Congratulations to all who took part in the recent Co. Wexford Primary School Sports Day held in Enniscorthy Sports Hub.

Our big winner on the day was Dannan Long who won gold in the U12 high jump competition. This is a huge achievement and we are all very proud of Dannan.

Whole School Running Initiative!  

The whole school are taking part in a fun running initiative. The children are running from Malin Head to Mizen Head plotting their journey along the way. This is a whole school initiative with a fun interactive notice board to plot their journey. The classes enjoy pin pointing where exactly they are on the map. There are a number of main towns marked on the map which they have to go through before they reach their final destination, Mizen Head. The whole school love working in their class groups to get as far as they can along the route.
