Dear Parent,

You will be pleased to hear that our Quiz Team has done us proud over the past few weeks. Nicholas, Lorcan, Justin & Conor reached the National Final of the Credit Union Quiz at Tullamore on Saturday. They finished in joint first place and were unfortunately pipped in the tie-break. Well done to Mr. O’Donoghue and the team.
The football and basketball leagues have just begun and will involve much organization and collaboration between players, teachers and parents. Games are sometimes rescheduled at short notice and your patience and support is greatly appreciated.

Our chess competitions have now been completed and the results were as follows:
Senior Chess​​winner: Sam Hannigan​​ runner-up: Lorcan MacMahon
Junior Chess​​winner: Ryan Donohue​​ runner-up: Daniel O’Brien

Well done to all 119 contestants who took part.

There are some Annual Voluntary Contributions still outstanding. We need every cent to keep the school ticking over and to make it a comfortable and exciting place in which to educate your child. Our facilities are the best, but the running costs are correspondingly high. If you have forgotten to pay your contribution we would be delighted to get it any time soon.

Yours sincerely,

Tom Kelleher ​​​​ PRINCIPAL
