Active School Week June 18-22

Thank you for attending our lunchtime concert last Friday in glorious sunshine.  We had a very enjoyable Active School Week as we undertook activities on our school grounds and on the Astroturf.  We were delighted to welcome back past pupil Jack Nicholas last Friday. Jack, along with Pádraig Harnett, son of Nóirín is on the Limerick Minor team.  They play in the Munster Minor Hurling Final next Sunday, July 1st against Tipperary in Semple Stadium, Thurles and we send Jack and Pádraig our best wishes for their success. 

Parents’ Association

A very big thank you to our Parents’ Association for the goody bags they provided for all the children last Friday.  They were much appreciated by all!

Incredible Edibles

Congratulations to Third & Fourth class and their teacher Nicholas O’Brien on their crop of vegetables which they enjoyed for their lunch last Friday.  The children made salad sandwiches which included lettuce, spinach and chives which were harvested from the growing pots.  Some of the children will bring home strawberries, potatoes and turnips which are not yet ready for harvesting.  They really enjoyed being involved from the seed to sandwich process. 

Secondhand books

Many books on our book lists are available secondhand from Gateway to Education, a charity shop on 9 Wickham Street in Limerick. 

End of Year Mass Tuesday at 10.00

We say farewell to our Sixth class at this mass.  Please join us if you can.

Summer holidays

Thank you to all our children, parents and staff for their work over the past school year.  School holidays begin on Tuesday June 26th at 12 noon.  Have a lovely, sunny and safe summer.  We return on Wednesday August 29th.
