Dear Parents and Guardians/A Thuismitheoirí agus a Chaomhnóirí,

Value of the Month is Responsibility


Trick r Treat for Temple Street

The efforts to dress up on Friday 22nd Oct were frightfully impressive and we raised €463 for Temple St., well done all!


Visit by Minister Pascal Donohue and the Co-ordinator of Maths Week

You may have seen us feature in the Irish Times and some posts on Twitter.  The children engaged really well with a mock budget exercise and the Minister for Finance spoke with the children.  A valuable lesson came through that when increasing funding in one area it has to come from somewhere else.

Board of Management Annual meeting with parents/guardians followed by PTA AGM

will be held on the evening of 24th November 2021 over Zoom.  All parents welcome, details will follow closer to the date.


Upcoming Dates:

  • Celebrating Diwali today
  • Science week next week
  • Parent Teacher Meetings (on Zoom): 16th – 18th
  • School Closes Early (for Primary Language Curriculum Training): 12:30pm 24th November.

Frása na Seachtaine: “Cad a cheapann tú?” – “What do you think?”
