Altura Credit Union Quiz

We are very proud of our Altura Credit Union quiz team who lost out on 2nd place after a nail biting tie breaker. There were in excess of 60 teams there so it is a huge achievement for them! Well done Cillian, Shane, Diarmuid and Charlie!

Concern Primary Debating – county finalists!

We are delighted to be progressing to the final of the Concern Primary School debating tournament. It has been such an educational experience as we have explored issues such as world hunger and technology consumption. We look forward to the final motion!

Thank you to our opponents from Murrintown NS who gave us a great counter argument. We were most appreciative of the feedback from adjudicators Sally Stevens, Pat Gately and Cora Keane.

We will spend the next month researching and putting our speeches together! Well done to our panel on their success thus far! Sam Proctor, Lizzy Morris, Sophia White, Diarmuid O’Shaughnessy, Charlie Church and Cillian Blackwell

Christmas Concert 2019

We had a fantastic night last night! Many thanks to all for supporting! We raised €1268 and will use it to fund new Primary Language Curriculum resources, musical instruments and made a €150 donation to Women’s Aid. I was extremely proud of our children and am grateful to all the staff. Thank you all for the lovely feedback – we are glad you were entertained!

Many thanks to Fiona Kelly for the wonderful photos!

Food Dudes!

We are loving #FoodDudes! So far this week, our students have sampled fresh crisp cucumber, apples, corn, grapes, carrots, bananas and peppers! We think this works really well in tandem with our Active Flag status.
