28 Feb


Well done to our latest students of the week. The teachers, when announcing their individual class winners spoke so highly of each of the pupils.

Some of the students chosen this week could get the award every week such is the standard of their work and application!

Other’s have made a huge improvement, displayed great maturity while continuing to work hard on area’s that they find difficult. One student was chosen in particular for their kindness towards another student who was upset and for a great improvement in their classwork and application.

Well done to all ,it really is lovely to see the ‘happy faces’ when the students names are called and positive way to end another busy week !

Another very busy week lies ahead, please take note of some important dates for your diary below.

Comhghairdeachas to the children from 1st to 4th Class who performed so well last week in Scoil Raifteiri, Castlebar with their respective plays.

Rinne na paistí go hiontach and tá muid go léir ag dul tríd go Féile Scoldrámaíochta Chonnacht. Beidh Féile Scoldrámaíochta Chonnacht ar siúl i mbliana ar an 2ú Márta i Seanscoil Sailearna in Indreabhán(Invern Co Galway), Co. na Gaillimhe.
