Dear Parents,

Please see some important notices for your attention.

Although the days are cold at the moment we are delighted to notice the brightening mornings and slight stretch in daylight hours. We request that children wear an extra layer under their t-shirt in this weather. We also urge parents , grandparents and childminders who are walking children to school to be careful of footpaths and slippy manhole covers.


We welcomed our new secretary, Gráinne Clancy to the school this month. We wish her well in her new role. The school secretary may be contacted on 057 8646868 during school hours.


Our school staff and school community were saddened at the recent death of Paddy Earley. Our thoughts and prayers are with Carina, Stephen and Noah at this time.
