Ms. Carroll's class were so excited to receive letters from their penpals in St. Paul's primary school in Navan. Each boy had a letter delivered to him and we are enjoying writing our letters back to our new friends.

Well done to Mr. Dillon and Mr Faherty’s Senior Whites who successfully retained the local derby cup for another year after holding off St Joseph’s in a thrilling draw on Monday. Well done to the boys who battled the ‘soft’ ground and tough conditions! Next up are Ballyroan in the League!

NCAD Come to Town

Students Ria and Dónal from the National College of Art and Design will visit Ms. O'Connor's class every Friday for a few weeks. Today the boys went berserk with clay making some Viking strongholds. Don't they look smashing?

Pictured is the Senior Navy who recorded the first win of the Cumann na mBunscol League over local rivals Bishop Galvin. Well done to the boys and their amazing skills, and to their managers, Eimear Brogan and Gráinne Corcoran. 4 teams will be fielded this year, with a development squad of 3rd class players. The time and effort of all (pupils, parents and teachers) is hugely appreciated.

Fourth Class Visit the Lab Gallery

Thanks to Liz Coman for organising a super trip for Mr. Coughlan's class to the Lab Gallery where they had the opportunity to view contemporary art and to have a go at it themselves. They used lunch box lids to create the pieces you see in the photos

Sprayline Sprays Clean

Our pillars and stonework got a makeover during the Easter break compliments of Daragh and Sprayline. If you're thinking of sprucing up the drive as part of your spring clean . . . . We also had our front yard lined for parking.
