Knex Wars!

As part of  the Active School Initiative, we incorporate actives into our mainstream lessons. A typical example of this is Knex Wars. This is where each class uses Knex to create prototype vehicles, which they then test in the school hall. Great fun and an excellent means of getting physical activity into our maths lessons. Well done to all involved.

Books and Sport

We have a kickstarter program  for the senior classes, whereby pupils are given a variety of set books to read on a termly basis. A major section of the reference module contains a large selection of sports books which are very popular. The DK Sports is particularly useful as it explains in very clear detail all the major sports.


Carlow Cup.
