We are delighted to showcase the musical talents of our students and teachers through the performance of “I’ll Rise Up/Fight Song”, co-ordinated by Ms. Roche. A powerpoint presentation accompanies the song, which conveys images of our school and its community which showed great resilience through the Co-vid 19 Pandemic.
PARENTS – Did you know that children and young people need 60 MINUTES of physical activity every day??
Participating in the #ActiveHomeWeek challenge is a great way to help them reach this target and to find NEW ways of being active that they ENJOY
The TY YSI group invited members of the County Carlow Universal Access Movement to our school to talk to the student body about the many obstacles faced by people with disabilities. Each member gave an informative account of the many difficulties people with disabilities come across on a daily basis. The group gave the students a lot to think about, and gave advice on how we as a community can help break down some of these barriers.
