Battle of the Wits
Four TY students will attend the Battle of the Wits TY quiz in the Longford Arms hotel on Thursday. They will be competing against schools from all over Longford. We hope they do their best and represent our school well.
On Wednesday the 20th of November our school hosted its Open Day and Open Night for the upcoming first years. For the Open Day, 147 of local primary school pupils attended and received a full tour of the school. Along the way, they saw many familiar faces as all 1st year students were in classrooms showing what they had learned since leaving primary school. There was an excellent turnout to the Open Night as well, with a huge number of parents and 6th class students attending the event. Just a reminder that enrollment is now open for the incoming first years. Well done to everyone who helped make the event such a great success!
