Welcome Back

Published: 14 Sep 2017

 As we approach the middle of our first month back in school I wish to take this opportunity to thank all parents and children for making the transition so smooth and efficient. Our Junior Infants, who thought their first day in Big School would never arrive, are now independent and competent little individuals who have already made immense progress. I also wish to thank and acknowledge all our parents who have ensured that their children are fully equipped for school with books, bags and uniforms. Money invested in your child’s education is always money well spent. I hope the forthcoming school year is one of achievement, happiness and prosperity for the whole school community.

Congratulations to our school’s Green School Committee on spear heading the school’s successful campaign to gain its 6th Green Flag. Over the past 2 years the committee has focussed on the theme of Biodiversity in our school with the aim of enhancing the habitats within our school environment. They had tremendous success and extended the programme to every class and corner of the school. The committee travelled to the Helix in Dublin on the 23rd of May to receive the flag!!!
