Wishing all our pupils and their families a safe and fun-filled Hallowe'en. Thank you for your great efforts for the 'Make a Wish Foundation' on Friday 25th October. Your costumes were creative, interesting and varied. We hardly noticed that it rained all day - we just had great fun!
2018-2019 was a very busy and active year for us all. No wonder we were awarded our 'Active School' flag in June! Here is a selection of photos to remind us of some of the activities we enjoyed this year.
Wishing all our pupils and their families a well deserved rest. Have lots of fun over the summer. Be sure to recharge your batteries!

June has burst in and we are busy as bees finishing up our year's work and planning special events such as Sports Day and school tours. The sun shines some days, but whether or not, we work and play and enjoy the brighter days. This is the time of year when we really enjoy nature. Wishing you all a joyful June!
We had the pleasure of a fire engine visiting our school in April. All the infant classes got a chance to sit in the fire engine and talk to our local fire fighter, Carol Meehan. It was a great treat and learnt the numbers to call if we are in troule...112 or 999!!
Senior Infant were invited to attend a 'Story Hour' in Clonmel Library. The boys and girls were very excited to get on the bus and listen to three wonderful stories! Everyone listened so well and were engaged in the stories which were read by the librarian Stephanie. Afterwards we got a tour of the library and some time to choose a book and read! It was a great adventure for us all! The library is free to join for all families and offers lots of lovely fun activities for our children. Go on and take a trip down!
What fun the staff had on 3rd April planting an apple tree on the Suir Blueway just under the Convent Bridge. Thank you to Jeanette O'Dwyer for the idea and to Theresia Guschlbauer for bringing the materials and the tree! Thank you to everyone involved for the work and the laughs. The tree is planted beside the trees Rang 6 planted in December as part of Clonmel Applefest.
There are a number of sayings about planting trees, but here are two you might like.
The one who plants a tree plants hope.
He who plants a tree loves others beside himself (Thomas Fuller).
We celebrated World Book Day on Friday March 8th. We dressed up as some of our favourite characters from some of our favourite books and took part in lots of different reading activities throughout the day. Have a look at some of the girls from Rang 4 who put great effort into their costumes!
The girls in Rang 4 are taking part in the Junior Achiever programme, being run by Merck Sharp and Dohme. Each week they learn about a different element of running a successful business. Keep an eye out in the future for these budding entrepreneurs!
