Class and School Tours

Welcome to your new classroom. The following videos take you to different areas around school. At lunchtimes the children will play in the main playground. A great place to play with friends. We have the trim trail, games and fun floor paintings. Trinity Woods is an exciting place and next to that we have the Muga Pitch. The children will use the running track for 1K a day and they love to play on the field on sunny days. Once a week the children will visit the ICT Suite and will regularly visit the Children's Kitchen.
