FíS National Finals

For the 3rd year in a row, Carrig N.S. reached the National Finals of the Fís (Film in Schools) competition. The pupils from 4th, 5th and 6th classes attended an awards ceremony in the Helix Theatre recently, joining 21 other schools from around the country. Our film “Brush to the Future” won an award for “best Special Effects”. It is a testament to the great work of all the pupils involved and that of our Speech and Drama teacher, Mr. Jarred Madden that we have reached the finals again this year. Well done to all concerned on a wonderful achievement and we look forward to planning and making our new film over the next few months.

Science Workshop

Our Senior classes attended a Science workshop in Birr Castle in conjunction with Science Week. A very enjoyable and informative time was had by all.

We will have a school mass on Wednesday next at 1.30p.m. in the school. It will be followed by a tree planting ceremony in memory of Kieran Byrne who died tragically during the year. Kieran drove our school bus for the past few years and was very popular with parents, pupils and staff alike.
