The Cluny Staff Chaplaincy Team and some 5th year helpers were busy this morning preparing for Le Chéile Day before students came into school. Every student received a positive or inspiring message and a treat on their locker. Thanks to Ms. Keenan, Ms. Keenaghan, Ms. O'Brien, Ursula, Mr. White, Neysa Mates Dunne, Aoife MacNeill and all our helpers that made this possible!

Leaving certificate practical exams and orals will take place over the Easter break. We would like to wish the very best of luck to all students in their language orals and subject practical exams.
