Summer holidays!!!

As we come to the end of another successful school year, all of us here at Ss Peter and Paul JNS would like to wish all our students, parents and extended families a very happy and safe summer.
 It will be a very exciting summer for three members of staff as Ms Fagan, Ms O Hora and Ms Keane are getting married. We hope they have a wonderful day and that the sun continues to shine for their special days. 
We are truly sorry to lose Mr Forristal, Ms O Brien and Ms Regan this year. They are all fantastic teachers and we wish them all the best in their new jobs in various schools. 
We want to offer the children who are leaving us to move to St. Molaga's school in September our very best wishes. We are sure you will all enjoy a smooth transition in your new school.

Don't forget school finishes at 12pm tomorrow the 30th June and will reopen on Tuesday 1st September.
Enjoy the holidays everybody!

Hurling Blitz

On Thursday 12th June, the SS Peter and Paul's Hurling Team took part in the annual Balbriggan Parish Hurling Blitz in O' Dwyers. The team was made up of children from First and Second Class.  After five tough matches, our school was declared the winner with a win in the final over a talented Balscadden side. The children were great sports, congratulating the other teams in the tournament. A special thank you must be made to Barry and the rest of the people in O' Dwyers who organised the event. It was great fun and everyone involved had a very enjoyable day. Congratulations to our champion Hurlers: Sean Creamer, Jamie Murray, Daniel Nolan, Callum Tierney, Shane Clarke, Callum Johnston, Ryan Tiernan, Adam Kenny, Daniel Kelly, Noah Lyons, Matthew Stuart & Darragh Cullen. You have done the school proud!
