Our School Anthem

Written in keeping with our motto, ‘Ar Aghaidh le Chéile – Moving Forward Together’, our anthem has been composed by the children of our school. You can click on the link to our school YouTube Channel below and sing along with our 1st edit of ‘Ar Aghaidh le Chéile’ at any time and anywhere!

Once ready, we will professionally record the school community performing ‘Ar Aghaidh le Chéile’ and make our production available across a variety of media. Keep an eye out for future edits of our anthem on our school socials as they happen!

Share the creativity and, Ar Aghaidh le Chéile!

Creative Schools Week Art Competition

The children based their projects on many different forms of art including painting, drawing, sculpture, gardening, installation, literature, knitting, baking, junk art, architecture, lego, jewellery, film making and many more.

Each piece of art was original and creative and the children enjoyed admiring and appreciating each others work. We were blown away by the standard of the artwork and by the amount of talent and creativity which we have in our school!

Fruitcake

The children in 4th, 5th and 6th class were treated to this dark yet funny tale which involved a cookery demonstration!

We would like to give a massive thank you to Alice whose performance we thoroughly enjoyed! If you would like to see another of Alice’s shows please check out the poster above with details of her upcoming performance of Liv which is suitable for 13 year olds +.

Well done to all involved!
