Seven Clare Garda Youth Awards awards were given out to amazing and deserving young people/youth groups in the Woodstock Hotel in Ennis today and we were fortunate to have two of those winners as our students.  Congratulations to Aaron Hunt on winning an individual award, nominated for all his work in organising the Patrick McKeogh Memorial Tractor Run  which raises much needed funds for charities in our community, and to Daniel Spaight on winning an individual award nominated for bravely sharing his story with cancer and educating us all on how to overcome life’s challenges with humour. Daniel has been chosen to go forward to represent Clare at the  National Garda Youth Awards. Thanks to all at Shannon Airport Group and Clare Gardaí for such a wonderful and humbling event, as always  We could not be more proud of these young men, a credit to their families, their school and their communities.

Well done to our TY students who ran a Club Colours Day as part of their GAA Future Leaders Programme and raised €290 for Killaloe/Ballina Community & Family Resource Centre. Hannah, Kate & Julia recently presented the money raised to the centre’s manager Kees.

Graduation 2024

We said goodbye to the Class of ‘24 yesterday, after 6 short years of having them in our classrooms and hallways.

We wish them every success on the paths they choose to travel on from here and we look forward to having them back for visits to tell us of all their adventures, mistakes and learnings that they gather from here on out.

We will miss their faces and their antics and we hope they spread their wings and soar to new heights of freedom!

Talent Show 2024

On Thursday May 16th our Talent Show was held as part of the inaugural Fresh Eyes Festival.

After holding heats in early May, 10 finalists were picked to perform at the final. There was an extremely high and broad range of talents this year from singing to dancing to beatboxing.

All students performed exceptionally well on the day and made the decision of picking a winner very difficult for our judges Aodán Ó Dubhghaill and Louise Harrison.

After difficult deliberations the judges announced Gráinne Scullane, 6th year student, as our winner.

Congratulations to all students who took part!
