School Photos
County Photos will visit the school this coming Monday 4th October to take photos of the pupils of our school. No class groups will be taken this year due to Covid, but Junior Infants & 6th Class will have group photos in the form of individual head shots. If you wish to have your children photographed as a family you must arrange to transport the children from one school to the other & back again yourself.

Congratulations to the pupils who made their First Confession recently. They will make their First Holy Communion this coming Saturday 2nd October in the Church of the Assumption, Collooney. Have a wonderful day!
