To raise some much needed funds for the development of a new AstroTurf pitch at our school we are running a Big Money Draw. We hope that everyone will support this fundraiser. The pitch will be a huge asset to our school – it will provide an all weather terrain for lots of sporting activitites for all of the children. See this page for more details and how to enter.

Thanks to those of you who attended and to Mr Minnock for attending, and delivering the Principal’s Address to update the meeting on progress in the school.
The meeting was followed by the election of 2 parent representatives to the Board of Management. Congratulations to Emma Caffrey and John Finney who were elected to the board. And thank you to Ciara McQuaid who stepped down from her position after serving a 4-year term.
MONTHLY NO UNIFORM DAY
We are continuing to run the monthly No Uniform Day that started in 2022.
It will take place on the last Friday of each month. The cost per child will be just €2 with a €4 cap per family.
The children can wear their own clothes to school on these days and all monies raised will go towards something that benefits all the children.
Quiz Night Fundraiser
We decided it was time the adults got a chance to have some fun for a change. And that we did!
We had a great night at our table quiz with lots of laughs, a drink or too and we even answered some quiz questions!
Thanks to everyone who took part. We appreciate the participation and look forward to making this a regular event in our fundraising calendar.
A special word of thanks is due to The Kilberry who looked after us so well and even provided food for the occasion.
Thanks also to Andy O’Reilly who was our quiz master on the night. And thank you to those parents who sponsored a quiz round.
We managed to raise €1405.

Thanks to the bakers and everyone who donated treats for the sale. Thanks to the loom band makers who sold bracelets and raised €122.10 for their efforts. Thanks to the children and parents who helped with sales and to the teachers and SNAs who brought all the children up to the sale during school time. And thanks to the parents who bought treats or sent in money with their children. We really appreciate the help and support.
