Active Sports Week

Next week is Active Sports Week in Bishop Shanahan N.S.  We are looking forward to having a week of sports activities, fun and games.  Children should wear suitable clothing, i.e. tracksuits, shorts and runners, all week.  Extra water, sun tan lotion and anti-histamines/inhalers, etc., may be required.


Weather permitting, we have arrangements in place for parents to come in on Tuesday to spectate – see times below for your child’s class.  All activities will take place on the school pitch so please go directly there at the allocated time for your child’s class.

Ice-cream Friday is a relatively new tradition in BSNS but it is something we have all come to enjoy.  This year we have decided to hold the event in aid of Downs Syndrome Ireland in conjunction with HB Ice-cream.  The school will make a donation to Downs Syndrome Ireland.  You may, if you wish, support this cause by donating €2 on the day.
