Vocabulary Enrichment Programme

We began our Vocabulary Enrichment Programme with our 1st years. This programme improves all areas of communication listening, speaking, reading and writing.  It is a great introduction to second level literacy for all.


We were delighted to welcome back EMovement to the school this week.  Transition year and Leaving Certificate Applied students enjoyed the workshop and even broke a National Record during the day.  Thanks to EMovement for two great days of workshops.
