Split the Pot Fundraiser


Congratulations to our winner and runner up in the recent Split the Pot fundraiser draw. Many thanks to all the parents for their generous contributions.

Visit from Stradbally Fire Service


Not only did Santa arrive by fire engine, but the lads from the Fire Service were very generous with their time and allowed the children to look at the truck and climb on board. It was both exciting and interesting to see the truck up close.

Santa’s Visit to the School


The screech of sirens…The jingle of bells…It must be Santa arriving by Fire Engine! We had a wonderful visit from Santa recently where all the boys and girls got to meet the great man. Each class got to spend some time with him to share stories and hear all about his preparations for Christmas. Santa was helped out by members of the Parents Association and each child was given a wonderful class photo and a Folens Christmas annual. Santa also revealed the winners of the Parents Association art competition. It was a lovely day and everyone enjoyed it very much.
