Christmas Fair
Thank you to all the families who have contributed to our School Christmas Fair so far. We have received a huge amount of toys and books and we now feel we have sufficient toys for babies and young children. We still need toys for older boys and girls. We also require a lot more bottles if we are to have a Bottle Stall. We need donations of bottles of wine, spirits, minerals and cans of minerals/beer. You can drop them into the school next week on Tuesday & Thursday at morning and afternoon collection times and also every evening from 7-8pm at the school. We need your help for the Christmas Fair to be a success. If you are available on Saturday 29 or Sunday 30 November to help with setting up or helping on the stalls on the day, please contact Olivier on 086 8352920 or Marie on 087 9935551.

"On 13/11/08 the B Team played Scoil Thomais in Tir na nÓg beside CCC. We played a good game but sadly we lost. We scored a few goals and points in the second. We can't wait to play Scoil Thomais again next year." Katie & Luke K - 5th Class
"One of our school's gaelic teams were playing in a final against St Francis Xavier's for the Porterstown Cup. The whole team played well. We had the lead for most of the math but Xaviers kept on playing their best, no matter what the scoreline. It was a great day for all who took part. We are very proud of our players and coaches for the cup and everybody who came to support us each week. We are delighted to have won the cup and bring silverware back to the school". Brendan & Luke L - 6th Class
