Blue Star Flag

On Monday 18th June, 2018, Helen McEntee, TD, came to our school to raise our Blue Star Flag. Our school earned the flag through the participation and hard work of a group of 23 boys, with the help of Mrs. O' Connor, Ms. O' Reilly and Ms. Duggan.

The boys studied and completed projects on

  • the foundation and development of the EU

  • the cultural and linguistic diversity of Europe

  • the role of the EU: what it does and how its work affects the lives of European citizens.

Getting Ready to Support Our Team

Ms. Briody's boys made headbands from wool, Mrs. Carey's made banners and Mrs. Newman's made headbands from cardboard. We hope as many of you as possible can make it to the game tomorrow. It's on at 2 p.m. in Trim GAA Club.

We're in the Final!

Congratulations to our football team for getting to the County Final. Please come and support the team on the 9th June in Trim GAA Club at 2 p.m. The boys, along with Mr. Hannify and Mr. Bird have put a huge effort into reaching the final. Best of luck boys.

Henry Shefflin

On 3rd November Henry Shefflin visited the school to speak to the boys. He gave them some great advice and told them to never give up. It was a pleasure to have him in the school.
