The Fox and Lamb

We would like to thank Michael Sheridan and Damian Friel who visited our school with a fox cub and a newborn lamb, as part of our ‘New Life’ theme. They spoke to Junior Infants, Senior Infants and First Class. They gave the pupils facts and information about foxes and lambs, and they answered questions from the children. The pupils really enjoyed both visits and learned a lot about nature and new life.

Réalt Uladh 

This year our students took part in Réalt Uladh in the LYIT. This is a primary school competition in which children sing, do recitations, read and act through the medium of the Irish language. It is a tough competition as you are up against Gaeltacht and Gael Scoileanna, whose first language is Irish. However, we managed to secure several Highly Commended certificates for our beautiful singers, Riona, Leah and Aoife. In the Recitation of an original poem' section, Jamie delighted the audience with a rendition of 'Nil mise dalba' winning the cup outright! Sarah managed not only to secure a gold medal in her recitation section, but managed to beat a total of 106 competitors to win another cup. Not bad for our first attempt at Réalt Uladh! Well done everyone and the proud parents who supported us on the day.


Jason Quigley 


Many thanks to Jason Quigley who took time out of his schedule to talk to the children and present medals to our Athletics team. Our boxers Dylan and Patrick presented Jason with a Glenswilly GAA jersey.
