Dear Parents and Guardians / A Thuismitheoirí agus a Chaomhnóirí,

New School

Yesterday we met with the architect from the OPW overseeing the new build and visited the site. Although they are about a week behind the scheduled plan, the progress is great and brickwork has begun, and the site is huge!


GAA KITS – We are still missing many kits, please return them to the office asap. Thank you.


The school will close for the Christmas holidays on Tuesday 22nd December at 12 noon and re-open on Wednesday 6th January 2016.


Our School Calendars are available for sale every morning in the yard. The 100thand 150th person to buy a calendar will win a small prize.


Congratulations to Ruben in 4th class who performed in the Bord Gáis Theatre on Monday evening and will be appearing in ‘Oliver’ in January in the National Concert Hall!
