Swimming in Mulranny
We were delighted (and just a bit relieved!) to get this photo from the Mulranny Park Hotel, clearly showing that their pool is just about ready for use! The Leisure Centre has had a significant refurbishment and they experienced quite a few delays due to supply chain issues, but we will be starting swimming lessons there for 2nd, 3rd and 4th classes NEXT WEEK
Well done 6th Class!
Well done 6th Class! The pupils raised €1055 for Ukraine yesterday with their Rice Krispie Sales Combined with €195 raised by the girls from 3rd class, that is a grand total of €1,250, which is very impressive indeed Thanks to all the pupils and parents of our school community who supported this fundraiser for Ukraine
Well done Moya Faye & Robin
As we mentioned a couple of weeks ago, Moya, Faye and Robin from 3rd Class made and sold loom wristbands in the colours of the Ukrainian flag to raise money to help refugees from Ukraine. We are delighted to say that the girls raised €180 in total, a fantastic achievement! We will combine that €180 with the money raised by 6th class from the Rice Krispie Bake Sale and make sure all monies raised go to help the people of Ukraine.
