Scoil Róis do the double!
Scoil Róis Mini Olympic Handball teams outdid themselves in Cappagh Park this week as they represented our school in the County Finals. We are so proud to report that our U11 girls and our U 13 girls teams have qualified for the All Irelands which will be played at the end of April in Gormanstown. They played their hearts out and we are so proud of them. Our boys U11 also did their best but it wasn’t their day. We are also so proud of them for reaching a County Final. Congratulations to their coaches and all involved 👏👏👏

It all started with a dot!
Take a look at our beautiful new school mural.
Each child in the school contributed ‘a dot’ to this special piece of art inspired by Peter H.Reynolds’ ‘The Dot’, a story that encourages children to see just how creative they can be!
