For every one tonne of clothing the school will receive €200, or 20c per kilo. This is calculated quarterly. The more we use this clothing bank, the more funds we could raise for our school. Fundraiser.ie are also running a celebratecommunitycampagn.ie. Any organisation using their clothing banks can be nominated in a monthly draw. Feel free to nominate us as a worthy cause! ...

I don't think there's anything Carlow Educate Together kids cannot do at this point! Well done to all 💪
Our first Carlow Educate Together National School Bike Bus went really well this morning. We collected children from different points across Carlow Town as we went and enjoyed our active start to the day.
If you and/or your child would like to take part in the next Bike Bus we are looking for adult volunteers to help out occasionally. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are in a position to do this.
Thanks again to County Carlow Sports Partnership who helped enable this to happen. ... See MoreSee Less
Keep up the good work!
Mark loves it.
We had a great Bike Week 2023 and there were a huge amount of kids taking part in different activities over the week. Thanks to County Carlow Sports Partnership for the generous funding and to Jason from Cycling Safety for the lessons for the 5th classes leading up to our cycle down the Barrow. The infant classes and integration classes were practicing all week in the school grounds and we have a lot of newly independent cyclists with no stabilisers.
It was great to see the bike racks and the Geodome (the fanciest bike storage area in the country) full of bikes all week.
On Monday 22nd our school is going to trial it's first ever Bike Bus for the 4th - 6th class children. The Bike Bus will be run by parents and teacher volunteers and collect children on their bikes all across Carlow town on the way to school. This is a great start to Active Week which runs all next week. ... See MoreSee Less

#EU50 Visit to our school from Maltese Ambassador & local TD
We were delighted to welcome Giovanni Buttigeig, Ambassador to Ireland from Malta 🇲🇹 #embassyofmalta, & Kathleen Funchion, TD #kathleenfunchion as part of the #EU50 celebrations this week. They talked to children from the Students' Council and 5th & 6th classes. We heard about Malta and Giovanni spoke some Maltese for us. They were very impressed by the level of questions from the children. We were presented with a special EU 🇪🇺 flag & a book about Malta for our school. It is really important for us that children understand how society works and how they can take part in decision making that affects their lives. This was a great opportunity for the children to see representatives from political and civic engagement. ... See MoreSee Less
