Students’ Council are holding their annual Bake Sale on Friday week the 29th of May in aid of Our Lady’s Children Hospital in Crumlin. Our school has a special connection with Crumlin as some of our children have been helped, cared for and cured by their dedicated staff. Fundraising and support can make a difference to the lives of in-patients and out-patients. Money raised will buy urgently needed life-saving equipment, fund vital research and renovation projects. On Bake Sale Day there will be a selection of homemade treats available for children to buy as well as games to play. The Students’ Council would be very appreciative of all donations. If you would like to donate cakes, buns, bread or treats please send them to Room 16 on Friday week. Please also ensure your children have some pocket money on the day.


There will be no school on Monday and Tuesday the 1st & 2nd of June. All School Tours will take place on the 3rd, 4th & 5th of June. Letters will follow this week.
