Playground Markings

We wish to extend our sincerest thanks to the Parent Teacher Association who hosted a fundraising evening in Tullow Rugby Club on Saturday 28th April. It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Thank you very much to the members of the P.T.A. for their wonderful work. The event raised a total of €2,479. Thank you to everyone who donated food, assisted with organising and preparing the venue, volunteered on the night, purchased and sold tickets and to those who attended the event. Your support and generosity is greatly appreciated. The funds raised have been used to purchase playground markings. The playground markings are a fantastic addition to our playground.

We wish to extend our congratulations to one of our Fifth Class pupils who recently received a prize at Carlow Enterprise Awards. She won an award for her ‘Trolley Jolly Pad’ design which she entered into the Student Concept Competition. Well done.
