I Run For Fun 2017
Our TY's took off to Cloughjordan Cookery school on the 9th February with both Ms.O'Donnell and Mrs.Lowe. Where they learnt how to grow a vegetable garden, pick vegetables, cook in the kitchen and serve food. Each student got to cook from scratch using the home grown vegetables from the garden. They made Potato and Leak Soup with bread rolls and home made butter, then in the afternoon they made Chicken Curry with rice and they made Naan bread to go with it and they finished off by making Chocolate Brownies. It was a fantastic day and the staff/chefs at Cloughjordan were brilliant.Read more ...

The run was timed and all the students got to refuel at the end of their run by having some water,oranges and banana's that were kindly sponsored by Centre of Kilfinane.

What Scoil Pól Offers!
Scoil Pól provides the best of modern facilities:
Communication with Parents
Scoil Pól recognises that parents are the primary educators of their children and places great emphasis on regular communication with parents. We listen to parental concerns and work in close partnership with parents to ensure that students are cared for in a nurturing and supportive environment.
Small class sizes in Scoil Pól ensure individual attention and support excellence in teaching and learning.
"Students learn more and behave better when they receive high levels of understanding, caring and genuineness".
(Watkins and Thackery)
In January 2017 Dr. Maureen Griffin came to Scoil Pol to speak to our students and also to their parents in the evening, about the online protection, and what to be aware of. Maureen kindly provided material for the website for you at home to download. Click here to go to the page with the resources.
