December 10th, 2015

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We hope you are well this week. Our news is as follows

  • Can I please ask all parents to take care in the car park particularly in the mornings. If you are walking your child in to school please do not cause an obstruction in the car park. Please drop your child and return to your car as soon as possible as staff members are having great difficulty getting parking spaces in the morning. The Gardai have informed us that parents may park on the road as long as they do so in a safe manner. Please do not cause an obstruction or block someone from exiting or entering the car park. Please slow down entering and exiting the car park as small children may be walking through the car park also.  We appreciate your co-operation as we want everyone to be able to get in to school in a safe manner.

  • Our school website has undergone a huge amount of work recently as it has been redesigned over the past few months. There is a very useful links tab on the home page which will bring you to a variety of curriculum related and educational websites. This note is posted every week also so if you miss it or misplace it look at the website.
