Welcome back everyone, hope you all enjoyed the summer holidays and are ready for another school year.
We welcome our new Junior Infant class, Charlie McCarthy, Kevin Hickey, Tadhg O'Connor, Savannah Viray and Grace O'Brien. We welcome Alex Viray to Fourth Class and we welcome Ms. Jessica Coakley to the staff of the school.



As we start the school year please ensure that your child/children's school jumpers, coats and school supplies are clearly marked with their name/s as this will help with class organisation. www.MyNametags.ie supply a wide variety of nametags if needed. All children attending are expected to wear full uniform unless directed otherwise. The School uniform consists of a Navy Pinafore/ Skirt, Pants/ navy denim (blue denim or tracksuits with large writing are not acceptable), Red -t-shirt with collar (sports shirt), Navy - Jumper or Cardigan, Navy - Socks/tights (girls). During warmer weather, if your child wishes to wear shorts please ensure that plain navy shorts are worn (not denim).
We would ask everyone to make a special effort to wear their school jumper and to discourage the use of other tops.

During our new school year we wish to continue our healthy eating policy. It important that your child/children eat a healthy, balanced and varied lunch. Crisps, sweets, chocolate and fizzy drinks should never be included in your child's school lunch.

*Please note that peanuts or health bars which may contain peanuts are also not to be included in your child's lunch.


We again ask everyone not to drive into or turn at the school entrance and to please drop children along the footpaths. The school will be reviewing the traffic plan regularly and will also co- ordinate with the building company across from the school to ensure a safe environment for the school community.

All absences must be forwarded in writing to the school and should include an explanation and the date/s of absence. Please see the back of your child's homework journal for appropriate notes. The school is legally obliged to report any child who misses twenty or more days in a school year to the Child and Family Agency TÚSLA.

Just a reminder that morning supervision in the school starts at 9.15a.m.

Junior infants go home at 12:30 for the first two weeks. Infants have the option of staying in the Infant club until 3:10 at a cost of €2 a day. This will resume for Senior Infants on September 10th. After the first two weeks the Junior infants will also have the option of the Infant club but the school would advise to give them few weeks to get used to the long day as some children can be very tired at 2.10.

All homework is to be signed by parents on completion every night.

Junior and Senior Infants - Mrs. Matilda Crowley (Deputy Principal)
First and Second Classes - Ms. Jessica Coakley until Easter when Ms. Orla O'Sullivan returns from maternity leave.
