OUR SCHOOL

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.

REMINDER - Return to school - April 12th

  • 11th Apr 2021 7:21 pm

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

  • 24th Mar 2021 3:00 pm

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
