First to Sixth Classes began swimming today at St. Fiaac’s Swimming Pool, Graiguecullen. They had lots of fun! It was a pleasure to see all our children participate in and enjoy the swimming lesson. We are all looking forward to swimming for the next eight weeks.

Our annual Christmas party was held on Tuesday 15th December for Infants, First and Second classes. We had lots of fun playing party games. We even had a visit from Santa Claus!
Thank you to Papa John’s Pizza who sponsored our delicious party food, Tullow Group of Parishes for their generous contribution toward party costs and the Caldbeck family for their kind donation of a Christmas tree.

Congratulations to one of our Sixth Class pupils who recently won two medals in the Under 14 County Cross Country Event in Ballon recently. She was placed second in the individual event and first in the team event. She also won two gold medals in the Under 13 County Cross Country Event in Tinryland. We are very proud of her. Well done.
The children of St. Columba’s N.S. are demonstrating their mathematical and engineering prowess at lunchtime through their innovative use of our new giant Jenga bricks. Most recently, we have been treated to castles in our yard and racing hurdles of increasing height and complexity. The constructions are very impressive!
