A big thank you to Rachael & Grace who shared with us their achievements in Irish Dancing. They brought in their collection of trophies and medals, along with wearing their costumes and wigs and shared their experiences of competing at a high level in Irish Dancing. Recently they took part in the All Ireland Feis in City West, bringing home 3 thirds and 1 highly recommended. We wish them well as they prepare for the Worlds which takes place in Castlebar this summer.
Back in February, Cloontuskert NS was chosen by the Department of Education to partake in an evaluation of SESE: Geography.
