Well done to our talented 2nd Year lads who started off a busy sporting week with a win & they have secured the West Region Crown in Basketball. We were slow to start in the first quarter against a well prepared Headford side. But we took off in the second quarter with great team play and scores from Robert Heneghan and Dylan Connolly. A big lead was generated and they never looked back. Colm Costello, our captain fantastic accepted the cup and they now look forward to the All Ireland playoffs where they will try to secure a place in the Arena like last year. Best of luck to all the other sports teams who are representing the school this week
Our 2020 Prospectus is now available to view below and on our General Info Menu. I look forward to calling into the local National Schools and meeting the 6th class students over the coming weeks with information packs and enrolment forms.
Reminder: Our open night for incoming 1st years is taking place Thursday, 27th Feb @ 6:45 pm. We look forward to meeting you and showing you around our school.

Congratulations to our Skitts Intermediate Enterprise team who made it to the Student Enterprise Programme Final in Croke Park recently. They did an amazing job to get there. They came up with the idea of Skitts, a game which can be used in the Community Games Skittles Competition. They sold it to Community Games participants and schools. This highlights a great set of skills that will stand to the students in later life. A huge thank you to your mentors PJ Mullin and Gary Lowe from Whizzkids and to the Breda and Gillian in the Galway Enterprise Office for your support. Your teachers Mary Grehan and Anne Fallon really enjoyed working this fantastic team of students. You showed great confidence when interviewed by the Judges. Well done!
