Forest school learning in action

We are delighted to have been nominated as Best School in The Community  in our Southside Community & Sports Awards 2019.

“This is going to be one of the most closely contested categories as schools play such a vital role in our communities, often over and above the area of education. While academic excellence certainly merits a nomination, there are a multitude of other reasons why schools – big or small – should be entered into this category.”

The Event is on in The Talbot, Stillorgan Hotel on Friday 26th April @ 7pm with a drinks Reception & a meal where the Awards will be presented,  Joe Duffy is MC. and the dress code is Smart/Casual.

Two teachers are representing the school. Further tickets can be purchased on https://dublinpeopleawards.com/tickets/
