p1140355The student council accepted a very special Trócaire award today on behalf of the whole school. Over the past 23 years our school community has donated an incredible €71,000 to Trócaire.  This money has benefited the lives of millions of people in over 20 countries worldwide. Trócaire presented this award to only 30 schools in Ireland in recognition of their outstanding support for their work. Ms.  Josephine Crowley received a special thanks for her tireless assistance in collecting Trócaire boxes and money over the years.

Coding is very popular with the boys and we it is made even more attractive now with the integration of Star Wars, Minecraft, Flappy Birds and Moana. Hour of Code week is supported by many of the world's celebrities in sport and IT. We will be following this up with some Scratch coding. 20161205_134349
