John Lonergan Talk-
Very interesting and fun talk by John Lonergan, held in the Tullacmongan Resource Centre on Monday 22nd Nov 2016.
The talk was on Parenting and it's Challenges.

Thanks to all, young and not so old, who came along and took part in the Table Quiz in the school last Thurs 25th Feb.  A great night of fun, entertainment and laughter (thanks to our quiz-master Liam Murphy!).  A special thanks to the students and staff who assisted on the night; PJ for the refreshments and the many who donated prizes for the raffle. This event was to kick-off our fund-raising for the new Sports Hall and facilities, netting €1,670 and was run by a sub-committee of the Parents Association. We look forward to your continued support by all for future events.


If you have any school uniform available for recycling, please contact Heather at the above e-mail address so that the details can be posted on the web-site. 

We have been asked to help the school up-date its library, and join in its campaign to encourage reading. Any donations of good-quality books are welcomed.
