Teacher and ICT co-ordinator Ms. Regina Power organised her annual St Brigid's Cross Fundraiser in aid of The Ballinasloe Social Services.

This year, Ms Power managed to galvanise staff, teachers and community alike and succeeded in planning and overseeing the production and sale of St Brigid's crosses to raise a sum of €2,713.14.
Children of all ages and a few adults too, really got into the spirit by dressing up for World Book Day in the school.
