Christmas Market

The Transition Year and Second Year Class had a busy week last week preparing for the annual Christmas market organised by Dunmore Town Traders.  This year we sold a wide variety of products.  We all co-operated and worked well to ensure the success of the project.  We really enjoyed being involved in this community project.  A huge thank you to Ms McManus, Ms O’Reilly, Ms Fallon and Ms Scarry.

TY Soccer Blitz

The TY class 4B organised an excellent soccer blitz for 1st years and a very worthwhile afternoon of sport was enjoyed. 1st years worked well as a team and were presented with prizes for their achievements. Well done to these Transition Year organisers.
