We had our annual Jersey Day last Friday. It was an enjoyable day with all pupils participating in sporting activities in the hall. Well done to Sophie, Ava, Timmy, Seán, Madisan, Cian, Erika, Naoise, James and Isobel who won prizes. A huge thanks to everyone who donated money for the purchase of P.E. equipment. We collected €250.00.
Our boys’ rounders’ team lost narrowly in the semi-finals last Friday. I am very proud of their efforts, They played really well. Many decisions went against them on the day but they represented the school and their families excellently.
