All parents also welcome to our end of year mass to celebrate a great year in St. Oliver’s N.S!
Junior and Senior Infants had a fantastic day at Ghan House for their school tour this year. They had they opportunity to see and name various types of fruit and vegetables. They also decorated freshly baked buns and gingerbread men with homemade icing. They had a tour of a herb garden and learned lots about what herbs are best to cook with. We then finished with a lovely teddy bear’s picnic and got to sample the goodies we decorated! We would like to say a special thank you to Paul and all the staff at Ghan House for their generosity. We had a ball!
Two of our talented pupils did themselves and their school proud when they achieved success in their gymnastics club. They demonstrated that hard work and determination surely make you succeed!
Useful information for parents on the new Snap Map feature in Snapchat.
If your child is using Snapchat, please ensure you talk to them about their location settings and recommend that they use ghost mode or only share their location with specific friends.
We had a fantastic day at our School Sports Day despite the bad weather. All pupils had fun during the races in the Foy Centre. Target shoot, penalty shoot, skittles and tug of war were enjoyed in the halla, while every pupil worked to earn points for their team.
Everybody in the school got a treat in the halla after the sports and the winning blue team even got lots of extra play!

Thank you from Ms Eileen and All the Staff and Pupils @St Oliver’s N.S.
Today the whole school got their Hi-Vis vests on and we went walking around our beautiful village, Carlingford. We are very proud of all the children in St. Oliver’s because from Junior Infants to 6th Class every child took part with great enthusiasm.
The 5th and 6th Class girls choreographed a dance routine for a song they liked for this year’s ‘Wake Up Shake Up’ activity for Active Flag Week. Each morning before school the girls have been leading all the pupils and staff in the dance routine. Everyone is really enjoying it and the 5th/6th Class girls are incredible dancers.
The children are having great fun with the ‘Drop Everything and Dance’ activity, which is part of Active Flag Week. The children are all very busy working when one member of the Active Flag Committee goes around all the classes ringing a bell saying ‘Drop Everything and Dance’. It is great fun.
