We are very excited to be one of 150 schools in the country that will be part of this Arts Council initiative for schools to engage with the arts and creativity. We will need the help of the school community with this in the coming months - watch this space!

We had a very important visitor to our school recently, our local MEP Deirdre Clune. She talked to us about the work she does for us in Europe. We are working towards getting a Blue Star for our school learning about Europe!
"Success starts with attendance" Please take a minute to read this very useful leaflet put together by the local schools on the importance of attendance. EVERY DAY COUNTS 2019
