Our fifth classes recently visited the Lourdes Stadium to take part in some athletics training!! The boys had great fun trying out a number of different events. A big thank you to all the coaches from Boyne A.C. who put the lads through their paces. Watch out Usain Bolt!!!
Two teams from sixth class represented our school at the recent Louth F.A.I 5-a-side soccer blitz. Our teams, managed by Mr. O’Reilly, performed superbly.
Our red team topped their group with an unbeaten run while our green team were very unlucky to loose out on second place in their group by a single goal.
Our red team qualified for the final stages of the competition and finished in a very respectable third place overall!
Well done to all the boys who took part. They represented our school brilliantly and played each game in a spirit of sportsmanship and fairness!!

As part of the Proclamation Day celebrations we constructed three of the buildings that were central to the 1916 Easter Rising. The G.P.O., City Hall and Liberty Hall. They were displayed in the library with all the other class projects.
These boys all took part in the ceremony. Tadhg and Enoch are part of the band who performed ‘Foggy Dew’, Ahmed, Conor and Franz were part of a short Irish drama.
They all did a fantastic job.
On Wednesday the 2nd of March 2016 R7 went into the basketball court to do Gaelic. Gaelic took 30 mins and we all had a good time.
