Goodbye 6th class!

June 22nd, 2024

Today we said goodbye to our 6th class, the friendliest, kindest, most intelligent and energetic group you could ever meet! We wish them all the best in secondary school and they will be greatly missed by all here in Fanore. As they said themselves in their graduation speech- ‘school will never be the same without them!’ Some pictures and videos from their graduation mass and last days of school.

Sports Day

June 19th, 2024

The sun was out once again for our annual Sports Day! The children were in teams and participated in many different activities. Tug of war was the highlight of the day with Teachers Vs 6th Class and Girls Vs Boys!  Many thanks to Pat for supplying chips and all those who brought baked goods for after. It was great so see so many past pupils and parents come to enjoy the day.
