St Patricks' NS making waves!
Our trips to Graigcullen swimming pool resumed on Monday, 9th September. Ninety-
Classes are €7 per week per chilld with a reduction for siblings. Places are filled on a first come, first served basis so it is advisable to book your places early.
Learning to swim is not only a very important life skill but is also a very enjoyable form of exercise. It is our hope that as many children as possible will have the chance to attend over the coming weeks.

We hope to introduce some other activities in the coming weeks in this area such as giant board games, hula hoops etc.
