Triple treat

A successful week for the girls Gaelic football team with 3/3 wins.

The first match took place in bushy park where the girls got their first win.

The Divine Word side were intimidated by their opponent’s side but it didn’t stop the forward line from pushing several points past them.


The second match was only 24 hours later on the same playing field but that didn’t stop them from bringing home yet another win.


The third and final match was in S.t Enda’s park where the girls fought hard for the last win of the week.


Among the heroes of the week were Katie, Ciara and Roslyn. Over the three days the score line totaled double figures. Divine word congratulates everyone involved, It only uphill from now on!


A special thanks to Roslyn in Mr Reilly’s class for speaking with us this week.

Congratulations to all the children on their school walk today. We were lucky with the weather. A special thanks to our fantastic Parents Association for the treats and for helping us to safely cross the road. Don’t forget to bring in your sponsorship cards over the next few days.



On Friday the 3rd of June 2016, the 6th classes (Mr Mangan’s & Ms. Hayes’s) went to Baltinglass for their school trip. The bus journey took approximately an hour and it was rather loud but that was very understandable as everyone was so excited. The classes were sorted into groups and each group was taken away to a different activity. At 13:00 everyone was brought up to the cafeteria and ate, and then went off to a different activity. The activities included Archery, Kayaking, and Abseiling, rock climbing and orienteering! At the end of the day, everyone was counted and boarded the bus, for another rather loud bus trip.
