September 2016

Out for our Morning Mile! (Well, 1.5km to be precise!)

For the months of September and October (weather permitting) we intend to do a daily “Morning Mile” (morning 1.5 kilometre just doesn’t have the same ring to it!).

 There’s no messing with gear or anything like that, just high-viz vests and off we go for a brisk morning walk. The fresh air and exercise is the perfect way to wake up our brains and bodies and gets us off the best possible start to our busy day.

We welcome any company (as long as you can keep up!).


Calendar Updates

We have made a plethora of updates to our school calendar including trips to Turlough House and Linen Hall Theatre as well as religious sacraments taking place in 2017.

There will be further updates in the coming days for football, rounders and athletics.


Saving with our local Credit Union

We are delighted to announce that we will be running our pupil savings scheme again this year. Susan from Kiltimagh Credit Union will be with us each Wednesday morning.

Rounders Time!

Headbands, get your headbands! 

Another September, another All Ireland Final….but we have a good feeling about his one! 

From our newest Junior Infants to our 6th Class, all have been busy making headbands and wristbands so we can wear our Mayo colours with pride in the lead up to September 18th.

We hope to be able to tie a few around Sam when he comes to visit us in a few weeks time!!! 

Maigh Eo Abú!

Theatre Outing For Our Infants!


Our Infant classroom are in for a real treat next month, culture buffs that they are! They’re off to the Linen Hall Theatre in Castlebar to see an exciting show called “Conor: At The End Of The Universe” on October 28th.

This show is part of the Linen Hall’s fabulous Roola Boola Children’s Art Festival.

There are loads of other exciting events happening during the festival, but be sure to book early!


Conor is on a mission.
A mission to get to the outer edge of the Universe before he runs out of time. But how long until the end of the Universe? How much space? How much time?

Conor: at the end of the Universe is a sensory and artistic journey through space at time-bending speeds. This stunning and engaging production, from the company that created Monster/Clock and Human Child, uses puppets, design, animation and music as Conor and his granddad bring you places that you’ve never seen before.
Ages:  4- 6 (and for people who remember what it was like to be 4-6!)

Travel details etc will issue from the school closer to the date.
