School News

Today was a busy day of awards for our students. In addition to our weekly Star of the Week and Gaeilgeoir na Seachtaine awards, every child in the school received a Student Attendance Award in recognition of the amazing effort they have made to attend school in this difficult year.

We also had our attendance medal which we gave out to those children with 100% attendance. We understand that this has been a difficult year to achieve 100% attendance due to the Covid Guidelines. We also really appreciate the effort every parent/guardian has put into following these guidelines to keep our school safe. Thank you all for your support with this. It is because of everyone’s cooperation that we have had a very successful first term back in school for everyone.
