First Year Girls Gaelic Team

Well done to Ms Ward and the first year girls who participated in the indoor Gaelic Football Blitz which took place in Edgeworthstown on Thursday last. The first of many outings we hope.

Art Exhibition

The level 5 and Level 6 Art PLC students attended an exhibition in Providers, Longford on Wednesday, September 24. The exhibition was organised by local artists including Gary Robinson. A great day was had by all the students who attended.


The level 5 and Level 6 Art PLC students along with their tutor Ms Olive Wright are busy designing and constructing the active learning centres for the ‘Octopus Kids Centre’ on the Athlone road. This sensory learning centre will be officially opened on the Bank Holiday weekend in October and it is the first of its kind in the Midlands and only the second such centre in the country. We wish all the students and Olive every success with this exciting and challenging project.
