OUR SCHOOL

We would like to create an 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.

One Million Trees - Planting Day!

  • 17th Dec 2021 7:23 pm

As part of our contribution to the INTO and Self-help Africa One Million Trees campaign we planted 17 trees today; a beautiful, bright, crisp day-perfect for a bit of gardening! We planted native Irish trees: 3 alder, 3 hawthorn, 3 birch, 3 Hazel, 3 rowan and 2 Oak trees. A big thank you to Roddy and Dominic for all of their help and hard work preparing for today. The kids did a fantastic job too! We raised €300, which will be used to plant 1500 trees in Africa! A special thank you must go to Viktor in Room 4, who so generously donated €50 from his own savings. How very kind Viktor, what a wonderful gift to give! That will provide developing communities with 250 trees! Thank you to all of the children for making today such a success. Maria Meehan

Christmas Holiday Information

Christmas Holiday Information

  • 16th Dec 2021 1:45 pm

Dear Parents/Guardians, I hope you are all keeping safe and well. As we are approaching the Christmas Holiday I would like to bring the following items to your attention. The school will close for the holidays at 12 noon on Wednesday, December 22nd. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday will all be Christmas Jumper Days. If your son/daughter has a Christmas jumper they can wear it on 1 or all 3 of these days. As a precaution we will be allowing the children to take home their book boxes next week. This is to facilitate in the unlikely event that the schools will not reopen on January 6th and we move to remote learning. We sincerely hope that this will not be the case. If it is the case that your child will not be in school next week, please ensure that they take their book boxes home with them on Friday. Kind Regards, Mary Hyland, Acting Principal
