Presentation Day: Presentation Sisters and friends of Nano Nagle, all over the world, celebrate the Feast of the Presentation of Mary in the Temple on the 21st November each year. Our school is a proud Ceist school and on Wednesday we gathered once again as a school community to celebrate the work of Nano Nagle.

Science Week: This week in school we celebrated science week in school , the science department ran various competitions throughout the week including the very popular naming of Mr.Quinns frog who is a new addition to our school community. The student council organised various events for students during the lunchtimes during the week and interesting science facts and jokes were read out over the intercom to celebrate all things science.

Term Exams : Our term exams will take place next week , all information for students can be found on our website and app. We wish them the best of luck.

Stand Up Awareness Week : Belong To’s Stand Up Awareness Week is a time for post-primary schools, youth services, and Youth reach in Ireland to join us and take a stand against homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying. This week in our school community we took the opportunity to take steps to make spaces safe and supportive for LGBTQ+ young people. Our wonderful student council had an array of posters and infographs spread across the school and on the digimedia, as well as announcements and emails sent out about a queer person/significant moment in queer history each day of the week.
On Friday 18th we will have a non uniform day, each year group will wear a colour of the rainbow flag as a celebration of the LGBTQ+ community.

3rd Year Parent Teacher Meeting : Our 3rd Year Parent Teacher Meeting will took place on Thursday the 17thof November. It was great to meet with Parents over zoom to discuss students progression.
