Bringing out the best in every child we teach

Our school is a member of Cumann na mBunscol. Each year we participate in GAA football matches and run for our lives during the many Athletics competitions that take place.

GAA coach, Denis Carr and our own teacher, former Galway Footballer, Nora Griffin trains the GAA Team as an After-School activity each week in the hall. When the weather improves we move to our pitch close-by in Woodquay.
