.SONRAĺ TÁBHACHTA (School Record)  Má tá seoladh nó uimhir  ghutháin nua cuir in iúil dúinn é. If you have changed address or phone number over the summer please forward to the office. If you would like to be notified by email please send that to our school email address .

We would appreciate if School expenses (€50 per child or €60 per family) could be paid no later than the 30th of September, part of this covers the cost of school book rental scheme and every child must have it paid before availing of the scheme, go raibh maith agaibh.

Athchúrsáil (Recycling)

As part of our recycling initiative we would ask all children to bring all lunch wrappings home with them. We would also encourage the children to use drink bottles or flasks instead of juice boxes as these are also better for the environment and cut down on rubbish. Míle buíochas! Táimid an-sásta leis na boscaí lóin atá lán le bia folláin. Maith sibh a thuismitheoirí! Keep up the great work with the healthy lunches!


There are only 6 weeks left of swimming lessons for this term and we would encourage all children to take part.

Mairead Hackett will start dance classes every Thursday after the Halloween break (more info to follow in next newsletter).
