A quick drive through the parish will show you the mounting excitement for the lads as we head into the Westmeath Intermediate Football Final this weekend. To add to that excitement, and to support the boys in the final, John Nally of Nally’s Circle K Ballymahon has generously offered to sponsor a 'Guess the Final score competition' for our school pupils. Each pupil gets to enter the draw for free. The top prize of €100 is up for grabs and will go to the lucky pupil(s) that guess the final score on Saturday. If no winner, the nearest score will apply. Scores will be collected from homework journals on Friday, so put your thinking hats on and help the children come up with a final score for Friday. We wish Mike Tumelty, his management team, Captain Aidan Burke and all our players and past pupils the very best of luck on Saturday. An Teanga Abú!

We had so much fun welcoming our new Junior Infants and their parents to school this morning. Everyone was so happy and joyful and could not wait to get into big school. Thank you to all the Mums and Dads who came along in their PPE, got a quick photo and headed off again. It's great to be back and this was a wonderful start!
A few short video clips to give you all a virtual tour around the school, so that children and parents have an idea of what to expect when we are all back on Monday 31st August. Now that all the preparations are in place we are really excited and cannot wait to see all your shining happy faces again!
The school has been a hive of activity over the past number of weeks in preparation for our return to school on Friday 28th August. Below you will find snapshots of the school and some of the measures we have taken to ensure the safety of the children and staff while at school. We are very much looking forward to welcoming the children back and we hope to have a happy and safe school year.
Congratulations to the children, parents, Fr. Jerry, Clare Sheerin, John Burke and the teachers on their contributions to making the First Holy Communion in Tang Church last Saturday morning a delightful occasion. It was clear that all involved worked hard to make the day a meaningful and holy day in the lives of the children and their families. Everything including the artwork, singing, readings, and prayers was wonderful. Well done to everyone.
