Anti-Bullying Concert

On Friday 7th May our School Choir held their first concert in conjunction with our Anti-Bullying team. The concert and songs were focused on friendship and happiness. The Anti-Bullying team awarded prizes for their colouring and poetry competitions. We look forward to more concerts in the future after this successful debut!


Darren Sweetnam -Project Spraoi

On Thursday 6th April we were fortunate to have Munster Rugby player Darren Sweetnam visit our school as part of Project Spraoi. Darren played games with us and answered questions about being a professional rugby player. He also gave away prizes thanks to Skechers. We thank CIT for their continued work with Project Spraoi and thanks to Darren for giving up his time to visit us.


Whole School Food Policy

Our school has a new Whole School Food Policy that has been created with the input of children, parents and teachers. Our Health Promotion team worked hard on the policy and we are very proud to implement this in our school. Below we are sharing with you, the foods not allowed, the foods to be avoided, and the foods to be encouraged. We hope that as a school community we can use this new policy to make our school healthier!


Green Flag for Transport

On Wednesday 15th March we will hold our First ‘Walk on Wednesday’ where children, parents and teachers will meet at the entrance to Ros Ard estate and walk to the school. Children can wear green on the day to mark the event which will also tie in with dressing in green for St. Patrick’s Day.

Below you will see ideas on how you can do your bit to make things safer outside the school gate. Please help us to make the journey to and from school as safe as possible for your children.
