After Christmas, our school along with the other schools involved in the Drogheda Moves Project will be getting involved in Operation Transformation. Last year the parents of our school along with the parents of St Brigid’s, St Patrick’s and St. Joseph’s took part in Operation Transformation and the group had great fun. This year we will be expanding our participation. We will have fitness classes once a week with Sean Kilroy a well-known local personal trainer. Parents will have the option to be weighed in or measured each week. We will also have health and nutrition talks throughout the 8 weeks that the project is running.

The girls in 6th class put on a show stopping performance of Grease last Tuesday 24th May. Over ninety girls from four classes took part in the show. The girls practised for a number of weeks with their drama teacher Jamie Mc Carthy and teachers Ms. Keenan, Ms Carroll, Ms. Lynch and Ms. Kilcoyne. The show featured all the unforgettable songs from the hit film including ‘You’re The One That I Want’, ‘Summer Nights’, ‘Hopelessly Devoted to You’, ‘Sandy’, ‘Greased Lightning’ and many more. The show was bursting with leather jackets, slick hairstyles, cheerleaders and even a rock ’n ’roll dance off. The show ended with all ninety students on stage singing ‘We go Together’ and a massive round of applause. Click here to see some more great photos

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


Last Week the Irish Coast Guard visited the school to talk to the girls in 6th class about water safety. They gave the girls great advice about how to stay safe in the water and also told them what to do in case of an emergency.
