PTAA Essay & Art Success

We were delighted to hear of our success in the Roscommon/Athlone Pioneer Total Abstinence Association Regional Essay and Art Competitions.

A big congratulations to Laoise in Sixth Class, who was awarded overall winner in the Regional Competition in Art.

We had further success in the Essay Competition as fifth class student AJ was awarded 3rd place overall.

To have 2 students feature in the Regional Awards is a fantastic achievement and we are very proud of them both.  

Both Laoise and AJ attended the prize giving ceremony in the Abbey Hotel recently and we have some lovely photos of them with their parents and with their teacher Ms. Nolan.

Congratulations Laoise and AJ on this outstanding accomplishment!

Turoe Pet Farm

We had a wonderful day in Turoe Pet Farm recently where we met a great variety of animals including pigs, cockerels, ponies, rabbits, donkeys, goats, ducks and lamas.

Lots of fun was had on the massive 8000 Square Foot bouncing castle and in the lovely playground also.

A Day in Dublin!!

Following a successful application to the Gallery at Schools Programme, we were delighted to be awarded a travel bursary from the National Gallery of Ireland to subsidise the cost of a bus to Dublin and an invitation to visit their Gallery. Our senior room pupils travelled to Dublin recently to avail of this offer. We had a wonderful experience and we were given a fully guided tour of the Gallerty and its exhibitions.

Whilst in Dublin, we couldn’t miss the opportunity to take in some more of what the City has to offer and we decided a trip to Croke Park was a must. We spent a very happy couple of hours exploring Croke Park and the GAA Museum and we were given a full tour of the Stadium.

The trip home would not be compete without the obligitary visit to Supermacs in Kinnegad and it was the perfect end to a perfect day!!
