Senior GAA Semi final

Our Senior GAA team took on St.Pats, Skerries today in an exciting encounter! The score was very close in the end with the girls narrowly defeated by a few points. (final score 3-4 to 0-9). The girls were nine points behind at half time and that margin proved too much even with a heroic second half performance from our team, scoring five more points than our opponents. Well done girls for your commitment to training and playing games throughout the year. Fantastic achievement for both you and your mentors to reach the semi-finals. Thanks to parents who supported the girls at the games during the year.

Senior GAA Semi-final

Table Quiz Fundraiser

The Parents Association were very busy the past few months preparing for our Table Quiz night in Parnells GAA club on April 6th. There was a fantastic turnout on the night with lots of fabulous prizes on offer! The school would like to offer our sincere thanks to all of the parents who worked so hard to ensure the Quiz night was a success. We would also like to thank all the local businesses for sponsoring tables and donating prizes. Lastly, thank you to all those parents who were in attendance on the night and to those who offered their support in the lead up to the event. Your support will make a big difference to the school, raising much needed funds for our new computer room.

THANK YOU!

Active Week Activities!

Everyone is enjoying Active Week this week! The classes are participating in so many activities - Tag Rugby, tennis, Tae Kwando, badminton, basketball, GAA, dancing, skipping, yoga, cricket, pilates, dodgeball, ultimate frisbee among others! Parents and grandparents have also taken part in our Wake Up Shake Up dances on Monday & Friday as well as teaching the girls some playground games. On Wednesday, each class participated in an Active Picnic - (no food involved!) - instead of food there was a wide variety of activities in the yard including tug-o-war, an obstacle course, welly boot throwing, hoops and lots more! 

Teachers, parents and pupils will all be very tired at the end of this week after being so active! Well done to everyone for getting involved!
