Well done to all the children who took part in the Easter Competition and thank you to the parents who supported it. We raised €548 and this will go towards activities for the children throughout the year. We have included some examples of the fantastic art entered.

School Communion 18th May (GNS) 25th May (BNS) Help Needed!

The JPA support the school in catering for the parents and children after Mass. If you are free to volunteer on the morning of the communion to serve tea and coffee, please let your class representative know. We also rely on your donations of cakes. You can drop cakes to the GNS the day before and on the morning of the communion. As the election is on the 24th, non-perishable items can be dropped to the BNS on Thursday 23rd and on the morning of the communion. Many thanks.
