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.

Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Classes played five-a-side soccer today in Parkville United. They had a great day.
Thanks to Garry Coady from the FAI who organised the day and to Ms. O’Neill and Ms. Hunter Garland who attended the event with our boys and girls.

We were delighted to welcome members of An Garda Síochana to St. Columba’s N.S. today. Garda Neill spoke to our children about safety on the road and the importance of booster seats, hi vis vests and bicycle helmets. They showed us how their handcuffs work too! Then we went outside to see the Mounted Unit. Every child had a chance to pet the horse and we had our photo taken with them.
Thank you to Sgt. Joe Hanley from Tullow Garda Station who organised the visit. We all thoroughly enjoyed our day.
