As the 2021/22 school year draws to a close, we have a short round up on events for the school year.

We wish to acknowledge the work of the school principals Ms Doyle & Mr Coyle and teachers during another difficult year, however we were delighted to see a return to normality in 2022.  A huge thank you to Karen & Natasha and the teachers & staff for their support during the year.   

Goodbye to 6th class

We wish all of the 6th class pupils and their parents the very best of luck as they leave St. Pius X and move on to post-primary school. We hope they have enjoyed their time in St. Pius X and have many happy memories of their primary school days.

The PA were delighted to continue the tradition of giving each of our 6th class girls and boys a gift pack to send them off on their post primary journey.

The Fittest Class Activity Challenge

Over the first weekend in April St Pius X boys & girls took to the open air and covered a total of 33,849 Kilometres!                

Thank you to all children, parents and guardians who took part. It was amazing to see so many children take part in the challenge and the positive feedback we received was wonderful. 

€9,490! has been raised for the schools and we are very grateful to all who contributed.  This is a tremendous amount to have been so kindly donated and will be put to good use by the principals and board of management of both schools.  We would also like to thank all the class reps who collated the results for each class. We couldn’t have done this fundraiser without your help.

The Heather Cup

It was fantastic to see The Heather Cup back this May and the grounds of Terenure College buzzing with excitement.  It was a most enjoyable few days of sunshine (and rain!) and soccer.

Well done to all the children from 3rd to 6th class in St. Pius X boys and girls’ schools for taking part.

The Children’s Art Exhibition

What an amazing bunch of artists we have in our schools! We had a great two days in June viewing their art and parents got the opportunity to buy their children’s artwork. Thanks to everyone for contributing. It was a great success and the children really enjoyed it.

Ice Cream Van

June 28th saw the return of our ice cream van, a super treat for all the children especially for the last day in St Pius for our 6th classers.

Looking ahead to September…

We are delighted to announce the return of Thursday extra curricular classes, Home Work Club and Swimming…more information on this is being circulated from the school secretaries on our behalf and on our website  – so keep an eye out.
