June 2018

June was a really busy month for all of us at school. We had school tours, trips to the Castle Park, Junior Sports Day, Bake Sale and of course the Sixth Class play. We would like to thank  Ms Deasy, the staff, all the boys and girls in our school for a great year. We wish those of you going to the CBS, to Second level and other schools all the best in the future. We would like to thank our wonderful Parent Council for all their hard work and support throughout the year. Who wants to be a Thousandaire, was a brilliant success, the cheque for a whopping €25,000 was given to Ms Deasy on June 28th. We will see the fruits of your labour, when we return to a resurfaced Junior yard next year. Have a wonderful Summer, hope the sun continues to shine. See you on August 30th. Slán agus beannacht.
