Organisers from the school said that they were very grateful to all the support they received from parents, to Seamus Hyland for coaching and Paul Friel and Seamus Hyland for referring.
As well as participating in sports, students in the school are also exploring their musical sides. Music Generation Laois have provided an opportunity to 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th classes to take part in a choral programme for the year.
