What a super morning with an in-school performance from West Midland Children’s Theatre Group! Their representation of ‘The Bluebird’ was thoroughly enjoyed by all children from junior infants to sixth class.

There was such excitement today when our junior and senior infants embarked on a trip to the duck pond in Arklow. There they observed native wildlife including a swan and her cygnets! They really enjoyed the fairy door trail too! To end the trip the children played in the playground and had a picnic. They got a huge surprise when Ms. Russell arrived with ice pops. We hope that they have lovely memories from today! Well done to all on super behaviour!
