We wish to give families advance notice that we will be participating in the shoebox appeal this year again. We will distribute leaflets just ahead of the Halloween break and invite families to send in their donations mid-November. 

We realise that families like to gather up the items gradually in preparation for filling their shoebox. For that reason there is a photo of the list of items attached to this post. 

School Photographer will be in school 14 October 2020, please see flyer with prices from £7.....

Well done to our fantastic girls on a brilliant display of camogie on Friday 7th February in Newry Bosco. While we were not the victors on this occasion we are very proud of the way our girls never gave up and played their hearts out. They were gracious in defeat and showed great sportsmanship throughout the games.

Bee Safe Event

Primary 6 & 7 attended the Bee Safe event in the An Ríocht GAA  Thursday 30th January 2020. This event is tailored towards P6/7 pupils and informs them how to react and deal with situations that they may potentially face over the coming years.

Experts from Home Safety, NI Fire and Rescue Service, PSNI (Internet safety) and Translink talked to the pupils. Pupils also received a healthy snack along with some goodies for their pencil cases. Thanks to Newry, Mourne & Down District Council for organising the event.
