Well done to our girls and boys who represented the school on a very wet day in CIT last week. Again we brought home trophies and medals this year with Jamie O’Driscoll coming 3rd in the County Final and our boys really team coming 2nd in their final. Well done to all and thank you to parents and teachers who helped on the day!
Our Health Promoting Team have just finished our Healthy Body Health Mind Focus Week and it has been a great success. The children partook in yoga classes, positive mental health workshops, gratuity exercises in class, smoothie tasting, active homework and much much more. This was followed up with Mindfulness sessions in the school during the past week. A huge thank you to Ms. O’Brien and Mrs. Murphy for their efforts and to all the HPS Team for a fantastic week!

Our Rang 2 made their First Communion on Saturday 27th May in St. Michael’s Church. It was a lovely day and the children were a credit to themselves and their families. Our Parent Association held their annual party in the Community Hall and we thank them for their great support. Well done to all the boys and girls and to their teachers and all who helped prepare for a wonderful day!
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!
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.
