Healthy Eating Policy

There was a very positive response to the initiation of our Healthy Eating Policy from both parents and students alike. We are delighted to see the effort being made by everyone to ensure the policy is followed.

Please find below some websites which may be useful in regards  to the policy:


K’nex Roadshow

The K’nex Roadshow visited our school last week in conjunction with Science Week. 2nd, 3rd and 4th class had the opportunity to build with K’nex. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the hands on activity and showed great listening, co-operation and teamwork!

Many thanks to Padraig Keating who has just finished coaching 5th and 6th class hurling. Their level of skill has improved immensely after the 8 weeks of intensive but fun training.

County Council Safe Cycling Day

On 20th October, Seán and Martin, from the County Council came to our school to instruct children from 3rd to 6th class on how to cycle safely on roads. They were extremely informative, friendly and helpful and the children learned a lot from them. They taught children how to correctly attach their helmets, braking skills, hand signals and taught them essential road safety skills. We ended the day by going on a 5km cycle to practise the skills learned. Thanks again to Seán and Martin for a very enjoyable day.

National Slow Down Day

As part of the Green School Travel Programme, students are constantly made aware of the dangers of our roads. Local Garda Michael McDermott visited our school on ‘National Slow Down Day’ on the 21st of October to highlight these safety issues and to inform the pupils on how to keep themselves safe as both pedestrian and passenger. Pupils portrayed a vital message to drivers urging them to ‘SLOW DOWN’.
