Golf has teed off in St Pius X for our 6th class boys with our resident Pro Mr Ryan dishing out the tips. The boys will do a number of sessions in the hall with the golf equipment that was kindly donated before moving down to the S​pawell driving range and pitch and putt.

Bevin and Suzanne of our astounding PA present a cheque to Mr. Lynch in the sum of 22,775euro. Wow! Funds such as these are always welcome. In the last six months alone we were able to put new floors in the infants' rooms, put a new floor in our PE hall and have it painted and install an internal telephone / announcement system in every classroom . . . . and lots more besides. Thank you to all who support our PA and please continue to do so.
