Pupils and teachers involved in FETAC programmes were delighted to hear positive remarks from the external authenticator who visited the school on Tuesday April 9th. Her job is to come to examine the programmes the pupils have completed and look at evidence of learning. She praised the work highly. The results have been submitted and we will be waiting for certificates which should arrive around June.
Congratulations to Donnacha Moriarty who won a national prize in the INTO /EBS handwriting competition. He and Maria Hannon have already won prizes at regional level.
We are applying for a renewal of the Green Flag this term. A lot of work has been done by the Green School Committee. We have lovely displays around the theme of bio-diversity throughout the school. Go to the Green School Page for up to date information.
There are two Special Olympic events coming up soon. On April 24th. We will be going to Leisureland with 9 athletes who will be competing in 25m and 50m competitions. On May 15th 7 athletes have been selected to compete in track and field events in Sligo. We have already participated in the Gymnastic competition which was held in Athlone in March. We had great success at that event. Photos of the day can be seen on the Special Olympic page
