Events & Fundraisers

After Communion Party 

Our amazing PA  organised a fabulous event on Saturday, after the communion, for all the children in 2nd class. 

Outdoor Aistear

This year, the PA asked us for a wish list and one of the big ticket items we wanted was a storage unit for our outdoor Aistear toys.

This was delivered last week and Mr Russell got straight to work assembling the unit. Thank you Mr Russell.

The general parent body also answered out call by donating lots of preloved toys that are getting a second chance with all the boys and girls in the junior classes, who get to access this wonderful resources. Thanks to everyone who donated. 

Easter 2024

The Parents Association got us all very 'eggcited' about their Easter competition this year. Each class had to guess how many mini eggs were in the jar. There was a prize of an Easter egg for the closest guess in each class.

The staff also got made some 'eggcellent' guesses. Well done to Ms Keary and Ms M McKeown who were closest. The answer was 434!

Drogheda  Credit Union

Many thanks to Drogheda Credit Union for their generous donation of 500 towards the cost of  the confirmation robes for our 6th class pupils. It was featured in the March addition of the Meath Coaster also on page 18 . 

Book Fair 2024

Our annual Scholastic Book Fair from the 20th-27th February. All classes will have an opportunity to view and buy the books during this time. Class teachers will tell you nearer the time what days the students will be viewing and buying the books. You can look at to get an idea of what kind of books may be available during the fair. Please note not all titles may be available at the time of our fair. This is just a guide so that parents can see a bigger selection of the books. Thanks as always to our amazing Parents’ Association for making it run so smoothly every year. All funds we get from this event help to stock our classroom and school libraries. A video of our school library is attached. It’s growing daily and we now have over 6,160 books in stock! If you have any books or soft furnishings that you wish to donate please drop them to the reception anytime. Every donation is much appreciated.

Grandparents Day 

Grandparents’ Day…..what a great buzz there was in the school as we welcomed hundreds of grandparents who had travelled from near and far to visit their grandchildren in our school! It was heartwarming to see grandparents with their grandchildren, chatting with neighbours and staff, and some even catching up with friends they hadn’t seen in a long time. Thank you to everyone who came along and made the day a very special day for the children, and for us all.

Thank you to the staff who went to great lengths to make grandparents’ visit such a unique experience in each class, along with those who helped in corridors and at the lift, and to Mr. Russell for all the heavy-lifting!

As always, the Parents’ Association worked tirelessly serving teas, coffees, treats and quality chat! Our magnificent school choir performed a number of beautiful songs accompanied and guided by our many talented teachers. Grandparents’ Day simply wouldn’t have been the success it was, if it hadn’t been for the very warm welcome of the Student Council and Sixth Class helpers who accompanied grandparents to the various classrooms, throughout the day. They were truly outstanding and we are so proud of them. Finally, thank you to Ms. Slacke and Mrs. McEvoy for all their hard work for Grandparents’ Day.

We are in the process of compiling the many photos that were taken on the day. We’ll put them together in a slideshow & share it with you here, over the coming days.

We’re looking forward to seeing you all again next year, already! 


Christmas Raffle and Mince Pie Morning

What a morning we had in Whytes! We all got into the Christmas spirit, between the delicious mince pies, provided by Centra, and the steaming hot cups of tea & coffee from Whytes, and then our amazing choir.

The choir entertained a huge crowd of people for over an hour with their amazing singing. Thank you to Ms M Fox, Mrs Corrigan, Mr Carew, Ms O'Carroll, and all the children for their wonderful performance.

We had over 50 prizes in our raffle and I have attached the list of winners. A huge 'thank you' again to all our sponsors, we really appreciate every single donation.

Congratulations to all the prize winners. I hope your day was made a whole lot brighter by your win!

We raised €5435 with idonate - after we paid their admin fee the total was€5222.56. This morning €109.50 was donated so the final amount raised was a whooping €5332.06!!!!!!!

This money is going to make such a huge difference to the children in the school. We are extremely grateful to each and everyone of you. I would personally like to also thank the AMAZING Parent's Association for their Trojan work organising the raffle. There was so much to do and they did it so well and seamlessly
