The girls has a fantastic time at our Sports Day this year 🏆
From station games, relay races, sprints and of course, the bouncy castle, it was a great success! To top it all off, the girls got a special treat from Teddy's Ice Cream 🍦
Have a look at some of the highlights in the video below!
We remember our past pupil Aoife Beary who has sadly died as a result of the grievous injuries sustained in the Berkeley accident in June 2015. Our thoughts and prayers are with Aoife’s heartbroken family and friends on the loss of their beloved Aoife.
Aoife was a brave and inspirational young woman and we are proud and privileged that she was a pupil of our school. Aoife will always be remembered and honoured by her Hollypark family.
We also remember at this time our past pupil Eimear Walsh who died in Berkeley along with Eoghan Culligan, Niccolai Schuster, Lorcán Miller, Olivia Burke and Ashley Donohoe.
‘They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them.’

On Friday, December 3rd, we celebrated Music Day in Hollypark and had a brilliant time taking part in activities all week long. From listening and responding to different genres of music, exploring the orchestra, our fantastic Musical Theatre costumes to creating spectacular music-inspired art pieces, our Music Day was "practically perfect in every way". Check out our amazing costumes, artwork and glimpses into some performances from this week. A big thank you to Ms. Duffy and the Music Team for a show-stopping time!
