    Summer has arrived and with it comes the end of another school year. We

    have had a very busy term and I would like to personally thank all the

    parents for their help and support throughout the year. I want to take this

    opportunity to wish all of the sixth class pupils, the very best of luck in their

    new school in September. Finally, I wish you a safe and happy summer. Let’s

    hope that the weather stays fine and that the children all enjoy the break.

    Norma Fitzgerald,

    Home School Community Liaison Coordinator

    Parents’ Trip to Carlow IT Every year Carlow IT invite 5th & 6th class pupils to visit their campus and

    this year we were lucky enough to bring the parents along with us. We

    had a fantastic time and the day was packed with

    activities from start to finish. We started off the day

    with a tour of Students Services and a tour of the Li-

    brary. After lunch we got to see the wide range of

    sports facilities on offer and finally we joined the 5th &

    6th class students at the Airplane Hanger. As this trip

    was such a success, I am hoping to run another trip

    next year.
