Open Night: The school Open Night takes place on Thursday, January 19. On the night the parents/guardians of boys who are starting post primary school in August 2023 will have the opportunity to view our excellent facilities, find out about the range of subjects available to students and will also get a chance to speak to students, staff and management about the school.

The night is very enjoyable - students perform a musical recital in the main foyer and refreshments will be served on the night.

Fun Run 2023: The annual Parents Association 5km/10km Fun Run takes place on Sunday, January 22; registration is from 10am and the run begins at 11am. The entry fee on the day is €5 for a student, €10 for an adult and €20 for a family.

The Parents Association have funded Surface Gos for the Additional Educational Needs Department and funded the refurbishment of classrooms to enhance the educational experience of our students. The school is grateful for the support of the following main sponsors: ABP Meats, Lyons of Limerick and Nenagh, Carey’s Glass and Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, without whom this event could not take place. The Parents Association will be giving prizes for the first female and male home, the first male juvenile and the first female juvenile home and the first student from the school across the line.

Fundraising events such as this Fun Run are extremely important to the school. Without the hard work of the Parents Association many worthwhile projects could not take place.
