Online Safety Talk

We wish to thank Garda O Connell and Garda Talbot of the Milford Garda District for visiting our school recently to present a really informative and enjoyable presentation on online safety to Fifth and Sixth Class pupils.

School Debating success

We are busy on the School Debating front at the moment and are participating in two different competitions. We have enjoyed two successes from two in competitive contests in our opening league games in the Letterkenny Debating League but further stiff challenges await us in the weeks ahead.

We have also entered the Donegal Education Board run Concern Debating competition and have also enjoyed two successive wins. The standard of debating from all teams participating is very high and we wish our team the best of luck in upcoming challenges.

Credit Union Quiz

The annual Credit Union Quiz was held in the Mt Errigal Hotel, Letterkenny on Monday, 3rd February. Many congrats to all participants and well done to our U-13 teams who finished in 2nd and 3rd place respectively.

Grandparents’ Day

Grandparents’ Day was held in the school on Friday, 31st January. Pupils attended mass in the chapel at 10 am with our School Choir performing a few tunes. Afterwards, all were invited to the School Hall for a cup of tea and St Brigid Cross-making and we all enjoyed a lovely morning.
