Irish Chess Champ

Our 3rd class teacher, David, is heading to Georgia on Saturday to represent Ireland in the Chess Olympics. We wish David great success in this fantastic competition.

Safe and Courteous Driving

We’ve received a email from our neighbours at NSAI about some of our motorists using their entrance as a drop-off zone with dangerous reversing and unsafe maneuvers witnessed and traffic blockages caused for their staff.  We realise that the road is very busy at drop-off time and urge you to drive carefully and mindful of others particularly pedestrians and cyclists.
