Dear Parents & Guardians,

The school will reopen on Tuesday 31st August at 9.15am for all classes. We look forward to welcoming everyone back after the summer holiday. Please read this important information here BEFORE Tuesday.

Junior Infants parents ONLY: Please follow the letter sent to you by Ms. McCann a short time ago.  If you’re unsure about anything, contact the school on Monday 30th August.


School lunches: Pupils must bring their own HEALTHY lunch and water to school for the first week. Free school lunches will start again from Monday 6th September.

Books, copies, pencils etc. Pupils are expected to bring along everything on the class booklist which is available here or on the school website. Pupils are not permitted to share items.

Return any rental school books your child may still have. Put them into a bag, send them in with your child for the class teacher.

Payments to the school – see the class booklist for the amount due. You will receive a message today from the school that will allow you make electronic payment to the school.

Optional extra pupil insurance cover: We will send you information soon.

Uniforms: Pupils are expected to wear the school uniform every day. It is optional to buy a sew-on school crest from the school secretary.  Put €4.00 in an envelope and the teacher will collect it from your child. The crest will be sent home with your child.

Covid-19 Control Reminders: We will continue as per last term…

For children– this means class bubbles, handwashing, hand sanitisers, teachers wearing masks, social distancing and going home, if they have symptoms of COVID-19. Children from 4th class upwards have the option of wearing a mask.

Children may bring their own wipes/sanitiser if they wish.

For parents – this means communicating with the school by telephone or email (teacher email addresses are here and on the school website),  not congregating outside the school, keeping symptomatic children at home and collecting children who develop symptoms of COVID-19. Always make an appointment by phone if you need to speak with a staff member.

Children should also remain at home if they display any of these symptoms:

  • high temperature – 38 degrees Celsius or above.
  • a new cough – this can be any kind of cough, not just dry.
  • shortness of breath or breathing difficulties.
  • loss or change in your sense of smell or taste
  • sore throats, headaches, runny stuffy nose, vomiting or diarrhoea.

Please make sure that you answer/return any phone calls from the school without delay.

Parents are personally responsible for compliance with public health advice about foreign travel. Please see the government-advice on international-travel.

See more in our updated Covid-19 Response Plan here.

Parking: Please Do NOT park along the school wall. Park at the Tennis Courts, the Playground, the Soccer Pitch or GAA Pitch. From here, walk your child/children to the school gates. If you think it is safe from your child to do so, encourage your child to cycle or walk to school.

New teaching staff: We welcome Ms. Ciana Callanan and Ms. Maria Corduff to our permanent teaching staff. We also welcome back Ms. Norah Toman to our staff. Ms. Ciana Callanan will also be our new deputy principal. We will miss Mr. Hughes, Ms. Henry and Mr. Casey for all their great work as teachers in our school.

Please check/read your messages and emails regularly for updates from the school especially in the coming days as we settle back. We’ll share more information about sports and music soon.

Contact the school secretary by phone from Monday 30th August @ (094) 986 0646.

Kind regards,

Noel Loftus, Principal
