Orientation Day

It was lovely to welcome 3 Belmont NS students to our school today. This orientation visit helps prepare 6th class students for the transition from Primary to Secondary. We hope they enjoyed the day. I know they are really looking forward to joining us in August. Special thanks to our own students for minding them so well and to Ms Grehan for organising the visit.

Connacht U15 Golf

Planning submitted for Photovoltaic Panels

We are delighted to have just applied to Galway County Council for Planning permission to erect 30m2 of Photovoltaic Solar Panels on the Southern Roof area of our School in two rows. These 19 photovoltaic solar panels, each comprising a number of solar cells, will help contribute to our electrical power and help us reduce our usage of the national grid. This is just one small step of our upcoming Deep Energy Retrofit which is taking place to our school this summer. More details to follow shortly.
