World Book Day 2021
This year was a bit different as our younger pupils were the only classes present in school on the day. However, this didn’t stop the Senior classes from marking World Book Day at home. Our younger pupils dressed up and brought in their favourite book to share with their class while our senior pupils sent in videos and photographs presenting their favourite book.
Friendship Day 2022
On June 8th we celebrated Friendship Day at Convent Primary School. It was great to see so many pupils wearing their jumpers inside out to represent that how we look on the outside may not reflect how we feel on the inside. First class presented a whole school assembly on the theme of friendship. Our new canine friend Frank really enjoyed the girls singing! A massive thank you to everyone who donated towards our Friendship Bench and Friendship Stop. We raised just over three hundred euros!

With the help of John we planted many different varieties of trees such as birch, oak, pine and beech trees.
