First Holy Communion 2019

On May 19th second class girls from Rooms 10 and 13 and 17 made their First Holy Communion.  It was a wonderful occasion. Father Scriven said Mass. The choir sang beautifully. After Mass there was coffee, tea and treats in the school. After that everybody celebrated with their proud parents and families. A big thank you to Fr Scriven, Sr Maria, Mrs Millea, Ms Mc Carthy, Mrs O’ Shea and Mrs Fitzpatrick for all their work and preparation, which ensured that the day was a great success.

On Monday May 20th the girls came in to school in their finery to get their photographs taken by Ben Power from hotzphotography. Everybody was looking fabulous as they did a parade around the school. You will treasure your group photograph of your friends and classmates, when you get older!

Junior Infants First School Tour

Friday May 17th was a big day for the boys and girls in Rooms 1, 2 and 3. They headed off in big busses to Nore Valley farm. Some little people were up since 6am! By all accounts the chicks were the favourite, followed by the donkeys and of course going on the bus!


We can’t wait to go on the bus for our first school tour.

The best seats are at the front!
