|Wimbledon, here we come! One of the most popular locations in the school is the hall. Pupils wear the school tracksuit for all sporting activities here.|
|Using computers is serious stuff! Pupils at work in the school's computer room. All pupils come here at least once a week, but have additional opportunities for computer-based activities in their classroom.|

Typical Pupils: Only joking! Three third class children dress up. Dracula, Bones and the Boxer pose for a photograph. What lovely smiles!
Has anyone seen the playground? No this is not Ireland's largest lake. (That's Lough Neagh.) Our playground is submerged due to unusually heavy rain in early November.

Move your mouse over the image below to see some dancing. Do it quickly to get an idea of what it's really like!
|Dance, Dance, Dance! Also, for St. Patrick's Day, pupils performed a number of traditional Irish dances in the hall. Lots of parents came to give their support, and everyone had a great time.||
