Mid-term Break at Arklow CBS

Wishing all our students, parents and staff a safe, well-deserved mid- term break and to thank you all for your continued cooperation and support. ”Ar scátha chéile a mhairimid” . We are looking forward to welcoming everybody back to school on November 1st. Happy Halloween everyone.

Máirtín Ó Griallais

It is with a heavy heart that we learned of the untimely death of our dear colleague Máirtín Ó Griallais. Máirtín taught woodwork and T.G here at Arklow CBS and was a respected and admired teacher and mentor to our students. Máirtín was laid to rest last week and representatives of the school community, including members of staff as well as students past and present were in attendance at his funeral to pay their respects. The school flags were flown at half-mast. The school community would like to offer their condolences to Máirtín’s wife, children and family at this very sad time. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dilís.

Bhí muintir na scoile croíbhriste nuair a chualamar go raibh ár gcara agus múinteoir adhmadóireachta agus líníocht theicniúil imithe ar shlí na firinne. Ba mhúinteoir den scoth é agus bhí ard mheas ag chuile dhuine air. Cuireadh Máirtín an tseachtain seo caite agus bhí muintir na scoile i láthair chun ár n-ómós a thabairt dó. Comhbhrón ó chroí dá bhean chéile, a ghasúir agus a chlann uilig. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dilís.
