Our school sports evening will take place at the VEC Grounds on Templeogue Rd on Weds Jun. 12th at 6.30pm
Last week we were delighted to welcome 15 boys and girls from Escola Sant Ignasi in Sarria, Barcelona. Among the activities they took part in were a table quiz, a concert, a hurling coaching session and an international foodfest! It was a great opportunity for our boys to make new friends.

Ms.O’Riordan, Ms. Maher, Ms. Tynan and Ms. Rooney were delighted with the beautiful performances of their classes at Córfhéile in the National Basketball Arena last night. Our special thanks to Ms. Maher who is one of the main organisers of the event which goes on all week with hundreds of schools involved.
Well done to our athletes from 5th and 6th class who were the overall winners of the boys cup at the National Indoor Arena in Abbotstown yesterday. We wish to thank Melina who paid us a flying visit from Munich to give some last minute coaching in Abbotstown and to get some of our classes moving at school today. There are a few more cross country events in the next few weeks so hopefully everybody is getting up to peak fitness!
We were delighted and honoured to have Holocaust surivor Tomi Reichental visit the school today to speak to boys from 5th & 6th class. When Tomi was a young boy in Slovakia his family were rounded up by the Nazis and taken to Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.
