Thank you for your support of this year's Book Fair. A total of €350 was raised for books for school. We thank Mrs Geraghty and 6th Class for their help in organising this.
We extend our sincere sympathy to the family of Josephine Murphy Devaney. Miss Murphy (as she was known to pupils) had worked in school in various capacities in years past, as a teacher and when undertaking teaching practice.
