This is a picture of me at the Credit Union Art competition Awards ceremony in Croke Park. Over 30,000 entries were entered in to this years competition and the competition is in its 34th year. I went to the awards ceremony on Sunday the 11th of February with my family. I got to meet Marty Whelan and he presented me with my certificate and my cash prize. After I was presented with my prize I got some photos taken with the President of the League of Credit Unions and Marty Whelan. I have won a prize in the Credit Union Art Competition for 4 years in a row. In Rathlin I came 3rd, in Inisbofin I came 2nd, in Gola I came 1st and also came first in the the Second level and this year I came merit in the National level. I enjoyed my time in Croke Park.
One of our bus escorts, Mary, retired yesterday. Thank you so much for helping us out on the buses over the last 16 years, and we hope you enjoy your well earned time off.
It was a wonderful celebration of the start of Catholic Schools week in the Holy Redeemer Church. Our choir joined with all of the choirs from the Dundalk area, and we lifted the roof off the church!
The school closes tomorrow at 12pm for the holidays. We will reopen on 8th January 2018.
We wish you all a very happy, safe and peaceful Christmas!
The stage is prepared for our Christmas Concert! We've all been practising really hard and we're so excited to show you all what we can do. The concert for parents is at 10am on Thursday, don't miss it!
Have a look at our Christmas work up on the noticeboards around the school. We also have a beautiful Christmas tree and a crib in the foyer.
Thank you to our Finnish placement student, who made beautiful cakes for the staff for Finland's 100th Independence Day. They were really tasty, and we got to try the unusual Finnish salty liqourice too. It was great to try food from another culture, and to celebrate Suomi from Ireland!
