Our Christmas Fair was an outstanding success and many thanks to all who supported it.
Over 30 External Stalls were on show, who had some fantastic products for sale, together with a few of our own Novelty Stalls. A few stalls included Cork Florists, Blarney Chocolate Factory, Irish Atlantic Sea Salt, Ballycotton Seafood, Sugar Mama and Carroll Cycles. There were some lovely craft stalls with jewellery, knitwear, wood turning crafts and local artists.
We had a number of Novelty Stalls of our own with a ‘Games Room’ in the Canteen – Mario Kart, Rugby Throw, Duck Pond and a Snowball Challenge, while in the main hall, parents and students were busy at stalls such as our Spinning Wheel, Cupcake Decorating, Hot Dogs & Hot Chocolate, Marvellous Mugs, Chocolate Tombola and many, many more.
It was a great afternoon in the school and even Santa had time to call!! All proceeds from the day was raised for the Zambia Immersion Project.

Fifth and Sixth Classes enjoyed a great day in Dublin. In the morning, they played three competitive games against St Mary’s Junior School and were provided with ample refreshments afterwards by our generous hosts.
Then it was off to the Aviva to cheer on Ireland as they played their third and final November International against Australia. This going to be a tough game for Ireland, who brilliantly raced into a 17-0 lead after 15mins. Australia came storming back to level by the short whistle, but thankfully, Ireland held their nerve and recorded a great 26-23 victory.
Our boys really enjoyed the day out.

Third, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Classes had the opportunity to visit the Discovery 2014 Exhibition at City Hall as part of Science Week.
There were various stalls from local well known companies like Tyndall, Lifetime Lab and EMC, as well as representatives from the Defence Forces, UCC, CIT & Fota Wildlife Park.
The students engaged in activities such as Operation, Buzz-Off, Fingerprinting Analysis, the Digestive System and had fun with Robotics. They were also treated to a ‘Magic Show’ with a difference.
The group also had a chance to meet with current Cork Senior Hurling Star, Lorcán McLaughlin, who was at the CIT Stand.
