2nd Year History Workshop
Historian Mike Moylan visited Naas CBS today for a history workshop with all 2nd years. Mike in his dramatic and colourful way recreated over 400 years of American history. His costumes, props and of course weapons are always a big hit. Mike really does bring history to life! The boys loved seeing Mike again. Last year Mike gave them a WWI workshop equally enjoyable.

Voluntary Annual Appeal 2018-19
Thank you very much to anyone who has already contributed to the Annual Appeal. This appeal for voluntary contributions is necessary to support the school in providing a range of extra curricular activities, a school counselling service and the development of school facilities, including the development of an all-weather facility. As you may be aware the Voluntary Secondary School sector is underfunded and unfortunately we have to ask for your support to provide the best facilities for our students. We are of course aware that there are a number of families who cannot afford to contribute and we completely understand and accept this fact. This is a Voluntary contribution and if you are in a position to contribute we would really appreciate it. Our online EasyPaymentsPlus facility is available on our website and through the 'Shop' section on the app - please use this facility if you wish to contribute. Please see attached PDF for further information about this appeal and about tax breaks associated with contributions of €250 and above. Please contact us if you have any queries. Your continued support is greatly appreciated. https://af9b90f3f28b20e79a8c-b811c69588bad063512eb87d4fe17a81.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/pdf/4242_20190320122248.pdf
