School Quiz Team Participates in National Final

Once again, our junior school quiz team qualified for the national finals of the Credit Union Quiz. The team spent many weeks preparing for the final which was held in Dublin last Sunday.

There were fifty teams representing all corners of the country, and the great news is that the Holy Cross Junior team came second overall! This was a fantastic achievement, as the standard was very high. To add to the excitement the team got to meet the O’Donovan brothers, who were special guests at the event.

Congratulations to our great team, and to all who helped them to prepare so well for the competition.

Spring Nature Walk

As part of their Aistear programe, the senior infants are currently  learning about spring. They spent some time in the school grounds looking for signs of spring. The children in room 8 were delighted to see the daffodil bulbs that they had planted in autumn in full bloom. The children also found trees bursting with blossom, primroses, crocuses, and frogspawn.
