SCHOOL NEWS in Brief…..

1st June 2017


From the Principal’s desk:


School will be closed for Junior Infants tomorrow, Friday 2nd June as we are holding the reception morning for incoming infants.


In exciting news, the work on the Fort in Linear Park has begun. Weather permitting, we are hoping that all work will  be completed by the week after next! We will keep you posted!!!


We had our annual Grandparent’s Day today with Junior Infants. It was a lovely morning with grandparents (and even great-grandparents!) travelling from all over Dublin, Sligo, Meath, Louth, Tipperary, Offaly, Kildare, Cork, Monaghan, Carlow ...and even as far away as Iceland to name but a few places! Thank you to all the families for making such an effort to be here! It was a really memorable morning for all involved!



Please check for lost property at the gate in the morning. All items left at the weekend will be donated to charity.
