Dear Parents and Guardians/A Thuismitheoirí agus a Chaomhnóirí,

Child Protection Inspection

Round two of the inspection is happening on Monday and Tuesday.  I will be in touch with the PTA seeking a few volunteers to meet with the Inspectorate.  Please click here to familiarise yourself with matters relating to Child Protection relevant to you as parents.

Peace & Justice

We are planning our value focus for the month of May on Peace and Justice.  There’s more to follow soon.

School sport

The girls’ soccer team had their last match today in Albert College against Mother Divine Grace, they played so well and really came together as a team.  Well done girls!

The boys’ soccer team also finished yesterday in a very close game.

The girls’ camogie team played their first game last week and had a very close game with Scoil an tSeacthtar Laoch and came out on top!

The boys hurling team have a match today at 2pm, fingers crossed.
