We have a number of events that we run annually which are a big part of the school year:
The Halloween Party: This fancy dress disco party takes place in The West County Hotel on the Thursday 24th October 2019.
School Calendar: The school calendar is sold each November for the following year. The calendar contains photos of various activities at the school for the previous 12 months. It is a fantastic keepsake and the money raised goes toward fundraising for the school and donations to our chosen charities.
First Communion Day Reception: After the First Communion Mass, the parents group hosts a tea & coffee reception at the school for all First Communion children, their families and friends. It gives the children a chance to spend some times with their classmates on this very important day.
