School Activities

Book Fair:  Our book fair takes place in the school in mid November each year. Children have the option to purchase a range of books. 

 

Green  Schools:  We are working towards our Waste/litter Green flag. We expect to be awarded this flag in May 2018

 

Active Flag:   We have been awarded the Active School Flag.  Throughtout the school year we arrange various tournaments between all the pupils - soccer, gaelic football etc. and run the competitions off at lunch time.

 

Credit Union Table Quiz:  Every year we enter a number of teams in the local credit union quiz.  Our school has had great success in the local and chapter level credit union quiz.  We were delighted to represent this Credit Union Chapter at the National Credit Union Quiz Finals on a number of occasions.

 

Credit Union Art Competition:  Every year all the children in the school enter this competition and we have had great success at local level.

 

Computer training for senior classes:  In conjunction with St. Mogue's College Bawnboy, our senior classes are lucky enough to avail of the wonderful IT facilities in St Mogue's College once a week for a six week period in the final term.  It is a great learning experience for all involved and the programme will hopefully continue well in to the future

 

Football Coaching:   The G.A.A. Coach attends the school on Thursdays (or Fridays) for the middle and senior classes.

 

School Tour:  Each year we arrange a fun activity based school tour usually incorporating water and land based adventure activities.  The children thoroughly enjoy these outings.
