A Second Hand Uniform Sale will take place on 22nd and 26th June at 9am – this initiative is an opportunity to enable parents dress their children for school at a reduced cost. Donations of good quality school uniforms/tracksuits are required and can be left into the school during the school day.
In view of good weather forecast and that some parents may wish to donate uniforms/tracksuits for the second hand shop., children are permitted to wear white t-shirts, plain knee length shorts. Obviously, all parents may use their own discretion.
REMINDER: Please send a self-addressed envelope with a stamp on it to the class Teacher as soon as possible in order to receive your child’s school report. Reports will be posted on Tuesday 20th June.

At the moment we are organizing our classes & teachers for next year. Teaching jobs are sanctioned by the Department of Education based on the pupil population.

GP Fee for 2017/2018
The GP fee covers book rental, 24 hour insurance, school journal as well as the provision of laptops and iPads for the children. The Board of Management has decided to separate the book rental element from the rest of the GP fee. To facilitate the purchase of books and equipment,we are asking you to pay this book rental fee before the end of the school year as follows:
The book rental fee is:
Junior Infants to 1st class (inclusive) €50
2nd class to 6th class €75.
The balance of the GP fee up to €100 (€160 or €200) must be paid before 15th September.
Because so many books are bought by the school, every child benefits and the number of books that need to be purchased by families is greatly reduced.
The school office will remain open, up to and including 7th July. Online payment is available (details on school website). We also operate a “payment by installments” scheme to facilitate easy payments. Please contact the office to collect a form.
