We are really looking forward to two very special dates in our school calendar which are happening this week. The children in the Junior end are so excited about their end of year sports and the students in 6th class, together with their parents, families and teachers are excited to celebrate their graduation from St Angela's. A warm welcome extended to all involved.
Our 5th Class were involved in the wonderful Fighting Words programme this year which enabled each girl to author, edit, illustrate and publish her own book. We had a fantastic book launch in school on Monday. Some of the celebrity guests included Darina & Noreen from our local library and Noreen Walsh, Chairperson of our Board of Management. Darina informed us abput this year's Summer Stars initiative. The event finished with a celebration of fine food!
Such a magnificent array of our work from all our classes. For our end of year Art & Craft display we put together a very beautiful art display to showcase the fantastic work being done by the children in St Angela's. Congratulations to them and to their teachers. We are so proud of you all. Take some time to study the deatail on each board. It's worth it!

What a wonderful way to celebrate their work for the Blue Star Programme!

Well done to Ms English and her wonderful Green Schools Committee on their very successful co ordination of our end of year Action Day. Today we had a very 'fruitful' clean up of the grounds, followed by the presentation of prizes to the top battery recycler in each class!

Each of our tours has an #activeschools component and are all truly educational in the broadest sense. Many Thanks to our staff for being so generous with their time and ensuring that memories are made for all. These are #happydays
