Christmas is the spirit of giving without a thought of getting. It is happiness because we see joy in people. It is forgetting self and finding time for others. It is discarding the meaningless and stressing the true values.

Welcome Back!

The BestWe’d like to welcome back all our students for the 2015/2016, a special welcome to all our incoming first year students. We hope that Saint Eunan’s will provide you with an education and an experience that will equip you for taking on everything that life can throw at you. We bid last years Leaving Certificate students a fond farewell as they embark on the next stage of their lives, leaving behind good memories in the College.

I hope to update you regularly on what is happening in the College this year, so tune back for all the news as it happens. I’m also here in my office, located adjacent to Mr.Darby’s for any inquires you may have throughout the year.

Eilish.
