Well done to our senior football team on winning two group games and making it through to the quarter finals!
Their next match will be on the week starting October 9th.
St Patrick’s NS is delighted to announce that, from September 2024, the school will be co-educational. We look forward to welcoming boys and girls in the next school year! The application process will begin on 2nd October 2023.
Earlier today we were delighted to present a cheque to Anita, from Special Olympics Ireland, for the money raised from our Penalty Shoot-Out and Obstacle Course.
The presentation took place this morning at our final whole school assembly of the year. Anita spoke to all the pupils about where the money will go; describing how it helps those with intellectual disabilities to reach their full potential in sport.
Thanks again to Ms Rafter, Ms Gallagher and Ms Power who helped to organise and co-ordinate the events.
The two 3rd classes had a super time in Na Fianna earlier today taking part in a Gaelic football blitz against some other local schools.
The lads did really well in very warm conditions. (By all accounts they appreciated that the sprinklers were in action!)
Well done, boys!
Thanks to former St Pat’s pupil and current GPO, Donal Ryan, for organising!
We were delighted to host our ‘Penalty Shoot-Out’ in aid of Special Olympics once again this year. This is a much-loved event in St Pat’s BNS, and this year was no different.
Not to be outshone, our younger pupils completed a challenging and fun obstacle course in the Junior School!
The whole event was a huge success and we must give a massive ‘thank you’ to all who kindly sent in donations! We really appreciate the support shown by our St Pat’s families; thanks for the generous contributions to such a worthy cause.
Well done to the winners, and well done to all the pupils for showing great sportsmanship!
Finally, a huge ‘thank you’ must go to both Ms Gallagher and Ms Rafter for organising the event.

To mark National Bike Week this week our pupils, staff and parents were invited to join the cycle train for ‘Cycle on Wednesday’ or COW.
We had two meeting points, the sun shone, and the numbers surpassed our expectations! On arrival to the school we were met with some cheers and music playing. A great event to start the day!
We were proud of our boys wearing their helmets and cycling with such caution – well done, lads!
Thanks to all who participated, and to the local Gardaí for also showing their support!
Check out these photos that capture some of the action…
As we celebrate Earth Day on April 22nd every year, Ms Gallagher’s boys drew pictures to accompany the song ‘What a Wonderful World’.
In class they talked about ways to use less fossil fuels, less electricity and how to be kinder to our ‘Wonderful World’!
You can check out their lovely art work by downloading the Powerpoint below!
Well done, boys!
