Bake Sale 

What an impressive bake sale hosted by 5th and 6th class on the 3rd of May! They really outdid themselves and all the classes enjoyed buying handmade cookies, brownies and a variety of other treats.

An Advent Posada Journey

Ms. Kelly was involved in creating an Advent pack for primary schools based on the Posada tradition. This pack has been made available to schools linked with CIC DCU. Ms. Kelly illustrated the incredible art work for this resource. As a school, we are incredibly proud of her work. Jacqui Wilkinson, lecturer in CIC DCU, creator of the Follow Me religious education programme and creator of the content within this Posada resource pack, came to the school to present the finalised pack to Ms. Kelly.
