Buildings Update

Thank you to all of the families both in the school and on our 2018 waiting list for all of the emails you have been busy sending to local representatives and the support you have shown for us. We have had many meetings and pledges to escalate our needs with the Department of Education and will keep you posted on any progress.


Parent & Toddler Group

Meets every Tuesday 08:30 – 10:30 in the school. All families are welcome to attend. This is a great way to get to know and catch up with other parents. This is also open to families outside of the school community so please spread the word.



COMEDY NIGHT THIS THRUSDAY  – We are running a comedy night fundraiser on this Thursday February 1st in MVP on Clanbrassil St. We have a great line up, including some parents from the school! Admission is €10 will be available at the door. Funds to raise money for Sports Equipment.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR AFTERSCHOOL ACTIVITIES – We need parent volunteers to help run the after school programme. Parent’s role is to support facilitators rounding up and shepherding children to the various locations, bringing children to go to the toilet, and so on. Please email [email protected] if you can help for an hour one day a week. Garda vetting is required.


Thanks, Dermot & Staff.
