We were delighted to learn that our application for our third Green flag was successful! We will be awarded our Green flag for water conservation at an Awards Ceremony on May 18th in the Croke Park Convention Centre. We will hold our own flag raising ceremony at a later date. Don’t forget to check out our water saving tips from Water Week!

Today the girls in 6th class took part in a fitness challenge in conjunction with the Physiotherapy Department in Our Lady of Lourdes hospital. It moved from school to school throughout the day and the idea was to keep the relay going all over the town for the whole day. The challenge involved the girls taking part in 30 minutes of continuous exercise to promote the fact that we should do this amount of exercise everyday if we want to stay fit and healthy. The four classes helped to cheer each other on as they swapped ropes every 3 minutes and skipped for a half an hour. The challenge began at 1pm, when we took over from St Ita’s school and at 1.30pm we passed it on the Fatima to continue the relay.Click into the gallery to see more
