Are you having a clear out!

We are aware that many people are doing a spring clean this time of the year and children may have grown out of particular toys/games, etc. We are currently looking for Board Games with all their pieces, jigsaws with all the pieces and lego/duplo/building blocks. If you have any of these items please drop them into Sorcha’s class and they will be distributed amongst the classes.

  • As always children and parents from Glasnevin ET are welcome to come in through the pedestrian gate at 8:35am at the earliest and parents are responsible for their children at this time.
  • Mulching  –  all willing volunteers are welcome on the 1st and 3rd Friday of every month from February to June so please contact the office.
