Up at the Quack of Dawn

The feather forecast was good so Ms. Purcell's boys headed for the river with their newly acquired rubber ducks for the duck race.
Stay tuned - rumour has it they're making a duckumentary on the big event!!

Boys and their Ties!!!

Mr. Réamonn's boys decided to redesign the school tie!

Patios Get a Mooney Makeover

With a little help from our secondary school friends, Ms. Mooney has given the patios a new lease of life. Now floored with attractive astro, brightly painted walls and some summer sunshine it's just a lovely place in which to listen and learn.

3rd and 4th Class Tournament - FINAL

Well done to all the boys who took part in this hotly contested tournament in Bushy Park over the last two weeks. Particular congratulations are due to the "Dublin" team for lifting the trophy after a gruelling battle with their rivals, "Faughs".
Dave Farrelly (our school's Games Promotion Officer) from Templeogue Synge St. was on hand to present the medals to the finalists on the last day of the competition. With the strong performances displayed by these players, our school teams look destined for more silverware in the Autumn!

The reputation of the annual choir barb-b continues to grow. Ms. Purcell's burgers are now reportedly infused with special singeing singing oils (the constituents of which are known only to Ms. Purcell) that have been proven to have their partakers producing the most dulcet tones in English, Irish, French, Italian . . .
