Shane Mooney visited our school yesterday (Tuesday, 18th December) and brought along the Pro 14 Cup and the Heineken Champions Cup to show to different classes. It was a great treat for us all to hold the cups and ‘boy were they heavy’!! Check out our photo gallery!

6th Class paid a visit to Dubin today to see Robin Hood at The Helix. The panto began at 11am and the characters of Sherwood Forest brought mayhem, laughter, music and song to an electrically-charged audience! The pupils gave the show a massive “thumbs up” and sang all the way home!
Aidan Grey, from An Taisce, recently visited both 6th Classes to talk about Global Sustainability. We learned about the close relationship between food, life and the planet, and how these are under extreme pressure nowadays. We all need to work together to make the world a better and more sustainable place for future generations.
On Monday 12th of November, Room 27 went on a trip to Dublin. We arrived at Croke Park where we took the very interesting and historical tour of the stadium bringing us right up to the top of the 82,300 seater stadium.
We saw the pitch, the media boxes, dressing rooms, refs rooms, presentation and players lounge.
On the way home we stopped to play football and eat at the visitors centre in the Phoenix Park.
What a great day!!

Today (12th November) forty-eight 6th Class pupils preparing for Confirmation travelled to the Emmaus Centre in Swords for a Confirmation Retreat. The pupils participated in a variety of activities including workshops, discussion groups, games and prayerful meditation. The friendly staff provided refreshments in the morning and a hot meal at lunchtime. In no time at all it was time to depart the centre and return to Trim. An enjoyable and fulfilling day was had by all.
Fifty -two 6th Class pupils are taking part in the Crocus Project 2018-19, an initiative sponsored by Holocaust Education Trust Ireland. On 24th October, each pupil planted a crocus bulb in the grass area outside Room 15 in memory of one and a half million Jewish children who were victims of the Nazis in World War II.
The fifty-two yellow flowers will bloom at the end of January or the beginning of February 2019, around the time of Holocaust Memorial Day on 27th January.
After Halloween, the pupils will read and study John Boyne’s novel, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, a story set in the 1940s focusing on the Holocaust and WWII.
