Eid Mubarak
We would like to wish Eid Mubarak to all the children in our school (and their families) who are celebrating Eid this weekend.

School Photographs
There have been a lot of orders for the three photos in the large frames. As the frames are too big for the younger children to manage, we are setting up a collection area on Tuesday 01 December at 8.30am and from 1.00 - 2.00 pm.
Please note due to insufficient demand, the Photographer will not be attending the Christmas Fair. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Irish Volleyball Team
"On Saturday 21 November, the Irish Volleyball team visited St Patrick's. Some of the children who do Volleyball on Wednesdays came to meet the team. We trained with them and played a match. They enjoyed it so much that they might come back again in 2010! It was a great honour to meet them." Darragh & Tom 3rd Class
