We have had a very busy year here in Askea BNS. We have been involved in so many sports and activities. We got to our first Cuman na mBunscol final in 23 years. We entered teams into more sporting events than ever. We made a huge effort to be more active both in and out of the classroom this year. We had out biggest Active School’s Week to date. All classes really enjoyed their action packed school tours. We ended the school year with the very exciting news that we have earned our SECOND Active School Flag. We want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped us achieve this. We look forward to seeing you all at our flag raising ceremony in the new school year. Have a great summer and see you all in September for another active year.
