All classes went on their school tours on Thursday June 20th.
Junior Infants to 1st Class visited Tearaways Pet Farm and Activity Centre near Birr, while 2nd to 6th travelled to Croke Park and went on the Viking Splash Tour.
We held our end of year celebration at our annual Open Day on Friday June 14th. A large crowd of parents, grandparents, past pupils and neighbours watched all classes play music, sing and dance. We congratulated our 6th Class for completing their eight years with us and wished them all the very best for the future. We also raised our 6th Green Flag.
There was lots of fun activity on Tuesday June 18th as we held our Sport’s Day.
4th to 6th Classes have been working with artist and insect lover Nessa Darcy over the past few months. Together they have learned lots about insects and bees and their importance in the pollination process. They have created some lovely artwork and have sung this song which contains an important message.
Some of the artwork is on display in the village phone box.

Workshop for Parents
This information session will explore some of the key elements in preparing your child for post-primary school. For first time parents, the session will give you an understanding of what secondary school is like. We’ll look at ways in which parents can support their child through this time bearing in mind that going to First Year also coincides with adolescence for a young person.
The session will also give a brief overview of the new Junior Cert and provide some website links where parents can keep on top of developments as their child moves forward. Furthermore, we will briefly look at the structure of parent/teacher meetings, home school communication and people your child might meet in post primary school.
Venue: Central Hotel Tullamore
