Buíochas agus beannachtaí an tseasúir

I also want to say a special well done to all the children for the energy and enthusiasm they have shown since their return to school.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all parents for your continued support throughout what has been a challenging year for everyone. I also want to acknowledge and say thanks to the incredible teaching and non-teaching staff of our school for all they have done this year, how they have adapted to change and made new arrangements and protocols work seamlessly.
