Since 1944, the Holy Ghost Fathers (Spiritans) have provided an all - inclusive education for boys of primary school age.  Today this tradition is continued by a highly qualified dedicated staff who provide a safe and caring learning environment from boys from Junior Infants to Sixth form.  Boys who join the school receive an education which emphasises academic progress in addition to the spiritual, sporting and artistic development of each child. 


On Friday 13th January Fourth Form took part in the RDS Primary Science Fair. The experiment that the boys displayed was titled "How Dirty Are Our Hands?". The class began preparing for the Science Fair in November when we carriedout the initial experiment in class to see the level of germs and bacteria on our hands with and without hand sanitiser. Over the next month the boys dilligently studied the results of their initial investigations. We concluded from our results that we should have hand sanitiser in all the classrooms in our school, and also in our hallways.
