The school have been involved with an ongoing project with the Dept of Children and Youth Affairs over the last four years.

This year we received an invitation to meet the President of Ireland Michael D Higgins to join with him in commemorating the children who died in the 1916 Rising. This marvellous experience was hosted in Árás an Úachtáran and organised by the Dept of Children and Youth Affairs.

Bláithín Maguire Principal , Miriam Gough and four pupils from the school who partook in the project travelled to Dublin for this wonderful occasion.

Never in our wildest dreams did we ever think we would get to meet the President and his wife Sabine, who opened the doors of their home in the Phoenix Park, best describes the feeling of pride and joy among the pupils.

This certainly has been a fantastic way to end the first year of our new Principal’s term of office!!
