of the five lessons (including bus) is €35.00. Please send in the money in an envelope as soon as possible. Thanks to the Parents’ Association for supporting swimming in the school. Their contribution of €1000 towards the cost of buses this year significantly reduces the price for families.


This Wednesday is the last of this term’s four sessions in computers. If you haven’t paid the €5.00 per child please do so by Wednesday February 5th. We hope to have Colm back again soon.

The two winning schools will win €50,000 to develop their playing facilities. Ten other schools will win €10,000 to develop their playing facilities. If you’re not in you can’t win !!
