  • Feedback was very positive from parents in relation to the proposed before/after school care for children in the school. Our Board of Management, at their recent meeting, agreed in principle with the proposal. The next step is for certain aspects of the proposal to be clarified to the Board in early January. Then, the full details will be presented to parents to begin the process of registering/booking for September 2017.
  • Thanks to the Parents Association for organising Santa to come to the school today. Thanks to our senior classes for accompanying our younger classes to the Halla.
  • A reminder that we finish school early next Thursday at 11.45 for Junior/Senior Infants and their siblings and 12 for the rest of the school. We return to school on Monday January 9th.

Thank you,

With best wishes for a happy and safe Christmas.
