To supplement the work children are doing at home as guided by their own teachers, check out RTE's Home School Hub.  The ‘virtual classroom’ airs on RTE2 from 11am to 12pm.  Later on in the day, RTE Home School Extra will air as a catch-up programme at 4.15pm.

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Just a note to let you know that your child may ‘subtract’ or ‘take-away’ two-digit numbers using a different method than you might have learned in school yourself. This video might clarify how it has been taught to your child in class.


Kind regards,

What a lovely day we all had at the Christmas Concert!

Thanks to everyone who helped in any way, including the Parent Association, all the staff, the pupils themselves, and of course the fantastic audience!

On Friday 6th December, the children from 2nd Class visited the Newport Shepherds in Derradda,  They saw an exhibition of sheep herding from Alan and Paul, and learned how sheepdogs help the farmers and how they are trained.  They also got to meet the friendly sheepdog puppies and hold them.

The children really enjoyed their visit and we would like to thank Alan and Paul for their warm welcome.
