Welcome back everybody, we hope you all enjoyed the Easter break and are ready for another busy last term.
On Saturday April 21st our sixth class girls celebrated their Confirmation with CBS 6th class boys and Mother of Fair Love boys and girls. The 5th class choir and Seamus Brennan’s choir sang beautifully. Bishop Dermot Farrell presided over a lovely ceremony. It was a beautiful day to celebrate with family and friends.
A big thank you to their teachers for all their work in preparing the girls. Thank you to fifth class and Mrs Fitzpatrick for the choir. We hope you all had a wonderful day.
April 11th-Fifth Class-Junior Entrepreneur Programme
Fifth classes in Rooms 14 and 15 worked very hard on their Junior Entrepreneur Programme this year. They designed their product “Cuddly Buds”, and spent over a month producing them. On Wednesday April 11th Cuddly buds went on sale in Room 14. It was a fantastic success. Fifth class were delighted with the number of sales for their product, which had been marketed successfully throughout the school.
A big thank you to Ms O’ Meara for all her work in this programme. The girls are looking forward to spending their profit on their trip to the RDS in Dublin in June, and giving some of their proceeds to charity.
We have all been very busy here in The Pres this term. Lots of activities have been taking place inside and outside the classrooms.
Credit Union Quiz: 4th 5th and 6th class girls took part in the quiz in Cillin Hill in February. It was the largest ever quiz with 72 teams taking part. Our teams did very well and received a lovely goodie bag.
Junior Entrepreneur: fifth class are taking part in Junior Entrepreneur. There were six groups in the class, and they had a variety of business ideas. Following a Dragon’s Den presentation, it was decided that Squishies Stressball would be the most marketable product. The class are now busy with the production phase.
Spikeball: 6th class took part in the County Spikeball Finals in January. They performed very well, and reached the Semi finals. Well Done girls.

Seachtain na Gaeilge
Bhí Seachtain na Gaeilge iontach againn. Rinne gach éinne an iarracht Gaeilge a labhairt timpeall na scoile. Bhi tráth na gceist againn gach lá agus bhíomar go léir sa halla ag baint taitneamh as na dánta, na hamhráin, an ceol, rincí agus Seo Faisean. Bhí céilí mór againn freisin.
Lá Mór sa Halla
