Long-tailed Tit. Picture by Michael Finn.

Between December and February each year,Bird Watch Ireland asks members of the public to keep note of the highest number of each bird species visiting their garden every week.  They also ask for information on the size of the garden being surveyed, the kinds of food, if any, being offered to the birds, and so on.  Taking part is fun, easy and an ideal way to get to know your garden birds better; it also makes an ideal school project.Take part in the survey here.

There are changes to school transport eligibility which came into effect from the commencement of this current school year.

These changes mean that from this school year onwards, children are eligible for transport where they reside not less than 4.8 kms from and are attending their nearest post primary school/education centre as determined by the Department/Bus Éireann, having regard to ethos and language.

27 Musicals Later

E-mail Print PDF

We are in our 25th year of the school but we are embarking on our 27th Musical Production. The fact that we had two in some years accounts for this. A unique feature of the Musical is that we invariably have two and occasionally three casts performing on the different nights. It is the ultimate nightmare for sound technicians but ensures optimum opportunity for the abundance of talented performers.

It is difficult to talk of favourites but a full production of HMS Pinafore which managed "to sail" in the Ballincollig G.A.A. Pavilion in 1987 in our first year was memorable. "Jesus Christ Superstar" was the first production to feature in the School Culturlann. Les Miserables was a first for an amateur group in Ireland and one of the most ambitious undertakings.
