Dear Parent/Guardians/Community Member
Our Cycling Profiency Scheme for P7 pupils begins today and will continue over subsequent Fridays until the end of term. As a result there will be an increased number of children cycling to and from school, in both the village and around the back roads. We ask all drivers to be alert especially around the school gates at pick up and drop off times.
Thank you for your understanding and help with this matter.
P7 Teachers- Mr P Mc Coy, Miss P Mulkerns
Best wishes to our Girls’ Gaelic Football team and their coaches tomorrow, as they take on Armagh CBS in the Athletic Grounds, in the Girls’ semi-final, of the Malachy Mc Genney Cup, ( large school category). Throw in is at 11:45 am. We congratulate them on their achievement to date and wish them well for the next round.
The whole girls’ squad will travel to Armagh, and they will need to bring a packed lunch. Please remember to layer up as it can be cold out of the sun.
In the event that they win their Semi-final, the Final will also be played tomorrow and is due to take place at 2:10 pm. In this eventuality the squad would not be back for 3:00 pm and we ask Parents/Guardians to have arrangements in place for a pick up at 3:30/3:45 pm. We will place a notice on the school website, tomorrow, as soon as we know the outcome of the Semi-final.
We have had a message from someone special which we would like to share with our team! Click on the link below
