School Activities for Term 1 Sept 2019 – Dec 2019

This week Niamh from the “Heritage in the School” organisation visited the school and she talked with the children about wildlife in local habitats and appreciating Irish biodiversity through fun and informative activities.

Weekly Activities:

Irish Dancing: Every Thursday, All the children are learning Irish dancing with Fionnan.

Playball: Our Juniors and Seniors are enjoying playball after school on Monday’s.

Every second Tuesday we get a visit from the  Mobile Library, next date due is the 22nd October.


The mobile libraries carry a wide range of adult and children’s books, along with audio books, Internet access and a free request service for books not in stock. The mobile library service has been an integral part of Cork County Council’s response to the reading and information needs of the public since the early 1960s.

Despite an expanded branch network, the mobile library service still plays a key role in delivering a library service to rural communities.
