Students had a chance to join any or all of our various school based Clubs at lunchtime on Friday 12 September last. There are a wide range of clubs from darts, chess and cards to film making (see our library page to view some of last years short films), reading, computer and board games,football, soccer, hurling and girls basketball so there was something to suit all tastes.
Pictured below are some of our students signing up at the various tables.
Welcome back to all our students for the new academic year. We wish everyone every success and good luck in their studies throughout the year. Below are pictured our new first year students in their classes, a special and big warm welcome to them.
