Jubilee Fun Day

St. Pius had a wonderful day of celebration on Friday 19th June to mark the school's 50th birthday - bouncy castles, ice-cream and warm weather - what more could you ask for? Many thanks to the Parents' Association for its generous contribution and thanks Ms. Lally for the super photos . . . not forgetting Mrs. O'Kelly and Ms. Gallagher for the terrific face painting.

Kian won the Dublin and District Schoolboys Soccer League U11A1 with Leicester Celtic. A super win; well done, Kian.

Guess what Matthew is holding . . . it's a block of shredded 50 euro notes from the Central Bank. Ms. Dunne gave him three euro for guessing that there's almost 15,000 euro worth of notes in the block. He's taking it home for the weekend to see if he can unshred them!!!

Thomas received a very important letter in the post - an invitation from Cumann na mBunscol to play hurling at National level in Croke Park on Sunday 6th September, All Ireland Final day!!! Well done Thomas.

Conor in Ms. Stewart's second class won Chief Scout Award . . . and just look at the super project he created. Wow! What a marvellous start to the summer, Conor. Well done.
