Our Centenary - Saturday, December 3rd 2023

W. B. Yeats, ‘Among School Children’.

I walk through the long schoolroom questioning;
A kind old nun in a white hood replies;

Centenary Celebration 1922 - 2022

On the 3rd of December, 2022 our school celebrated its centenary. On the morning of this celebration the children sang Christmas Carols in the church for the parents. We all then returned to the school where Bishop Michael Duignan officially opened our new classroom and Astro Turf pitch. Following this, Pat McDonagh, former principal of the school, officially launched our centenary book. Many people from the community came to visit the school where the once attended. Many of them saw their names in the old roll books and reminisced about their times here. It was a wonderful day that we will not forget. Attached here is a link to photos from the day.
