We have received word from the Irish Times about a 'Fighting Words' writing project...

Fighting Words and Great Lighthouses of Ireland are inviting 7-12 year-olds to become Young Storykeepers. All they have to do is to create a story inspired by lighthouses. The unique story can take any form - poetry, prose, or even illustration. All stories will be showcased in a digital magazine for Cruinniú na nÓg on June 13th.

The current 6th class enjoyed a wonderful day in Ballycroy National Park in June, when they were in Ms Forrestal's 5th Class.  Science Foundation Ireland were there on the day filming, so they are now stars of the small screen.

As you will see, the children represented the school so well and were an absolute credit to us, to themselves and to their families.
