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.

The Shoe Box Appeal

84 boxes! Not bad for a small school! Well done to our Student Council for coordinating the shoe box appeal for @TeamHopeIreland.  We hope that they bring happiness to children less fortunate than ourselves.
