New Extension & Dressing Rooms.

For the past year the parents and staff have been busy fundraising for a state if the art playground which will be in place this September. A playground committee was set up in the school and some of the fundraising activities included cake sales, bazaar day, film premiere night, Sports Question & Answers night, fancy dress, bag packing, publication and sale of Christmas cards.

The playground will be supplied by Go Play, a company based in Ireland. It comes complete with an impact absorbing playground surface and numerous playing equipment such as climbing frames, slides, scramblers, spinner bowls, a balancing beam and much more.

Deep appreciation and gratitude is expressed to the parents, local businesses and the local community for their generosity and continued support in fundraising over the years.

The Board of Management are confident that they can acquire the funds sufficient to complete these proposed projects without having recourse to seeking further contributions from the local community.
