Welcome to our website
We wish all of our children and their families a very happy and safe summer.
School will re-open for Junior Infants on Wednesday, 31st August (9am - 12 noon) and on September 1st for everyone. We will see you all then.
5th class were treated to an art demonstration by the renowned artist Padraig McCaul this afternoon as he painted a unique and beautiful painting of our local church (the finished article will be shared at a later date!).
Padraig's son Tom is currently in 5th Class. He and his family moved here from Achill Island at the start of the school year and we are so lucky to have the McCauls in our school community.
The children asked Padraig lots of interesting questions and they were undoubtedly inspired by Padraig’s stories and skills as a “real life artist” ! 🎨 👨🏼🎨🖼
Thank you Padraig 🌟
