Pupils from Curracloe National School got on swimmingly last week when they were presented with special certificates by former pupil and surf school owner, Jack Tim Murphy.

Sixty students, aged between eight and 13, were awarded the swimming certificates to mark the progress that they've made in their swimming technique.

The lucky students also received iPads for their school, two of which were presented by school parents Jessie and Esther O' Connor who raised funds for the iPads through participating in the Dublin City Marathon. A further three iPads were donated to the students by the Parent's Council.

According to school secretary, Teresa Canning, the students were delighted to receive the certificates following many months of swimming lessons.
