Inclusion Week

We celebrated Inclusive Schools Week . This was a very happy celebration for everyone in our school.


Meath Enterprise Week

Congratulations to Sophie Keegan, Sophie Mooney, Grace Hoey and Cáit Melady, 3rd year, who ranked 3rd on Tuesday 19th November in the category “Best New Business Idea” during Meath Enterprise Week 2019. They created an App called Schools Hub, which is an application that allows students to store their own timetables, gives notifications about subjects for the next day, has a school calendar, an area for taking notes, student council issues, motivational tips, classical music and study tips. It will be available in the future on the android app store and free to download. TeacherMs. McCormack.
