School Uniform for Junior & Senior Infants
Following consultation between the Parents Association and the school staff, the board of management has provisionally taken a decision that from September next year, 2019, Junior & Senior Infants will wear the school tracksuit only. An exception will be made for the present junior infants, as they have already purchased uniforms. If you have concerns in relation to this, please email the school office on or before Wednesday next 12th December.
Road Traffic The PA have forwarded a letter to Kildare County Council and local representatives regarding road traffic and safety concerns. A similar letter is now available on the website on the Parents/Parents Association tab. We kindly ask as many parents to download this letter and send to Kildare County Council on your own behalf. This will highlight the great need for traffic calming measures or a school traffic warden in our local area
