U10 Football Blitz

Our U10′s football team travelled to Hawkfield on Thursday, 11th June to take part in the annual Schools’ blitz. The children had an enjoyable day, practising their football skills, meeting new friends, and….they even got to play one of their games on an inflatable football pitch! Thanks to Mr.O’Sullivan for coaching the team on the day and to our SNA, Niamh for travelling to support the children.

First Holy Communion-School Mass

Fr. Tanham celebrated a very special mass in our school for the First Communicants on Monday, 25th May. It was a beautiful mass, enriched by the children’s readings, prayers, and by the lovely songs that were sung.
Congratulations and well done to all involved.
