Award Ceremony in St. Mary's Holy Faith Cancelled

Unfortunately the awards ceremony in Saint Mary's Holy Faith has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. I have refunded the children's money to them today (€5). Any child who had not paid the tour money I kept the €5, so those children only need to bring in €15 for tour. Tour is €20 in total.  Apologies for the inconvenience caused. 


Next Monday May 21st as part of Biodiversity week, 4th class will be participating in a bird watching workshop in Portmarnock. Please wear suitable footwear and clothing, old shoes, rain gear etc
