Show by Newport Secondary School

The Fifth & Sixth class pupils attended the presentation by St. Mary’s Secondary School of The Winner Takes It All on Wednesday November 15th.  It was a wonderful performance by the Transition Year students and we were very proud of our own past pupils, Jack Nicholas, Brian Quigley and Jamie Cummins. 


On Tuesday, December 5th the West Midlands Children’s Theatre will come to our school with set, costumes, props, lighting and plenty of exciting music to present Dick Whittington to our pupils from Junior Infants to Fourth class.  The cost per pupil will be €3.
