South Leinster Cross Country

We had over 30 students attending the South Leinster School Cross Country in New Ross on the 24th of January, this was a great opportunity for pupils to get a taste of competing in Cross Country at a secondary school level. There were some brilliant performances throughout the day: Kate O`Neill, Tommy Coogan, Cathal O`Reilly and Harry Roach narrowly missing out on a place in the Leinster competition.

Huge congratulations to our Minor Girls Team who all put on a stunning performance on the day to secure a place for the Leinster competition. This will be held in Santry on the 21st of February.

The team was made up of Molly O`Dornan, Isabel Delaney, Holly Brennan, Sofia Kerr, Aoibhinn Ruane and Chloe Ryan.

Wellread Programme


We are delighted to announce that we have received the "wellread" award, an initiative designed and organised by the Professional Development Service for Teachers (PDST). It aims to create heightened awareness about the importance of creating a culture of reading in school communities for our young people as part of their personal and academic development. The school community is now recognised nationally as a school that promotes and encourages a culture of reading.

You can read more about the award on the PDST website by clicking here, and you can find out more about our school initiatives under the "extra-curricular" tab above.

  • Major drive to make resilience the fourth 'R' in education
    Schools are well used to supporting and tracking pupils' academic progress and pushing for resources to deliver the best outcomes. But how do they measure up when it comes to promoting student wellbeing and ensuring that, as well as the traditional three Rs, they pay enough attention to the development of other Rs, such as 'resilience' and 'realising' the potential of each individual child?
  • 'Everything we do is mindful of the children'
    They have no green space, but it hasn't stopped Principal Barbara Hanamy and her pupils creating a garden.
