Our Girls’ Gaelic football team are playing in Skryne this Thursday against Killyon at 1.00p.m. They will be leaving the school at 12.35p.m. Please organise a lift for your child if you can’t attend yourself. The girls are through to the quarter-final but a win would result in them going through automatically to the semi-final.
The boys’ football team are already through to the semi-final and don’t have a game this week.
Parents’ Association A.G.M.
I have been invited to attend the Parents’ Association A.G.M. on October 11th at 7.30p.m. in the school. A vibrant Parents’ Association is vital for our school. We are expecting a big turnout. We hope that at least one member of each household is present on the night.

To celebrate Ireland’s great achievement of reaching the World Cup quarter-final we will have a Jersey Day this Friday ahead of this Saturdays huge match against the All Blacks. We would like the children to wear an Ireland jersey if they have one. If not any jersey or green tee shirt will do.
