Halloween 2023

On Friday October 27th our school will close for midterm break at 1:40pm for Infants and at 2:40pm for all other classes.

There will be a Halloween Disco for all children in the Community Hall during school hours organised by our Parents Association and all children are invited to dress up if they so wish.

School will reopen at the usual time for all children on Monday November 6th.

Happy Halloween to all our families.

Walk to School Week

Next week is National Walk to Schools Week with Wednesday being National Walk on Wednesday.


This is part of the Green School Initiative and we encourage all families to make an extra effort next week to walk part of their journey to school.


We have the perfect facility for Park and Stride and encourage all families to park at the church and walk to the school gate.


For those that live close enough we encourage you to walk the full route to school.


Our Green School Committee will be keeping record of all the pupils in their class that walk all or some of the way to school and there will be a reward for our walking champions at the end of the week.


Hopefully the weather will allow us all to participate.

Marathon Kids


Our 6th Class pupils recently completed the Marathon Kids program in conjunction with Sports Active Wexford.

Over an 8 week period the class ran various distances each day that all added up to 26.2 miles total.

They received medals and t-shirts for their efforts and got to meet Irish Olympian and Marathon Kids ambassador David Gillick.
