We would like to create and environment where children will acquire and develop the necessary knowledge and skill to become independent, confident learners – where they will develop their self-esteem to enable them to express and achieve their full potential. We will endeavour to broaden each child’s experience to help them become spiritual, well-balanced and tolerant individuals with a respect for themselves and others.
Hello, I hope you all had a lovely Easter, that you got lots of Easter eggs and that you enjoyed the full weather experience from sunshine, hailstones, gale force winds and snow! Only in Ireland. We are ready to welcome back all the boys and girls on Monday. As you know the Return to School Declaration form must be completed after every absence and school or class closure. The declaration will automatically become available for you to complete from 3:00 pm on Sunday 11th April on Aladdin Connect. If you cannot fill it in on Aladdin you can send in a written Declaration form. As before, the chidren should wait at the railings for the staff on duty to direct them into the playground. Fifth and sixth classes will start at 8:50 am, as before, and third and fourth classes at 9:00 am. Again, there is no pressure around uniforms. Thank you for your continued support. We are really looking forward to getting back to routine, and to welcoming the children back. Enjoy the weekend, take care, Kind regards Regina
The Easter Bunny snuck into the PE hall after school today and delivered an Easter Egg to every boy and girl in the school! They will be given out tomorrow for them to take home and enjoy! Have you ever seen as many Easter Eggs before?! Many thanks to Ms Halpin for her kindness and generosity.
We will be closing for the Easter holidays tomorrow (Friday 26th March) and we will be re-opening on Monday 12th April. The 5th and 6th classes will finish at 11:50 a.m. and the 3rd and 4th classes will finish at 12:00 p.m. If any child has to collect a brother or sister from the Junior School, Ms Halpin has arranged with Miss Mullins to let them go in through the adjoining gate in the playground. Ms Halpin will be with them while they wait to collect their sibling at 12:00. The children do not have to wear their school uniform tomorrow.
Parents/Guardians, We would like to use this opportunity to remind you about tootoot which we currently use in Divine Mercy SNS. It’s an award winning reporting platform that gives every child in the school a voice. The tootoot team have given every pupil a unique login and password that they can use to login to tootoot on their laptop, tablet or phone. These will be handed out over the next few days. Remember: “Students can use tootoot to report anything ranging from issues of bullying and cyber bullying, to questions about homework or worries about a friend.” Here is a useful link for parents that should help you with any questions that you may have: https://tootoot.co.uk
The children in Mr. Dooley’s class made the most of the sunshine this afternoon when they found shapes that tessellated in the yard. After finding them they then coloured them in using different coloured chalk. The final effect was brilliant! Well done boys and girls!

Parents/Guardians, We were all delighted to see the children back in Divine Mercy SNS yesterday morning! We hope they enjoyed their first day back! We apologise for the issue regarding the Return to School Declaration forms. Aladdin have since contacted us to let us know that they have fixed the problem, so if you have not signed the online declaration form, you can do so now. Thank you for your support and understanding in this matter, but we have to adhere to Government, HSE and Department of Education protocols and guidelines, Kind regards Regina
Parents/Guardians, Our Aladdin Connect system is down and we are unable to see who has completed the Return to School Declaration Forms online. This means that parents will need to complete the paper version of the form. These will be given to you outside the school gate this morning so please ensure that you have filled these in for your child/children. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Parents/Guardians, Please remember to complete the Return to School Declaration Form for each of your children before returning to school tomorrow. It is essential to complete the Return to School Declaration form on the Aladdin app before your child can return to Divine Mercy SNS. You will also find a paper form attached to an email sent out during the week and the forms will also be available in the school office. In the recent guidelines on the Return of School from the Department of Education it states that a Return to School Declaration form must be completed for every child before s/he comes back into school. All the staff are looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow morning! Best wishes, Regina Halpin
