School note May 29th.


Dear parents,

                   Last Saturday, the boys and girls of Second Class made their First Holy Communion. The day was a great success. All the hard work by Mrs Dillon and the children was in evidence. Thanks also to SNA’s  Anna Henn and Nora Casey who assisted on the day and to all who helped out. Thanks once again to the ladies of the Parents Association who provided tea and coffee for families afterwards.

              Well done to all the members of the Under 13 hurling team who lost narrowly in the semi final of the Olo Cup last Friday. They were a credit to the school, their club and themselves. We are indebted to Mr Lordan and Mr Hennessy who put so much thought and effort into preparing this team over the last two years.

            All classes from First to Sixth go on School Tour tomorrow. Please ensure your child is at school in time. Tour details are on

                  All children are asked to stay in the schoolyard as on a normal school morning until their teacher brings them to the bus. No spending money needed. No mobile phones, cameras, or any IT devices allowed. This decision was agreed at Board of Management level.  Every year, valuable items are lost or left behind on buses, in dressing rooms or other areas. The school is also acutely conscious of the issue of Cyberbullyng. .No exceptions will be made in this regard.

               If there is any delay on the return journey, the school will text parents. I am sure everybody will have a great day.  The children from this school can always be relied upon to represent the school impeccably, no matter the occasion.

          The next meeting of the Parents’ Association will take place on Monday June 10th. at 8.30 p.m. in the school

           School will be closed all of next week and reopen on Monday June 10th.

Gach dea-ghui
