On 11th April students from 4th, 5th and 6th Classes performed in the National Children’s Choir concert in Kilkenny. They worked hard all year to learn the songs and performed brilliantly on the night. It was a very enjoyable night for everyone who attended.
On the 27th May some of the students from 4th,5th and 6th Classes took part in the National Children’s Choir concert in the National Concert Hall in Dublin. It was an amazing experience and the children were all fantastic. Here are some photographs from before the concert when the children were waiting nervously for it to begin.
Well done to the Fifth and Sixth Class basketball team who did us proud playing against First Years from Presentation Secondary. It was a thrilling match from start to finish! Congrats to the First Years who beat us by a narrow margin!

Pupils from Sixth Class enjoyed a very enjoyable trip to Dublin recently. They visited Kilmainham Gaol where they learned lots of interesting facts. It was a great trip and really brought history to life.
Well done to all the girls who competed at the Primary Schools Athletics. They demonstrated fantastic effort and were great ambassadors for our school. Three of our girls made it out of their heats for the finals of the 80m, which is a huge achievement as there were hundreds of competitors. We had a bronze medal in the Under 9 80metres final! All the girls that competed in the longer distance ran really well with a silver and a bronze in the Under 11 500metres! The Under 11 team then went on to win bronze in the 4x100m relay. We had a great team in the Over 12 relay also. Well done girls….you were a credit to our school and did us all proud!
