In this school I like…

  • "friends and most of the teachers"
  • "its small, we can get extra help if we need it, we know everyone in the school"


  • "The atmosphere. I like that I don't complain about coming to school. I like the student/teacher relationship, you can have fun but you do work at the same time. everyone gets on well and its like a family. if your struggling with a subject the teacher helps you with it.

  • "the teachers. The teachers usually let you express your ideas in classes like maths Irish English but most definitely in our practical classes and they're easy to hold up conversation with"
  • "the variety of subjects and sports you can participate in and have plenty of options for your junior/ leaving cert"
