SCHOOL NEWS in Brief…..

22nd March 2018


From the Principal’s desk:

What a term we have had! It most certainly has been busy!!! We will have all the news from each class up on the website over the next few days! Make sure to check it out!

The Easter Raffle will take place tomorrow! They are some eggcellent prizes so make sure to get your tickets (€5) in the morning if you have not already purchased!  


We will also have the finale to our Read-a-thon which we are all looking forward to with our Breakfast Party in the morning! Thank you for all your support with this initiative!

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


A reminder that school will close for the Easter holidays at 12pm tomorrow and re-open on Monday, 9th April.  



Wishing you all a safe and happy break over the holidays and I look forward to seeing you back here for our summer term!

From the PA:


Seachtain na Gaelige

Many thanks to all who attended the PA Maidin Caife! There was definitely more than the cúpla focal exchanged!  Thank you also to Caroline Chambers who stretched and toned parents with a Pilates Class as Gaeilge - a great success!


Read-a-thon End & Breakfast Party in the Yard - Friday 23rd March

After weeks of reading, and fundraising, the Read-a-thon will come to an end this Friday in the school yard!  We will be collecting all funds raised and rewarding all children with a breakfast party in the yard from 08h30 - 09h00. We are welcoming all baked goods, fruit snacks, etc. - encouraging a healthier type of treat where possible!  NO NUTS please. 


Please note that all children will be given tokens to exchange for treats, to limit the intake!!! Many thanks to all for your support on Friday, and also for your support with the Read-a-thon.




Irish Course for Adults Update

Many thanks to all for filling out the expression of interest for the Adults Irish Classes. We had over 100 responses, with 34% of parents keen to pursue Irish classes and most favouring a blend of classroom and online learning.  Details to follow on the class options, and then we hope to sign up the willing participants!

Wishing you all a lovely Easter Break!

Forest School with Caroline…..

Forest School has come to an end in Rang 2. I want to say a big thank you to Ms Farrelly, Ms Ormiston, Christina, Luiza and especially to all the children in Rang 2. Thank you to all the parents who made the trek to Iveagh Gardens on Parents’ Day. We had a wonderful sunny Tuesday and a very wet day Wednesday. Here are a few memories of Rang 2 2018. Thanks to Michelle (Ben’s – R2 mum) for some of the images below! See you all in Rang 3!!!
