All three Sixth Classes are taking part in this years Junior Entrepreneur Project. They have divided into small groups and come up with a business idea. They have invited in a local business woman: ‘The Wreckless Chef’ and learned about how to set up and run their own mini company. The girls are learning the value of hard work as they sold their products at our school craft fair. Many made a profit and they all donated some proceeds to Make a Wish Foundation.
Congratulations to the pupils and teachers from First Class on a wonderful Grandparents’ Day Ceremony. The girls were so well prepared. They read their prayers confidently and sang like angels. It was so uplifting. Thank you for all the hard work.
Also a big thank you to Ms Fetton for covering the teas and buns! WELL DONE ALL.
Well done to the pupils from Fourth Class who performed the Christmas Story at our annual Pageant in St. Paul’s Church. The great acting and beautiful singing really brought the story to life for us.

Well done to our school choir from 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th Class who sang at the Christmas Stars Concert in St. Johns Church under the direction of Ms Tobin.

A special mass was celebrated in St. Paul’s Church to mark Presentation Day 2019. Pupils from both the Primary and Secondary Schools participated in the mass and their beautiful singing really added to the occasion.

Fifth and Sixth Class Classes recently took part in a Two Touch Rugby Programme with Brian from Waterford Sports Partnership. This is part of the 20/20 campaign – an initiative to increase female participation in sport.

On Tuesday last, September 17th, the school’s cross country running team competed in the Waterford Primary Schools Cross Country races at the R.S.C. We had children from 1st Class up to Sixth Class take part. The sun shone and the children ran their hearts out doing themselves and their school very proud. We had numerous medal winners and great fun on the day. It was fantastic to see all the children supporting each other and shouting each other on. A special mention has to go to the girls from Fifth and Sixth Class who were a great help with the younger children. Well done everyone!
