One Step Beyond

Dec 14 2021

Liam Lawton’s song ‘One Step Beyond’ was recently recorded by First, Fifth and Sixth Year students in honour of Nano Nagle and the Presentation Sisters. Our very talented Head Boy, Aaron Smith, recorded the song and created the video, in addition to singing the song with his classmates. Music Department students decided to record the song as we couldn’t have our usual Presentation Day celebration this year. The recording is dedicated to three Presentation Sisters from our local schools who passed away in 2021 Sr. Patricia O’Byrne, Sr. Kathleen Hendron and Sr. Mary Keary, and all the Presentation Sisters around the world.

Féilte Scoille

Congratulations to the Teaching and Learning Team on a wonderful morning of sharing and collaboration. Click on the heading for further details and photos. 


On Wednesday the 8th December, we hosted Féilte Scoile in our school. This was organised by the Teaching and Learning team in the school and Coordinated by Janet Bradley (Teaching and Learning Co-ordinator) and Katie Barrett (Junior Cycle Co-ordinator) Féilte is run by the Teaching Council of Ireland every year and attracts many teachers from all over Ireland to showcase their Teaching and Learning methodologies.

In our Féilte Scoile, each subject department showcased their Teaching and Learning Methodologies and some Assessment Methodologies including feedback. Teachers spent a number of minutes at each stand and saw how they could incorporate their strategies into their subjects.

We were joined on the day by our Chairman of the Board of Management Fr. Conn O'Maoldhomhnaigh who visited every stand to see these methodologies.

Overall, it was a very successful day with positive feedback from staff. It is hoped to run this event again in the future.

The Teaching and Learning team would like to thank Mr. Murray, Ms. Gillespie and Mr. Carley along with all teachers for their support on this initiative.
