A sincere thank you to all members of staff and students who made positive contributions to our Open Night. We had a huge turnout again this year from a much broader range of schools with enrolment forms coming from Bree, Rathgarogue (New Ross), Glynn, Clonroche, Taghmon, Caroreigh, Donard, Raheen, Courtnacuddy, St Mary’s Enniscorthy, Adamstown etc. The feedback from parents has been very positive and they are very thankful to those staff members who facilitated guided tours on the night.

A sincere thank you to our Parents Association who played an active role on the night providing refreshments. 


A fantastic group of Transition Year students involved in our very own bank. Lovely to see them take such pride in their new roles as part of Transition Year.




Well done to Mr O Connor for bringing the first year students on a retreat to Leisure Max last Thursday 11th October. Students were very excited about the team building activities, zorbing, wrestling, soccer, leap of faith, lazer tag, bungee run, archery and much more. Their behavior was superb on the day. Thank you to Ms Holohan for assisting.




We are really looking forward to welcoming you to our Open Night on Tuesday 9th October 2018. You will be able to see our state of the art facilities, meet our innovative enthusiastic teachers and students.  Looking forward to seeing you between 7 and 9.30 pm.
