2nd Year Retreat
The annual school retreat was held recently for our second year group in Aras Lorcain. Participating students enjoyed the day and found it to be extremely beneficial.
The mock exams have now drawn to an end for our third and sixth year students. It has been a long tiring two weeks on our students but they have certainly found the experience to be extremely worthwhile and beneficial in helping them prepare for their state exams.

With the current climate we are in at present, it is difficult for students and families to have the money to participate in such a charity event for Team Hope. The students showed great i....
