P7 Team Success at St. Louis Tournament


Our Primary 7 boys have returned home from St Louis Kilkeel Primary School Tournament as Shield winners.  The tournament was very well attended with 12 local primary schools competing.  The boys navigated a tough group stage and quickly dispatched Carrick Primary School, Burren in the semi final.  They took on Kilbroney Intergrated, Rostrevor in the Final and quickly built up some early scores to keep their opponents at bay until the final whistle.  Thank you to Mr McGahon and Mr Mussen for all their coaching throughout the year, it has really paid off.  Thanks to Mrs Aisling Smyth for helping with Transport and Miss Laura Morgan for her backroom support of the 2 coaches.

Congratulations to Fiadh Murray who was selected to play at half time of the Down and Derry Ladies Ulster Championship game in Pairc Ésler on Sunday. 

Maith thú Fiadh and we look forward to seeing you play in the famous Red and Black again in the future!


Primary 4 First Holy Communion

Wow! What a special time we had today with the girls and boys in Primary Four, as they received the sacrament of Holy Communion in Our Lady of the Assumption Church, Newcastle.

It was a beautiful ceremony.

The children were very respectful and showed great reverence throughout the Ceremony.   All the hard work they put in really showed.

They were a credit to their families and we are immensely proud of them!
