It was a great day for our school as past pupil and international athlete Ciara Everard performed the official opening of our school extension. Ciara told a big gathering of students,past and present teachers and principals ,parents, guardians, friends and St.John of God sisters that she had discovered her love for running as a seven year old when she came first in a race at Kilkenny Castle Park organised by her then class teacher Ms. O’ Neill. The classrooms were blessed by Monsignor Michael Ryan and assisted by Fr. Dan Carroll chairperson of the Board of Management . The pupils were treated to a disco in the hall in the evening and great fun was had by all .
